Manav Rachna International School (MRIS) – 46 Gurugram hosted Kala Sanyojan 2016, an annual art fest. Keeping in mind the vision and mission of the School which aims at holistic development of the students, Kala Sanyojan this year focused on artistic expression of thoughts and feelings. Since the last three months, all students of the School soaked in the colours of creativity. There were workshops by professional artists and experts that trained students in various art forms like Anatomy of Dots, Use of Jumping Clay, Craft from Waste, Pottery, Assemblage, Jewelry Design, Glass Painting, Installations and many more. The Workshops were open to students of other schools too and as many as 20 schools across Delhi- NCR participated in the event. The results were there for all to see, with Kala Sanyojan culminating on 3rd and 4th of December 2016 with an Exhibition of students’ artistic works.

Arjuna Awardee Raja Randhir Singhji, Former Secretary General IOA & Per016manent Member of International Olympic Committee was the Chief Guest at the opening ceremony along with senior dignitaries from MREI such as Smt Satya Bhalla, Chief Patron, MREI; Dr Amit Bhalla, Vice President, MREI; among others. Parents were also invited to the Exhibition on 3rd and 4th of December to see the work pieces prepared by their children during the art festival. Their presence boosted the confidence of the budding artists tremendously as the young minds were deeply enriched with a kaleidoscopic experience through a plethora of art forms.

Also present on the occasion were Mr Sunny Bansal, Executive Director, MRIS -46 Gurugram; Ms Dhriti Malhotra, Principal, MRIS 46, Gurugram; Ms Mamta Sharma, Princinal, MRIS 14; Mr Sarkar Talwar, Director (Sports), MREI, among others.

What has made the event especially meaningful is the fact that the proceeds from the sale of art works were to be utlised towards the development of Badshahpur Girls Senior Secondary School which has been adopted under the aegis of Dr. O.P. Bhalla Foundation by MRIS-46, Gurugram.
