A special feature of R-Day celebrations at Mantri's was the schoolgirl speeches. It was nice watching the girls step out to make a speech at the gathering. i wonder why we didn't have boys volunteering to speak on the occasion. Anyway, in response to my plea Megha Harinarayanan(D-301),of 3rd std. at PSBB Millennium School(OMR), has shared with us text of her speech.We would be happy to publish speeches by other school girls on our R-Day. Looking forward to their mail.
Meanwhile,here is what Megha (4th from left in the photo)spoke on Gandhiji:
I wish you all a Very Happy Republic Day. I will speak few lines about Gandhiji. Gandhiji was born on 02 October 1869 at Porbandar in Gujarat. He was a Barrister at Law. He worked in South Africa for the Welfare of downtrodden.
He came to India to join the Freedom Movement. He believed in Non-Violence. For his ideals Rabrindranath Tagore called him Mahatma. He gave us freedom from British by using the mighty weapon Non-Violence.
He is the Father of our Nation.
