Thursday Assembly - Poetry in Music

25 Jan 2018

The first Thursday assembly of 2018 was indeed very special. The parents of class VT were invited to watch their children perform. The theme chosen by VT was ‘A Tribute to Poetry.’ The children  decided to share poetry in the form of songs. Two famous songs with beautiful lyrics were sung by the class as they felt the words resonated with audiences as much today as when they were first written. The English song chosen was Bob Dylan’s ‘Blowing in the Wind’ and the Urdu song was Allama Iqbal’s ‘Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua.’ Children held electric candles as they sang these classic songs. The message was loud and clear: poetry is a powerful and 'instructional tool' that reaches out to people of all ages. It is, as VT said, ' a way to express individual and collective thoughts and emotions.
