Description: INDEPENDENCE DAY-2022. There was a glorious struggle, hard fought and hard won, in which many fell martyrs and countless others made sacrifices.

No matter where we go, the heart always comes back to the Mother- India. A perfect eastern-western dance amalgamation of ' Phir bhi dil hain Hindusthani' made the audience break in loud cheers, a determination to relish the state of being free.

The teachers' performance on 'Yaha par kadam kadam par dharti badle rang' indeed enhanced the beauty of the day. The day ended with the teachers' performance of 'Aashayein' - with a dream of India, free from all claims, where all would live freely with sincere aspirations, 'where the mind is led forward by thee into ever widening thought and action....'
