India’s 73rd Independence Day was celebrated at Bunts Sangha’s S M Shetty Educational Institutions with zeal and patriotic spirit. President, Shri Padmanabha S Payyade unfurled the tricolour to the strains of the National Anthem. Esteemed Office Bearers of Bunts Sangha and distinguished Office Bearers of Powai Education Committee added distinction to the gathering. Chairperson and Office Bearers of Mahila Vibhag and Chairman of Youth Wing also graced the occasion.
The Flag hoisting ceremony was rendered more poignant with our school choir singing the Flag Song and the school band playing the National Anthem with immense pride. This was followed by a colourful programme in the school auditorium. Students across the Institution paid a tribute to the Heroes of Kargil through a musical dance drama. It served as a reminder to all present that we can never forget the gallantry of our armed forces and the sacrifices that they continue to make so that we may know peace.
