20th Anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas

Kargil Vijay Diwas is observed on July 26th to commemorate India’s success in Operation Vijay and victory over Pakistan. On this day, the Prime Minister of the nation pays homage to the brave soldiers at Amar Javan Jyothi.

On July 29, 2019, a number of activities were organized at Amrita Vidyalayam, Kuthuparamba to observe the 20th anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas.

The programme started with breath-taking speeches by two of our students which inspired the entire school, raising their patriotic spirits to the highest level. This was followed by a patriotic song by our students praising Mother Earth. The last item of the on-stage programme was a skit by students keeping the theme of Kargil alive. It quite realistically depicted the courage shown by our soldiers on the battlefield in order to save our country. The touching and motivating skit made the entire school reverberate with the slogan ‘Vande Matharam’.

A drawing and painting competition on the same theme was conducted for students of classes XI and XII on this occasion, and a debate competition was conducted for students of the secondary section. The students presented very apt viewpoints ‘for’ and ‘against’ the motion.
