Teacher’s Day was celebrated with great fervour on the Fort. For the past two years, this celebration had been relegated to the online mode for the pandemic necessitated it. So this year saw heightened enthusiasm on both sides- the teacher and the taught. The excitement levels surged through the day. Students invited the teachers to the cultural programme, had light-hearted talks with them and not only greeted them but bent their heads in obeisance as they passed by them. The faculty enjoyed the special nihari served in the Mess with the accompaniment of songs and reverent speeches. After nihari, Fresher’s Day was held and an early lunch was served. In the evening, the students put up a wonderful cultural programme. Dance, music and lovely presentations by the students kept the teachers deeply engrossed and sent them into splits of laughter quite frequently. It was a true expression of the profound relationship between the teacher and the taught in the environs of boarding school life.
