ABHILASHA 2021was organised on November 2, to celebrate the tween years and to give a creative direction to the youthful energy that this age group possesses. Like the previous editions had involved students of classes VI – VIII. This year's theme was ‘Chasing Happiness’.
As always Since the fest was virtual, we were fortunate to involve students from other countries like Greece, Nepal, Ukraine & Russia too and make it more participatory. 23 schools had participated including the host where 4 were international schools, 10 national schools and 9 regional schools.
The opening ceremony had some wonderfully choreographed dances by the students of the organising school followed by an address of Ma'am Meena Kak, Director,Lakshmipat Singhania Academy. Since this fest was a non-competitive one, she very rightly said, “You do not need to compete with others. When you compete with your own self, you come out with the best." While narrating an incident of the famous violinist Itzhak Perlman, Ma'am Kak also pointed out that sometimes in life when we run out of certain things, we should not stop there. Instead we must use things that are with us and create a new way of living. She also praised the students all over the world in the way they have bravely fought the pandemic.
The chief guest of the evnt was Dr. Jitendra Nagpal, Senior Consultant Psychiatrist and incharge, Institute of Mental Health & Life skills promotion, Moolchanch, New Delhi. He is also the Programme Director of Expressions India. The vote of thanks was delivered by the school's Vice Principal Ma'am Jaya Misra.
Abhilasha 2021 had 5 planned events and one surprise detox event for the participants.
Abhilasha in Hindi means 'desire' was perfectly able to quench the thirst of the young souls who had participated across the globe. This event brought in harmony across countries and once again proved that happiness has nothing to do with colour or language.
