The competition was organized on Tuesday by the zonal office of physical education Pulwama in collaboration with the school.
Various activities are carried out by different departments and schools in the Kashmir valley and the painting competition was part of this initiative.
Speaking to ANI, the Physical Education Officer at Pampore, Mehraj Andrabi Zonal said, “Under the guidance of Pulwama District Administration, we organized a painting competition at Hamdaniya Mission High School of Pampore and we are happy that the students were delighted with this event and the theme of this painting competition was Dandi March and Jallianwala Bagh.”
The students welcomed this initiative from the school and other departments. They made sketches of the national flag, Bhagat Singh and Mahatma Gandhi and other freedom fighters.
“This is the first post-COVID event we attend. I hope this type of program will be held every year as we learn a lot from these activities,” said student Syed Imran.
Principal of the school, Nisar Ahmad, said, “This completion aims to tell the students about the importance of the national flag and these types of activities are then chained through which the students connect with their nation. This will surely motivate them.
In Pulwama, the campaign has gained momentum as students, in addition to actively participating in essay, painting and singing competitions, also participate in Tiranga rallies at all educational institutions in the district.
The “Har Ghar Tiranga” program plans to encourage Indians around the world to raise the national flag at home. The goal of the program is to make the relationship with the national flag more personal rather than keeping it formal or institutional.
