Value of the Month

National Unity day (also known as Rashtriya Ekta Diwas) is celebrated every year on 31st of October by the people throughout India. It is celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel who left no stones unturned to unify India and make her the largest democracy in the world.

Thomas Paine once said, ‘It is not in numbers but in unity that our great strength lies.’ Keeping this view in mind the theme for the soft boards for the month of November was ‘Unity and Integrity’.  The theme was well represented by the students while decorating their boards. The very essence of these words was brought out creatively by the students. Different quotes emphasizing the power of unity in a country with diverse ways of life and culture was well exhibited with the imprints of different palms on a single sheet of paper representing our country with different people from diverse backgrounds. The teachers also discussed the theme in the classes by giving various examples. They also emphasized the importance of unity and integrity, which stressed the importance of being honest and the virtue of togetherness. In the recent times when we are becoming vulnerable to different kinds of changes such kind of themes rejuvenates and rekindles the spirit of humanity within us.
