The two day Annual Cultural Fiesta 2015 of manav mangal high school, Sec. 21 – C, Chandigarh commenced today at Auditorium : manav mangal SMART SCHOOL, Sector – 64, Mohali. Besides entertaining the audience with their cultural items, children also conveyed the message of importance of values in our lives.
The fiesta began with a presentation highlighting the achievements of the students in scholastic and co-scholastic areas followed by a prayer through which the Almighty was thanked for all His blessings as ‘Blessed is the man who makes The Lord his trust.’Observing the quote by Mahatma Gandhi – Cleanliness is next to Godliness, an endeavour to keep our country clean and green was depicted through a dance performance, ‘Mission – Clean India’.‘Musical Treat’ – an electrifying performance by the children was a package full of coordinated reflexes, timing and presence of mind. Love for parents , our guardian angels , was expressed by the students of the senior wing through a soulful performance, ‘Farishtey’.A daughter is God’s best creation. She adds beauty, grace and charm to life. But is yet insecure. Students performed ‘Mehfooz Jahan’ which heralded and welcomed her into a safe and halcyon world.
An emotional play ‘Idgah’ which depicted immense love and concern of a small boy towards his grandmother was enacted from an extract taken from a novel written by Munshi Premchand. ‘Lord Ganpati’, the supreme God of Glory is always remembered by his lovers as a symbol of good will, positivity and strength. Children danced with great zeal on the rhythmic composition in praise of the Lord.Remembering the golden era of 1950’s to 1960’s, the manavites exhibited an alluring and mesmerizing prop , ‘Andaz Apna Apna’.A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, ‘The, Missile Man of India’, had always been an inspiration to the vibrant youth and was a true ‘People’s President’. The senior students performed an item to pay a tribute to the great legend in “Nayi Roshni, Naya Daur.’
The earth is made for all beings and not only human beings. Animals, too, have a right to live. We need to learn to share. So the message of ‘Live and Let Live’ was wonderfully conveyed through a dance performance. ‘Mujhe Jeene Do, ek pukaar’. People living in India do follow different religions but are joined together by one thread – brotherhood. One must remember that the bond of love should be extended to the entire human fraternity. Hum Sub Ek Hain’ was a performance which beautifully delivered the message of oneness.Patriotism does not only mean to fight liberation of one’s country but includes true love and honest feelings for fellowmen and passionate work for the country’s progress. This spirit of patriotism was exhibited in a dance performance , ‘Salaam India’.Punjabi culture is one of the oldest in world’s history. The Bhangra is perhaps the most virile form and is considered the King of Dances. The children danced vibrantly to the tunes of the electrifying music of Punjab in ‘Rooh Punjab Di’.
The function concluded with an Appreciation Presentation followed by the School Anthem.
