Annual Day Celebrations - Day Star School Manali

Day star school, Manali had their annual day celebrations on the 30 September. Handimachal was honored to be a part of this extravaganza by holding a disability awareness stall and a special dance performance by the girls gang of the Kullu Therapy Unit and not to forget, a special guest of honor invitee to our President Dominique Dufau.

It was the first time also, for the children of the Special Education centre to showcase their talent on such an occasion, being on the center stage and in front a huge audience. A fancy dress show was put up with the children being dressed up in local Kullu costume and doing the traditional dance of Natti. We had a Doctor, Bollywood Heros, Twinkle Stars, Politician and even a Sun Flower amongst us for the evening. 

A famous Bollywood dance number “ All is Well ‘’ was then lived up to its truest sense by children for whom, ironically it not ‘’ All is Well’’ ! But that’s what the children gave a message off, to look beyond the limitations, to appreciate and celebrate life’s very little possibility.

The girl gang from Kullu Therapy unit put up a wonderful dance show on the famous song ‘’Aashayee’’. A couple of days of rehearsals and Sophia and Tanvi were ready to showcase their talent to all. It was the first time for them to have got an opportunity to be on center stage and live it up. And we couldn’t come up with any better song then ‘’Aashayein’’ whose English translation goes like this:


The wish to acquire something
Some specific yearnings
Every attempt should have the strength
To rend seas asunder

Rip the storms
And seize your destination
Let your heart’s desires blossom
And your hopes smile
Now nothing is difficult
Nothing at all

Let your happiness soar
And take you with it
To paradise
Where your every wish is fulfilled
Let your heart’s desires blossom
And your hopes smile
Now nothing is difficult
Nothing at all!




Thanks, Shruti, for this article and thanks to all of you for your performance and dedication to this cause!
