December 20, 2015 was a day filled with great zeal and enthusiasm for the senior section of BKBCE. This day witnessed the Day II of the Annual Day celebrations, meant for and presented by the senior section (classes IX to XII). Birlites were privileged to have Mr Rajendra Pal Devgan, Head Master of YPS, Mohali (Punjab) as the Chief Guest for the day. All the teachers and students contributed in making this Annual Day a memorable and successful event.
The day began with the traditional Lamp Lightning Ceremony as a tribute to Maa Saraswati-The Goddess of Knowledge. This auspicious ceremony was conducted by our Chief Guest and other dignitaries, followed by the prayer song. Next, we had the pride of our school, ‘The school song’ sung by the melodious choir group. Birlites who are well trained in classical music, showcased their exceptional talent on the stage in a befitting manner.
The Principal, Dr Saibal Kumar Sanyal then welcomed guests with a warm speech. English Play, directed by Mr. Parnab Mukherjee, was the highlight of the day. It brought to light, the harsh realities of today’s world, keeping the central theme as that of Mahabharata. All the young achievers of the BKBCE were then awarded for their exceptional talent in diverse fields. Different houses were awarded for winning Inter House Tournaments round the year. The best house to win the overall Cock House Trophy was bagged by the Salil House. Everyone’s beloved Sir C. Korachan Joseph (English Department) was given the Best Teacher’s Award and Mr Ashok Lole (Accounts Department) was awarded for his contribution in the Non Academic Section.
‘Breves’ the rock band left the audience mesmerized with their sensational performance, the musical notes of which lingered onto the minds and souls of all for a long time. Indian culture was showcased in a paramount manner by the Birlites. The folk dancers danced gracefully to the tunes of different cultures.
The Hindi drama entitled ‘Bhatkan’ very well explained the do’s and dont’s for today’s youth, keeping in mind the dilemma faced by the parents. ‘Mime’, which is a special play in which the characters give a meaningful message without speaking, only with the help of actions, was performed by the Birlites in a very wonderful manner. It left audience speechless. However, Hip Hop dance was the show stopper and was highly praised by the audience. The Cultural Fest ended up with the human pyramids, very gracefully and effortlessly performed by the Birlites. This was followed by the Chief Guest’s address. As all good things come to an end and so did this. The Annual Day ended with the vote of thanks by the School Captain – Master Vignesh Shanbhag.
