MATUNGA-MUMBAI, AUGUST 15, 2014: The 68th Independence Day of India was celebrated with great pride at Don Bosco High School, Matunga with the hoisting of the Indian Tricolour by Mrs. and Mr. Gala, the chief guests and parents of S.S.C. topper Mst. Kewal Gala. The Scouts and the Cubs were given the privilege of putting up a skit dedicated the freedom fighters. They witnessed a stirring depiction of the day martyrs Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt threw a bomb in the constituent assembly, and its repercussions that went on to kindle the fire of patriotism in the minds of every Indian.
They were also witness to an entertaining and meaningful dance showcasing secularism and the 'Unity in diversity' that is the strength of our nation. As is the practice, they took the opportunity to felicitate their S.S.C. toppers for bringing glory to their alma mater. Mr. Gala, in his address to the students, thanked the school management and the teachers for their dedication to moulding the personalities of each student. He reminded the students not to run behind marks, but to chase excellence, and that success would most certainly follow. The solemnity and dignity of this memorable day would surely remain in their hearts for a long time to come.
