AKSIPS 45 Presents a Thematic play ‘Being Human – Ek Nazariya’
The students of classes VI to X from AKSIPS 45 were spectacular in their performance when God and the five elements of life (Fire, Earth, Water, Air and Sky) descended onstage in The Tagore Theatre on Thursday, the October 27, 2016 as part of their Annual Day celebration. The captivating display of acting, singing and dancing prowess had the parents glued to their seats for an hour and half long presentation of the thematic play ‘Being Human – Ek Nazariya’.
The event commenced with lighting the ceremonial lamp by Dr. N.S.Manhas, Programme Head, Doordarshan, Chandigarh who graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. Honorable Executive Director, AKSIPS group of schools, Mr. Jasdeep Kalra extended a warm welcome. The play opened in a very dramatic setup where God was shown busy creating his master piece the Human Being. The audience was spell bound while looking at the five elements entering the stage in their glittering attires to bless the Human Being with their strong powers. Enveloped in immeasurable compassion and profound belief the Human started the journey in search of joy and peace but soon found himself trapped in the world of hell, hunger, greed, hatred and insatiable desire of empowering himself.
The play was divided into five scenes wherein the human conflicts and clashes at various levels i.e. family, society, country and international were beautifully presented by the budding actors of AKSIPS 45. The scintillating ‘Elements’ dances, the melodious choir and bedazzling grand finale were the highlights of the evening. The audience was motivated to ponder upon incorporating the positive qualities of the elements in their character to transform from ‘Human Being’ to ‘Being Human’
Ms. Harpreet Kaur, Principal, read the annual report highlighting various achievements of the school. She conveyed that the concept 'Being Human – Ek Nazriya' comes from the need of the hour to make a human revolution – the need to change the hearts – change the minds – by having the right perception – the need to reflect on our responsibility, on our actions, on our words and become aware of who and how someone can get affected with those- The need to break away from being oblivious to others' well-being in body or mind. The need to connect with others and give up passive approach of doing no real good or bad. The need to acknowledge, believe and respect the other person and have the ability to create a peaceful environment by 'reversal of perspectives', that is to see from the other persons perspective and there by expand friendship and end war – Creating hope for humanity. The show came to a close with a vote of thanks by Dr. B.N.S. Walia, Chairman, National Educational Development Trust.
