"Warriors are not born, they are made in INDIAN ARMY."
Captain Manoj Kumar Pandey lost his life while fighting in Kargil. He said:” If death strikes before I prove my blood, I swear I’ll kill death”. Our students had researched about those brave soldiers who fought valiantly and lost their lives. They presented an informational skit which left the audience nostalgic.
The objective was to reinforce the importance of 26th July 1999 and understand it’s relevance in our History. We showcased a video where children of Shiv Nadar School were asked to recognize some important dates like 14th Nov, 26th January and 5th September etc. and then finally they were asked to recognize 26th July 1999 which left them speechless!
Building on the same note, we showcased a video which brought the Kargil War Alive. Why and where it happened, how many brave soldiers we lost and when did it come to an end explaining the whole event in chronological manner. Finally seeding in the importance of this day in our lives and Indian History.
Then we had a poem recitation by Mansi Grade 9 student where she recited a poem on Kargil War by Late Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Followed by though of the day by Suhani grade 9 student - As George Patton said, “The soldier is the Army. No army is better than its soldiers. The Soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country.”
We concluded the assembly with 2mins silence in the remembrance of our martyrs and National Anthem.
