“If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.”
~ Margaret Mead
Jesus and Mary Convent School successfully hosted its various cultural events and amongst them was the Rang Sagar function, a Cultural Extravaganza by classes Nursery, LKG and UKG. On 2nd December, the students of the Preprimary section presented dances and dramas sharing various messages of great importance.
The function began with a warm welcome by the students of the school followed by lamp lighting to auspiciously usher the event forward. The first presentation was a vibrant welcome dance by the LKG students followed by a graceful prayer dance by UKG students. The dancers lit up the stage with their marvellous movements.
The chief guest for the day was Mrs. Mridula Ray Bharadwaj, a renowned advocate of Supreme Court of India since 1981. She was felicitated and presented with a bouquet as representation of gratitude for her eminent presence at the function. Then the Principal of the school, Reverend Father Rogimon Thomas shared his message of inspiring young minds and giving them opportunities to explore the world of learning. The school profile was then presented which illumined the gathering about the various aspects of the school including infrastructure, facilities, academics offered and the vision guided by the school motto “Learn to love and serve as root and foundation of life.”
The school profile was followed by a dance by the little angels of Nursery class expressing the spirit of achieving our dreams. Our little champs have many dreams, we can give them wings to fly and touch the sky. The cheerful performance was followed by an enrapturing Nukkad Natak by the tiny tots of LKG, showcasing the harsh reality of our technology driven world where we spend limitless time addicted to mobile phones.
After the Nukkad Natak, the brilliant boys of Nursery class brought wide smiles on the faces of all audience with their exuberant “Retro to Metro” fusion dance. The songs of various eras touched a heart chord of each of the different generations present. This was followed by another performance by Nursery students: A skit based on the famous 1974 short story, “Ek, Anek aur Ekta”. The beauty of it lay in its magnetic storytelling, replete with moral values of teamwork, determination and unity.
The cultural event was then graced by the words of guidance and inspiration of the chief guest. Mrs. Bharadwaj appreciated the program and the efforts by the school to maintain the high standard of education. A memento was then presented to Mrs. Bharadwaj as gratitude for her distinguished presence at the event.
Then the girls of class LKG performed an emotional dance touching upon the societal issue of suppressing the potential of the girl child. The heartwarming dance by the little princesses reminded us of the significance of gender equality. The last performance for the day was by Class UKG- “Colours of India”: a grand amalgamation which vibrantly exhibited the diversity of cultures in India. Every part has its own identity, with its own culture, language, food and costume. The performance portrayed the seamless collaboration of different cultures and the celebration of togetherness in diversity. Christopher, Inaya, and Maira from class UKG proposed the vote of thanks, after which the entire gathering sang the National Anthem, leading to the conclusion of the grand Cultural Extravaganza.
