Bandhan: A Tie that Frees

Students celebrated India’s 67th Independence Day with underprivileged during Bandhan, organised by the student-run Net Impact club. Continuing this annual tradition, the ISB community hosted 380 children from Kare School, Teach for India, Sphoorti, Ashray Akruti, Don Bosco Navajeevan and Devnar School for Blind.
The campus came alive with fun and laughter as the children participated in various team-building games. While activities such as the arts workshop challenged the creativity of the children, the dance workshop instilled them with joy as they danced without inhibitions to some popular songs. Assignments and deadlines were forgotten for a day as students played along - singing, dancing, playing and clicking pictures  with the children.
The highlight of the day was the cultural evening where the different school groups performed skit, dance and sang patriotic songs. A student from the Kare School delivered a speech, in which she urged the society to promote education.
All the fun and laughter did not hide the true purpose of Bandhan, which is “empowerment through education.” As a teacher from Kare School recounted, “We come to ISB every year with our children for Bandhan. It has brought aspiration and hopes into these children, motivated them to rise through their challenges and achieve success through education. Many of my students aspire to be at ISB someday.”
