“It is extremely difficult to find a parallel to this wonderful personality, Mira, a saint, a philosopher, a poet and a sage. She was a versatile genius and a magnanimous soul. Her life has a singular charm, with extraordinary beauty and marvel.” - Swami Sivananda
The Modern School, Ghaziabad , celebrated its Annual Day Function showcasing ‘MIRA’ on Saturday, 11th December, 2021 amidst great splendour, mirth and zest.

Mrs Mehra welcomed the guests and the gathering and shared the school’s achievements in her comprehensive & detailed Annual Report of the year 2021. Meritorious students were given prizes for excellence in Performing Arts, General proficiency and Co-curricular activities.
The Cultural Programme on ‘MIRA’ comprised of a Welcome Song, Introduction of the character Mira, dance performances, followed by the song- Payo Ji Maine beautifully sung by our students. The most popular songs of Mirabai speak of her unflinching love for Lord Krishna, attempts to poison her, the miraculous escape and her blissful merging with God. The dance performance on the song Vrandavan was full of devotion as the vibrantly clad students with their energetic foot tapping moves filled the air with the love portraying how Mira worshiped Lord Krishna in the form of the divine mountain-lifter ‘Giridhari’. The Annual Day function witnessed an assortment of dazzling musical renditions.
Dr Amit Gupta emphasised on the reality of life, how things that once were a luxury changed during the passage of time. Throughout time, with technology, higher learning, and new inventions have a tendency to change. Our roads, ways of life, and communities have changed over time. A small town that may have been productive may not be now because of the changes. From our studies we have learned about how farms, buildings, and transportation have changed into forgotten history. He also stated that he is hopeful and looking forward for the school to reach great heights in future. He further added that there will be various sports academies for the students in the coming months. He concluded by congratulating the Principal, teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication and carving a niche for themselves.
