birth anniversary of Nobel laureate and poet Rabindra Nath Tagore was
celebrated on Thursday 10th May, 2018 in St. Xavier's
High School, Gurgaon. Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore was
a great soul, who not only illumined the time he lived in, but continues to
remain an inspiration for humanity
Students of class IX-A were at their
artistic best to mark the birth anniversary and pay homage to Gurudev RabindraNath
Tagore. A columnist, editor, writer, dramatist,
novelist and a painter, a true genius, Tagore was born in Kolkata.
The assembly started by
sharing inspiring thought quoted by Tagore. This was followed by the recitation
of Bengali rendition and English translation of his famous poem “Where the mind
is without fear”. In the poem, Tagore
imagines a place wherein people are allowed to thrive, free from yolk of fear
The students also
performed a skit based on most loved story of Tagore, “Kabuliwalla.” The
story is tender, a friendship based on the Kabuliwala’s love for his own little
daughter whom he leaves behind in Kabul, and the novelist's little daughter to
whom he gives the love he feels for his own child. This was beautifully depicted
by the students of class IX- A.
assembly came to an end with a group dance on Tagore’s Ekla Chalo Rey. It
was mesmerizing performance which was choreographed by the Dance Teacher. The whole programme was a wonderful experience
for all of the students, teachers and Principal Sir.
