The grounds of Spring Dale Senior School came alive on Friday with glimpses from different states highlighting India’s unity in diversity. The occasion was the 67th Death Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, and India’s apostle of peace. The Management, Staff and Students of Spring Dale Senior School paid rich tributes to the Mahatma on this occasion.

Two minutes silence was observed in the entire school. Thereafter, the students staged a colourful choreography depicting the cultures of various states of the country. Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that the event afforded the students with a chance to know more about the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, particularly his belief in secularism.

“It helped instill a sense of patriotism, respect for their country as well as the sacrifices of those who helped the country attain its independence from the British Rulers,” he said. Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Educational Society, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Director and Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that Mahatma Gandhi was one of the biggest proponents of peace in history.

“As the institution itself is at the forefront of peace building measures between India and Pakistan, we salute Mahatma Gandhi for the sacrifices that he made for the sake of India’s freedom, particularly his non-violent approach to the freedom struggle,” they said. They reiterated their commitment to work for peace in the region.
