Chandigarh, December 12
The concluding day of the two-day annual function organised by the students of Chandigarh Baptist School, Sector 45, proved to be a kaleidoscope of Indian cultural heritage which kept the audience spellbound for around two hours at Tagore Theatre in Sector 18 here today.

Around 600 students participated in the function that witnessed various folk dances from different regions, skits and short plays depicting national integration. The programme started with a prayer, which was followed by a welcome dance. The audience was then taken to the beautiful valley of Kashmir through a Kashmiri dance, which was followed by a Rajasthani dance, Marathi dance, Bengali dance, Assamese dance, bhangra, gidha and a dance from Mizoram.

Patriotism of Rana Pratap and the valour of Rajputs were successfully portrayed by the students through a well-written script and beautifully decorated set. The songs and poems presented by some students also lent an air of patriotism.

While presenting the annual report, Mr Arun John Masih said the school was committed onwards promoting academic excellence and personal, social and physical development of each student. Awarding merit certificates to the students, Rev Shoemake from the USA, appealed to the students to be sincere towards their career.

On the inaugural day of the function yesterday, the junior wing students presented barbie doll, umbrella and butterfly dance along with qawali, songs, mono acting and bhangra and gidha. Rev Mohit Robinson presented a vote of thanks.
