30th of March was a significant day in the academic year 2023-24, when the Grade XII students presented their Form Morning, on the life of 'Janata Raja, Chhatrapati Shivaji.' It was the last Form Morning of their student life in TKS, and the atmosphere was fraught with nostalgia and reminiscences.
Shivaji is a hero worshiped in India for his remarkable valor and patriotism; and under his rule, the Marathas fought gallantly against the dreaded Mughals, powerful Afghans and indomitable British, challenging their power at every bend. He was a leader who was able to instill the love for freedom in his men, who were deeply committed to him and were ready to die for his cause. Enacting his life, the students were moved by the values of complete dedication and reverence for the Motherland.
Through the course of their rehearsals, they were constantly reminded about the skills of leadership, management, political diplomacy and military administration of the great hero, who is still revered and loved, even so many centuries after his death. The enactment of the play was enhanced by the brilliant stage props and decorations, the rousing tunes of the inspirational songs, and the very graceful moves of the dances. The entire performance was nothing less than electrifying, and the audience was deeply moved by the performance. It was a fitting finale indeed for the Grade XII students, which will be remembered with pride and admiration by both the performers, and the audience alike.
