“Every time one steps on to the pitch, all the troubles vanish away, since the only thing that matters on the field, is the beautiful game.” A beautiful visage of today’s sports is ‘Football’ where in the children and parents indulge themselves completely. One such event was witnessed by the students of NK Bagrodia Public School on 19th August 2017 at Major Dhyan Chand Stadium, India Gate, New Delhi. The Curtain Raiser of U-17 World Cup was presided over by the Honorable Minister of State For Youth Affairs And Sports, Govt. Of India and Shri S.K. Bhattacharya who is the president of the Action Committee.
The event commenced with an invocation song in order to welcome the twenty four countries who are a part of this great event followed by the felicitation of the Chief Guest and other dignitaries. The audience was addressed by our chief guest and Shri S.K. Bhattacharya who gave valuable opinions and ideas about the event. The event was further trailed by the March Past by various elite schools of Delhi hoisting the flags of the nations to honor their presence. The school bands further glorified the event with their magnificent performance to charm patrons. The most mesmerizing episode of the entire day was the time of cultural event when the various schools came forth and showcased their talent to entice the audience. The cultural programme was initiated by Mount Abu School who portrayed a culmination of Yoga and Basketball to exhibit the importance of both. It was coordinated well with the classical dance performance by ASN International School who brought the whole diversity into a unified whole. A football run through on songs was devised by ITL Public School which was again exciting. ‘Skipping’- an age old method to stay fit and healthy was revived by the Bal Bharti Public School and last but not the least NK Bagrodia Public School brought the whole culmination of dancing on the tune of self composed song with footballs flying in air to represent the glory the event was witnessing. In the end, a vote of thanks by the elite guests and chanting of our national anthem as a symbolic reference to give a salute to our nation India and being able to stand forth to conduct such events. It was an amazing and mesmerizing event hosted and organized.
