Following report The Telegraph:

Balangir, Dec. 10: Streets of Balangir wore a rare look as students, teachers and parents took out a procession that showcased India in totality by depicting the nation’s history, culture and tradition.

The spectacular roadshow kicked-off the silver jubilee function of Saraswati Sishu-Vidya-Gnyana Mandir here today.

Students, many of whom were dressed to resemble characters from Indian’s history and mythology, were present in the half-kilometre long procession. Mythological characters such as Lord Rama, Sita, Lord Shiva, Goddess Saraswati walked alongside Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and other legends of history. Some were also dressed like tribals to highlight the lifestyle of India’s indigenous community. Parents of the students, especially mothers, took part in ‘Kalas Yatra’.

Sarat Mahakud, a member of the school’s management committee, said the procession was organised to highlight the real India.

Managing committee vice- Sanatan Thakur said it was an ideal opportunity for the school to exhibit everything Indian.

“We have tried to present a brief history of India’s past and present through this procession,” Thakur said.

The participating students were also very excited. “It served me to know more about India’s history as I prepared myself to dress up as a freedom fighter. I learnt about the many facets of the freedom movement,” said a student who had dressed up to resemble Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

Saraswati Vidya Mandir of Balangir has emerged as a premier high school in the state and has been regularly scoring high in the Council of Higher Secondary Examination.
