Kargil Vijay Diwas Celebrations by the Narayana Educational Institutions
This year, India will be celebrating the 24th anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas. Every year, on July 26, we honour and commemorate the might of our armed forces, who, while facing innumerable challenges and overcoming extremely unfavourable conditions, took back our land from rival’s control and reinstated the tri-colour flag at its rightful place.
We, at Narayana Educational Institutions, also celebrated Kargil Vijay Diwas on July 25 with great enthusiasm and fervour. Over 200 Narayana schools across India organised special programmes such as speeches, dance performances, and essay-writing competitions to educate students more about this very important part of our nation’s history.
There was a visible passion, excitement, and eagerness among both the participating and non-participating students. Speeches given by students were filled with patriotic ardour, dance performances were intense, and essays written by students displayed their detailed understanding of the events that transpired throughout the 3-month fierce war.
War veterans of Kargil were invited to a special programme organised by the Amritsar branches of the Narayana Educational Institutions, where they were presented with a memento as a token of appreciation for the extraordinary role they played. Brig. Sudhir Kumar, Deputy GOC, 15 Infantry Division, was the distinguished chief guest, while Col. Balwan Singh MVC and Col. RP Singh were our distinguished guests of honour.
Families of students and school staff were cordially invited to this grand three-hour morning event. As proud members of this great nation, this occasion provided parents with an opportunity to instil a sense of patriotism in their children's hearts and educate them about the moral duty of honouring and showing respect to the armed forces.
A momentous interaction took place as distinguished guests from the army unit engaged with our students, providing invaluable insights into the armed forces and inspiring them to chase their dreams of joining their ranks. The stirring presentation encompassed the entire saga of the Kargil War, leaving the students enlightened and motivated to honour the bravery of our soldiers. It was a day of knowledge, inspiration, and a shared vision of a brighter future for our nation.
Director, Dr. P. Sindhura, stated that at Narayana Educational Institutions, we make it our priority that students, while aiming for academic excellence, also have a comprehensive understanding of significant events in the history of our country. The victory at Kargil on July 26, 1999, was the perfect display of skills, bravery, and valour by the Indian Armed Forces, and we wanted to celebrate it with all the glory it deserves. She also appreciated the lively participation of all the students, teachers, and supporting staff.
The successful events that were organised gave our students a chance to display their appreciation for the armed forces through different mediums. Through these experiences, students gained a deeper understanding of important historical events. At Narayana Educational Institutions, we are committed to promoting comprehensive education for our students, which includes instilling values such as respect and pride for our armed forces.
