Students of Asian International School celebrated Rabindra Jayanti in four phases, virtually. The school staged musical performances and skits, recited poetry and even organised an adda session.
The focus was on the bard’s vision and self-discipline that the students could relate to in their current situation.
Students of classes V to VIII staged Amal O Doiwala, an excerpt from Tagore’s play Dakghar.
The choir sang several songs, while there was also Hindi recitation of the poet’s translated works. An icing on the cake was a boithaki or interactive session on “Tagore’s rhythms”.
The school’s primary section took part in the celebrations, dancing to his songs such as Fule fule dhole dhole.
“Students presented songs and skits that highlighted on self-discipline, patience and love for nature. They are now relating to the bard’s ethos. You need to be self-disciplined and independent to carry on with online study,” said principal Vijaylaxmi Kumar.

Students of Shri Shikshayatan School celebrated Rabindra Jayanti virtually over a period of four days. They paid obeisance to various aspects of Rabindranath Tagore’s works such as women empowerment, education, life and nature.
There were dance performances, rendition of Rabin-drasangeet and recitation of the poems. Students also made a Power Point presentation to let the audience know about the early life of Tagore and his contribution to the world of literature, music, education, art and culture.
The junior section celebrated Rabindra Jayanti and International Workers’ Day jointly. Students from the NGO school, Bhantuali Ekal Vidyalaya, Falta, also participated in the celebration.
The Group D staff members and the admin department of the school also performed on the occasion.
“We celebrated the occasion over four days, because Tagore has plethora of works on every aspect of life and we wanted to motivate people in all those aspects. What Tagore had told or written about a century ago is still relevant,” said principal Sangeeta Tandon.

The students take pride and delight while taking part in this special celebration.
From singing the beautiful lyrics written by the Nobel laureate to performing dances, everything was done by our students,” said principal Joyita Majumder.
