Celebrating Diversity at the Annual Day Education is incomplete without a child investing and developing upon his interests, hobbies and passions. The Annual Day Programme is an event that provides a platform wherein students come forward and showcase their talents and interests. We believe that for the overall development of a child, they should be given outlets to exhibit their interests

The virtual Annual Day Programme held this year was as colourful, dramatic and full of surprises as it has been since the past ten years. The theme of this year's Annual Day Programme, Rhythm Divine 10 was “Celebrating Diversity”.

All students showcased varied performances and creativity through dance, singing, performing yoga, exhibiting their culinary skills and beautiful paintings in the show.

Celebrating Diversity at the Annual Day The energy and confidence displayed left audiences applauding and praising them wholeheartedly. Parents especially appreciated the skit performance presented by the pre-primary students which highlighted the diversity seen amongst the working class. The skit ended with a noble message: “Every profession has its own significance and value, and there is balance in the society all because of each other's support.”

Children in the colourful traditional fineries, represented different states across India and abroad, doing folk dances,as well as dancing to the tunes of songs from South Africa, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Japan. They gave a tour of the world and different cultures through their performances. Magic shows were also part of the day’s performance.

Following are words scriven by Ms. Phadke on the occasion:

“भाषासु मुख्या मधुरा
दिव्या गीर्वाणभारती

तस्यां हि काव्यं मधुरं
तस्मादsपि सुभाषितम्”

संस्कृत भाषा म्हणजे गीर्वाणभारती देवीवाक् हे आपण जाणतोच जशी ही भाषा भारताचे प्राचीन वैभव म्हणून ओळखले जाते, त्याचप्रमाणे संस्कृत ग्रंथसंपदा ,महाकाव्ये अनेक मधूर सुभाषिते संस्कृत भाषेचे सौंदर्य खुलवतात सुभाषित या शब्दाचा अर्थ आहे “सु” म्हणजे चांगले “भाषित” म्हणजेच बोललेले जसे सुविचार चांगले विचार।

म्हणूनच मनुष्याच्या जीवनात दीपस्तंभ होऊन त्याची जीवनवाट प्रकाशित करण्याचे कार्य सुभाषिते करतात.सुभाषिते म्हणजे ज्ञानाची खाण आहे, अनुभवांची खाण आहे। सुसंस्कृत समृद्ध जीवन कसे जगावे याची शिकवण सुभाषिते आपल्याला वेळोवेळी देत असतात। अल्पाक्षरी आणि महान अर्थ सूचित करणारी सुभाषिते संस्कृत मध्ये अगणित आहेत। सुभाषितकार अनेक आहेत. आपण आजही सुभाषिते वाचतो, गातो किंवा ऐकतो ही कोणी लिहिली?

याचे रचनाकार कोण? याचा उल्लेख सहजपणे कुठेच आढळत नाही सांगण्याचे तात्पर्य हे की, कोणतेही काम असो वा नसो त्याची प्रसिद्धी मिळावी अशी प्रत्येकाची इच्छा असते परंतु, सुभाषित कारांचे हे वैशिष्ट्य आहे की, त्यांनी कुठेही त्यांच्या नावाचा उल्लेख केलेला दिसून येत नाही। म्हणजेच “मीपण ज्यांचे गळाले रे” हा अहंपणा निघून गेला आहे हे प्रथमदर्शनीच आपल्या लक्षात येते हेच सुभाषितकारांचे विशेष आहे।

अगदी पुराण काळातील जुनी सुभाषिते त्यांचा मतितार्थ आजच्या काळात तिचे योग्य परखड शिकवण अथवा बोध देणारी आहेत यातून समाज दर्शन, हर्ष, क्रोध, विटंबना, प्रेमभावना, त्याग भावना तसेच अनेक वृत्ती यांचे दर्शन व संस्कृतचे विविध पैलू आपल्याला बघायला मिळतात।
