    How to celebrate Independence Day online - a review of an unforgettable moment.

    My son Murtaza Kuwakhedawala has been studying in Mohammediya H. S. School, Rampura for last 14 years. He is in class XI. Every year the school celebrates Independence Day in the school premises and students are allowed to attend the function.

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the school administration has decided to celebrate the 74th Independence Day Virtually and all the parents are also invited to be a witness of the celebration. I got the link of the YouTube streaming link on 14th August 2020 for being a part of the online celebration of Independence Day.

    All the family members were excited and got up early in the morning of 15th August 2020. We were ready to watch the function and kept our eye on the smart LED before 15 minutes. We have also shared the link to our relatives since we were told that there would be a surprise for us on 15 August.

    On sharp 8 AM, the live stream started. The principal of the school hoisted the flag and the school staff started Jan Gan Man. After the flag hoisting and Nation Anthem, the principal of the school delivered a speech. He mentioned the freedom struggle of India and after that, he stated about Covid-19 pandemic. He requested all the students and parents to wear a mask at public places and always be at home and safe. He also mentioned about the online classes which have been started from 10 of July. He provided some important tips about online classes. We were impressed and came to know about the hard work of the teachers to start online classes.

    After the speech of principal, the list and photos of the students were shown on the screen that scored more than 75% Marks in the board examination. It was a proud movement for us as the photo of Murtaza was also shown on the screen as he has scored 92% in the high school board examination.

    After that, the dances of 5 students were presented and every student performed very nicely on the patriotic songs. Two students were awarded as the first and second prizes and other students were awarded by consolation prizes.

    In the next sequence, the paintings on different topics were displayed which were drawn by the selected students for this occasion. The topics of the painting were the national freedom struggle, Covid-19 pandemic, Stay home- stay safe and environmental issue.

    The principal was seen on the screen with a smile and announced that now we are going to declare the best student of the year award as usual. My son Murtaza was awarded as the best student of the year for his performance in the board exam, and participated at state level T.T. competition. We were excited. Tears were flowing from the eyes of my wife and Murtaza. It was a pleasant and proud movement for us.

    At last, the vice principal delivered the thanksgiving speech and ended the programme.

    The celebrationof the 74th Independence day with students, parents and teachers itself is one ofits kind and being able towatch our children get awards for various activities and also being selected as the best student of the year is a proud moment not only for the student but for their parents and relatives watching them take award. The function, narration of the event and the overall organisation of the event is good.

    This time it is very different for every school and college to celebrate the Independence day, and our author has taken the lead in giving the best narration on that line.

    A good sketch presented by the author about celebrating the Independence day in school in online mode. Various activities were conducted which make the function as vibrant as it used to be in physical mode.

    It is indeed an honour for the parents to hear the school praising the pupils after achievement in the scores of the board exam. This is a normal tendency but if the so praised child is their own children, none will happier than the parents themselves. An emotion-filled write up is presented by the author for the Independence day celebration.

    One more aspect is, it was also visualized by the relatives. Usually, if we had celebrated without the pandemic issue then relatives would never come to schools to attend this function. The programmes were well expressed to bring smiles on the viewers face.
