Happy Independence Day!

Dear all
Today is 15 August 2010. Exactly 63 years have passed since we, Indians, under the very courageous leadership of the likes of Gandhi, Nehru, Bhagat Singh and many others, won our independence from the imperialism of British rule.

At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance ... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again ...... Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru
Anyways, the day is a national holiday in India. All over the country, flag-hoisting ceremonies are conducted. The main event takes place in New Delhi, where the Prime Minister hoists the National Flag at the Red Fort and delivers a nationally televised speech from its ramparts. A colourful pageant showcasing India’s cultural diversity, symbolic depictions of the country’s advances in science and technology, and a joint display of India’s military capabilities by the armed forces are an essential part of the Independence Day celebrations.
Students of our school also, religiously, conducted a special assembly in the name of India's 63rd Independence Day. Cultural programmes like songs, dance, and drama marked the event. Though it was the magnificent march past which stole the show away. Keep up the good work friends and keep growing with each passing moment ...
Facts apart, we want to know how YOU, as an individual, justify your privilege of being a Free Indian. Tell us why do you deserve this tag...or rather, do we really deserve it? We hope, we really wake up to life and freedom and DO something so that no one dares to put up a question mark on our status of being a Proud, Free Indian...
Let's flood the comments section to discuss our duties while we enjoy our privileges (Freedom Of Speech is just one of the million rights we enjoy every day, without even realising their values!). Lets unite once again to fight the newly arrived challenges of this era ...
Happy Independence Day to all ...

Kite Flying Can Hamper Electricity Supply and Endanger Lives

Dear All

·         Kite flying should be avoided since the wires of kites are metallic coated which, when in contact with live electricity wires, cause them to trip and hence disrupt power supply.

·         The metallic coated manjha is a good conductor of electricity and can prove life threatening as it can electrocute people.

·         According to estimates, tripping of just one 33/66 KV overhead line can disrupt power supply to over 10,000 residents of an area. Similarly, tripping of a single 11 KV line can affect over 2,500 residents.

·         During Independence Day celebrations in 2009, over 100 such tripping were reported. The extent of delays/ damage can well be ascertained in Delhi!

·         Kite flying in restricted areas such as Metro installations and other stipulated areas can also invite hefty penalties.
