Annual Day Celebration (Secondary School) – Kalanjali 2017

The theme for the Annual Day for the Secondary Section was ‘Udaan’. This was a story of Kyra, a young girl who aspired to be a rockstar and play the guitar and enthrall the world with her music. But her dreams were met with opposition by her father, Mr.Shastri, who wanted his daughter to excel in academics and who thought that such dreams and desires were nothing more than a distraction for students. Kyra, who performs at the school Annual Day programme, is sighted by Mr Vinay Nilkanth, an ace musician in search of new musical talent. Vinay wants Kyra to join his music school and undertakes the impossible by trying to convince Kyra’s father who refuses him outright. However, Kyra’s sympathetic mother, who found a cohort in Kyra’s Principal, arranges to have her enrolled at the school. The entire performance comprised Kyra’s struggle for acceptance both in the music school and in her father’s heart and how her dedicated mentor, Vinay, paves the way for her resounding success as a musician, accepted by both, society and her father. The theme of Udaan, the flight towards one’s dreams was woven with performances by various classes and songs, keeping in mind Kyra’s dreams and her stint at the music school, thus encouraging every child to undertake the ‘Udaan’ towards achievement and success.
