India achieved independence from British rule seven decades back and with each passing decade the people of this country have struggled to protect the freedom our leaders fought for and build a nation they envisioned. Any man who stands for progress, has to criticise, disbelieve and challenge every item of the old faith. And hence it’s very important to make the future builders of our nation to talk about their vision about their contribution to the nation building. Vydehi School of Excellence conducted an Essay Writing Competition on the topic “INDIA @70 AND YOUR CONTRIBUTION” on 20th January, 2018 where the students of Grades 5 to 11 participated and made the event be a huge success. VSE feels proud of its endeavours for the future building.
