Sainik Colony Progressive Group (SCPG) organizes an event in our colony on every Republic day. This year, too, they had lined up a long list of activities AND items to instill some degree of pride in one’s nation and to create fellow feelings among the residents of the colony.
Patriotic songs were played, flautists and drummers also showed their skills. A highlight was the QUIZ session in which questions were thrown to an open house. This was truly informative as the questions asked tested our essential knowledge about our republic. “Who was the first Param Veer Chakra awardee?” (Captain Somnath Sharma), “At which place is our currency printed?” (Nasik), “How many fundamental duties are mentioned for a citizen in our constitution?” (11), “How many volumes comprises our Indian constitution?” (24), “Who is the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha? (Vice President) were some of the questions posed and the ones who answered correctly were duly rewarded.
There were other events too – Musical chair for the ladies, and normal and lemon races for different age groups. My son earned a bronze medal in the race in the (10-12) age group.
A small girl in Indian tri color swayed to the beats of the popular Bollywood song “Chitiya kaliya be …”. Prizes were given out with appreciative words and finally everyone went home with a food packet (sweets and snacks) in hand. All in all an earnest effort by members of SCPG.

  • Subhajit Ghosh: Your wish has been granted, and look how! Even NDA possibly didn't dream of this huge victory. Let's hope they deliver, and take the nation forward.
