Shiksha Bharati Blends Education with Culture
Dwarka, with its proximity to the international airport and nearly 50 top-end schools, is among the most modern areas in the Indian capital, New Delhi. And with its strides in improving the educational standards for children, Dwarka is also known as the ‘education hub’ of the capital.
Shiksha Bharati Public School, a 22-year-old temple of education, has the distinction of providing low-cost-high-value education to the local students in and around Dwarka. And it has been doing it with aplomb. The uniqueness in the school’s education system is its ability to give equal attention to academic learning and cultural activities while keeping Indian traditional values intact.
A manifestation of this fact was seen on Nov. 27 when Shiksha Bharati (nearest translation: education India) celebrated its 22nd Annual Day under the theme: “Incredible India.” The event welcomed a local youth leader M.S. Bitta as the chief guest.
Deepak Bhardwaj , founder chairman and J.P. Sharma chairman of the school were the guests of honor while Ramesh Kumari Bhardwaj, school manager and Hitesh Bhardwaj, director, presided over the function.
The evening commenced with the traditional ceremony of lighting of the lamp followed by a stage show by the students of the school. The program started by invoking Lord Ganesha with Ganesh Vandana (prayer) to bestow the devotees with his blessings on this auspicious occasion.
The prayer was followed by a formal welcome of the guests by the school manager and the principal with flower pots, keeping in mind the imperative to conserve the environment. The annual report was read by the principal applauding the students with 100 percent result in Class X and a remarkable performance by the students in Class XII with many students scoring 100 percent in many subjects.
The principal apprised the audience by announcing the introduction of geography in the XI standard. She also congratulated the volleyball team of the school for being selected at the national level. The tiny tots of Shiksha Bharati also exhibited their talent and lit up the stage with their scintillating performance in the attire of the animals and they also performed a show about Chandamama (the moon).
The primary wing students performed an English play, mesmerizing everyone with the sweet music of pied-piper. The highlight of the evening Incredible India: It created an aura of patriotism with the students depicting the patriotic fervor unleashed in Indian states during India’s freedom struggle.
The glimpse of colorful Rajasthan, vibrant Gujarat, dynamic Punjab with Bhangra (a folk dance of Punjab state) left everyone jovial. The dynamic performance of the students on vande matram (a patriotic song) ignited patriotism in everyone present at the show.
