- MILES BRONSON MARKS YET ANOTHER CHILDRENS' DAY WITH POMP AND SHOW Childrens' Day is celebrated to pay a tribute to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for his love and passion for children. The festival is commemorated on Nehru's birth anniversary on 14 November every year. Pandit Nehru is a well known personality who fought for the country's independence and became the first Prime Minister of independent India. He was fondly known as Chacha Nehru by the children. Observed with immense joy, pleasure and enthusiasm, a number of cultural programmes and events are organized for kids by all the schools on this occasion. At MBRS, we always endeavour to ensure children are treated to the best possible entertainment on their day. That single objective led the staff to plan a very elaborate evening programme, fully customised for children. The day began with the lighting of lamps in front of Chacha Nehru's portrait by Dr NK Dutta, Founder & Principal and then moved on to the Morning Assembly which was conducted by staff members, some of them acting like the School Head Boy and School Head Girl. The School anthem, "Hail Ho the Bronsonians" was melodiously sung by all staff members at the end of the Assembly. The Principal spoke on the importance of the day, recalled the extraordinary qualities our first Prime Minister had and exhorted the students to follow his ideals so that they can contribute to the society at large in a constructive manner. Sweets were distributed to all students to mark the day. During the day, Tug of War and Musical Chairs for girl students were organised which proved to be a bigger hit than expected. Early noon saw a thrilling match of Cricket between the Teachers XI and the Students XI. The enthusiasm can be gauged by the fact that even the Principal was sparing no efforts to bring in runs for his team! Students were outmatched by the veterans who won by a wide margin of runs. Whoever said, "Old is Gold?" Exceeding the expectations, the evening brought a deluge of goodness. Item after item presented by the teachers revealed the talent our staff have in them. Many melodies, many dancing steps and a long line of other entertaining items brought about a hysteria among students who were simply not prepared to stop tapping their feet. Ear piercing screaming from our students was proof enough that the teachers' efforts at entertaining children have paid dividends! A unique skit by four small students from Guwahati, 'Save Humanity and Save World', mesmerised the audience and every one sat still to see the sterling performance. The Principal lauded the efforts of all and expressed satisfaction. A huge success, children have already begun to think of the next Childrens' Day in 2015!
