The Minister of State for HRD, Sanjay Shamrao Dhotre will be the guest of honor on the occasion. This event is primarily to showcase the spirit of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshth Bharat’ and also to promote the communication & artistic skills of students through various competitions. Further, it also provides a platform to teachers to express their talent in performing and visual arts.
All the 25 regions of KVS are paired with a State different from their own State and also a Country. The students prepare projects/exhibits on the culture, customs, dress, agriculture, industry, economy, climate & topography etc of the State and the Country allotted to them. This gives them an opportunity to understand the Art & Culture of the paired States and the Countries, thus imbibing a mutual respect towards different cultures. The students compete at various levels- Vidyalaya/ Cluster & Region, before getting to this stage.
This mega-event is a broad platform for the students to display their creativity, originality, artistic skills, etc. In this process they overcome many challenges, linguistic and geographical barriers and awaken a strong sense of national pride and widen their horizons with a better cosmopolitan outlook.
