MRV Anandvan 2013-14
Primary Secondary Annual Day - 31st January, 2014
In his book 'The Story of My Experiments with Truth' Mahatma Gandhi had said, "Be the change that you wish to see in the world."
This was precisely the theme of Anandvan 2014. The talented and reflective students of MRV showed this change by bringing the character of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi alive. They enacted various roles of the legendary freedom
fighter: a coach, a teacher, a cook and even a compounder of a village dispensary. These roles actually stood for the different philosophies of the Great Legend and were set in a present day school scenario.
The event was a showcase of drama, music and dance beautifully woven with the theme, supported by a live choir, wherein the students displayed their musical edge on vocals and instruments too. Anandvan reflected a two month learning process where the students managed the production, props and audio visuals under the guidance of MRV's distinguished teachers. It was a platform where the students, got an opportunity to witness the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi and imbibe his ideals.
This year's Anandvan aroused the audiences' patriotic spirit and conveyed an enduring message to one and all.
Pre-Primary Annual Day - 18th December, 2013
The curtains for one of the most awaited events at MET Rishikul Vidyalaya,
Anandvan opened to an instrumental performance of the National Anthem played
by MRV's talented Sr. Kg. musicians. A breathtakingly melodious Qawwali
dedicated to Saint Sai Baba sung by young student vocalists and a classical
invocation dance left the audience spellbound. The children showcased their
acting skills by enacting interesting anecdotes in their daily lives at
school. Students of each class danced to songs sung live by the student
choir and put forth a hilarious musical dramatisation in Sanskrit on the
story of the Rakshas Bhasmasur. They also put up the skit 'Modern Cindrella
- Twist in the Tale', which had the audience in splits.
Eventually, the evening progressed to its peak with the beautifully
portrayed 'Durga dance' and concluded with the Christmas finale, staying in
sync with the spirit of the season.
