“A thoughtful mind when it sees a nation’s flag, sees not the flag, but the nation itself. Let’s not forget the rich heritage of our country and feel proud to be a part of this nation.”
To reaffirm our devotion, swear our allegiance to our country, acknowledge the sacrifices by our unsung heroes and rededicate ourselves to build a stronger and better India, *Himalaya International School* celebrated the significant event of *74th Republic Day* along with *Basant Panchmi* to worship *Goddess Saraswati*, the deity of knowledge and performing arts.
The celebration started with Unfurling the Tricolor in presence of our esteemed Director Mr. Sunil Dora Sir, Mrs. Honey Dora Madam and venerable Principal Mrs. Sonal Bhatt Madam along with headmistress Mrs. Naghma Khan Madam.
The flag hoisting was followed by the National Anthem and ceremonial March-past that left everyone present brimming with a sense of joy and pride. Saraswati Poojan and Vandana was performed shortly in order to seek blessings of Goddess Saraswati.
