We at Spurthy, spare no effort to highlight the significance of quite a few important festivals through encouraging the students actively not only to organize and participate in them but also lending a best possible hand by the Staff and Management members in making the same a GRAND GALA occasion serving the purpose of fun and to-getherness, as well as educative in terms of understanding the background significance of the festivals.
A few of them celebrated at SPURTHY are listed below.
It is a national festival marking the FREEDOM from Slavery , due to the improper seizure of our nation – INDIA by the British Empire in the name Trade for quite a long period (about 3 centuries). The significant day is AUGUST 15th 1947.
Hence, every 15th day of August is celebrated with a patriotic fervour by the Students & Staff at Spurthy, by hoisting the Indian national Flag and a formal function. It also helps the Students, who were not born during the year 1947, understand the sacrifices and hardships of our INDIAN FREEDOM FIGHTERS.
It is dedicated to our FATHER OF THE NATION, beloved Mohandas KaramChand Gandhi who became MAHATMA, due to his unique bloodless approach of fighting against the monarchs – the British, who was not only ruling our nation but also looted our country’s wealth in the process.
Spurthy does not forget the Mahatma, and honours suitably with appropriate celebration and regard to the great soul.
Karnataka Rajyotsava or Kannada Day, also known as Karnataka Formation Day or Karnataka Day, is celebrated on 1 November of every year. This was the day in 1956 when all the Kannada language-speaking regions of South India were merged to form the state of Karnataka. It is marked by the announcement and presentation of the honours list for Rajyotsava Awards by the Government of Karnataka, hoisting of the official Karnataka flag with an address from the Chief Minister and Governor of the state along with community festivals, orchestra, Kannada book releases and concerts. Hence, without doubt, It is a celebration day at SPURTHY too.
