A cultural extravaganza in honour of late Smt Rajeshwari Paul

On the occasion of Smt Paul’s 98th birth anniversary, Apeejay Pitampura students paid a tribute to the “first lady” through exquisite dance and music performances



Students at Apeejay School, Pitampura paid an artistic tribute to Smt Rajeshwari Paul on her 98th birth anniversary. Late Smt Paul was the wife of Apeejay’s founder chairman late Dr Stya Paul and mother of Mrs Sushma Paul Berlia, co-promoted and president, Apeejay Stya & Svran Group.

Smt Paul was passionate about art. In her memory, Apeejay Pitampura organised ‘Rajeshwari Kala Utsav’ at the school premises marked by musical renditions, classical dance performances, and an art exhibition.

The ceremony began with a special assembly dedicated to “Shree Shakti”, an embodiment of strength, wisdom, and dignity. A vibrant cultural programme under the guidance of the Performing Arts Department followed the ceremonial lighting of the lamp and floral tributes. Students performed a special Sufi dance depicting the message of women empowerment. The audience further enjoyed a wonderful musical presentation by the school orchestra and school choir. Students also performed a Kathak dance.

A heartfelt message by Mrs Sushma Paul Berlia for her mother was also read out at the gathering. An epitome of love and affection, late Smt Paul was a motherly figure who brought faith and hope to the lives of others in the Apeejay family.

Alongside, each class paid a visit to the Art room where students showcased their creativity through brilliant specimens of art. The senior students of the History Department won praise for their powerful presentation of “Dharamshetra”, a role-play of various characters from Mahabharata. The characters, dressed in their regal costumes, shared their perspective in the court of Chitragupta. The celebration reached its crescendo with the rhythmic dhol played by Shaurya Jain, a student of class VI A.

Apeejay Pitampura pledged to promote all forms of art and culture as an essential component of education.

“Rajeshwari Kala Utsav at Apeejay School Pitampura was truly an Utsav. Each child of the school participated in varied performing art activities. There were colours of music, dance, dhol, band theatre on the stage and of course on canvas and paper.”
