Incredible India!


INCREDIBLE INDIA made a splash at Noida's Cambridge School the other day. Children in single digit years, and those in the lap of adolescence all vied with each other to put their best foot forward in a festival marked by the presence of Humaira Abid, an eminent painter from Pakistan as one of the judges.

Incidentally, more than 35 schools participated in the two-day festival that was inaugurated by renowned sculptor Ran V. Sutar. Then came the fun part. Day's proceedings began with the lighting of the lamp followed by a superb cultural programme called Fusion which was a blend of Hindustani vocal and Western beats put together by students of Cambridge. Yes, of course, there was something to please the artist in all with a number of art and craft competitions being organised on the occasion. Cartoon making, rangoli, mehndi, sketch, vegetable printing and puppet making, etc., engaged the minds of the young for long hours, many using the opportunity to showcase the best of their skills.

At the end of it all, somebody had to be the winner though actually it was the spirit of competition and camaraderie which prevailed. Noida's Ryan International School was declared the best school and lifted the A.C. Deb Running Trophy even as the Cambridge's Principal Col N.S. Rawat (retd) and Dr Kalyani Roy, Secretary, Society for the Advancement of Education, joined in to thank everybody who made the event a memorable affair.
