Dear Children, Teachers, Members of the Staff, and Parents
At the very outset, I wish each one of you a happy republic day. When our nation celebrates 65th Republic Day today, let us pledge to take part in nation building in our own unique ways. It is highly inevitable for all of us to uphold our rich traditions and cherish our culture. In a pluralistic society like that of Shantiniketan Indian School, other members having their on culture and traditions are looking eagerly to us to understand Indian culture and you are our Nation’s Ambassadors who can spread the richness of our values. To make this possible, you need to take extra efforts to understand our values and culture well. I am sure that your parents and teachers give you ample opportunities in this regard. Our dream is that each one of you growing up and developing as integrated personalities and becoming true global citizens who will return to your own country and contribute immensely towards its further development, and also for the world peace at large.
