The programme came to a conclude with a short speech by Director – Dr.Anoop Singh. He highlighted the significance of liberty & independence by comparing a mother with the motherland – where we are born, which gives us a lot & ultimately seeks a promise from all of us to safeguard her borders from external threats & internal disturbances. He also urged that we all should try to understand the true meaning of diversity which showcases the art of thinking independently together. Quoting the example of Lal Bahadur Shastri he urged the children to be a person of firm determination, dedication &a disciplined being & that the youngsters should follow the quote "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
