“I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.
I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.”
Pankhudi Hyderabad celebrated Republic day with the kids in UPS School Gowlidoddy this year. The day also coincided with Move the wheel’s founders day, which is another NGO associated with the school’s welfare activities.
The day kicked off with the traditional rally where the volunteers accompanied an enthusiastic lot of children who were shouting out patriotic slogans with full gusto. The flag hoisting ceremony took place soon after that with the school principal hoisting the tricolor. The principal delivered a speech after that where he elaborated on the significance of the day and urged the students to become responsible citizens of the country.
The school children presented a kaleidoscope of cultural events after that which included some patriotic speeches, dances and group songs.
The performance that highlighted the event was a Kuchipudi performance by Ms. Sahiti Reddy, a trained classical dancer who was generous enough to perform for the kids. The children were spellbound throughout the performance and were all excited to learn the dance form when asked by the danseuse if they were interested in learning it.
Sweets and snacks were distributed to the children and their parents and lunch was served to the children soon after that.
