At the excursion, learners of Apeejay School, Noida explored India’s cultural heritage and Independence movement



India, with its vibrant cultural heritage and profound history, stands as a testament to the struggles and achievements of its people. In an effort to imbibe this rich legacy into the minds of the young generation, Apeejay School, Noida recently organised an educational trip to the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya. The excursion aimed to provide students of classes 6, 7, and 8 with a deeper understanding of India’s independence movement and its cultural significance.

To begin the enlightening journey of exploration and discovery, the students accompanied by their teachers, gathered at the school gate and boarded the vehicles, brimming with anticipation for the day ahead. To ensure their energy levels remained high, refreshments were provided to them during the journey.

After a picturesque drive, the group arrived at their destination, the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya. Their first stop was the Nehru Museum, an integral part of the Sangrahalaya. The museum, nestled within the grand Nehru Memorial building, showcased artefacts and exhibits that transported the students back in time. The magnificent structure steeped in history, standing tall for 90 years.

At the museum, the students had the opportunity to explore various galleries, each offering a unique perspective on India’s journey towards independence. They marvelled at the gallery depicting the making of the Indian Constitution, where they learned about the visionaries and revolutionaries who contributed to its formation. Additionally, the students delved into the lives of those who shaped the Indian Constitution and witnessed the country’s transformation into a republic.

Ascending to the first floor of the museum, the students were transported to a time marked by great challenges and immense bravery. Here, they learned about the partition of India in 1947, gaining a deeper understanding of the historical events that led to the birth of two independent nations. As they walked through the corridors, they caught glimpses of Jawaharlal Nehru’s study room, living room, bedroom, and gallery, each filled with artefacts and mementos that once belonged to the influential leader.

Enthralled by the multitude of amendments made to the Indian Constitution, the students were inspired to delve further into the details of the independence movement. The field trip, a true amalgamation of education and experience, left an indelible impression on their young minds. The students departed the museum with a newfound appreciation for India’s rich cultural heritage, fully aware of the sacrifices made by countless individuals in their pursuit of freedom.

While sharing her experience, Chhavi Verma, a student of Class 8 A expressed, “My visit to the Pradhanmantri Sangralaya was an exceedingly delightful and captivating experience. The teachers extended exceptional assistance to us, providing insightful guidance as we explored the political history associated with this museum. Upon stepping foot into the Pradhanmantri Sangralaya, my eyes were greeted with a myriad of exhibits showcasing historical artifacts intricately linked to the esteemed Prime Ministers, accompanied by an abundance of interactive displays. As I ventured further, I encountered a meticulously arranged chronological exhibition, narrating the evolution of Prime Ministers in India over time. Additionally, I was profoundly moved by the awe-inspiring accounts of Prime Ministers who played pivotal roles in shaping the destiny of our nation.”

Spriha Das, another student of class 8 A said, “The educational tour proved to be quite enriching. The museum showcased the legacy of Indian Prime Ministers and the history of the freedom struggle since independence. The tour began at the reception, where the students were divided into small groups. They started the museum tour in Building no-2, which featured a Parichay room introducing the Prime Ministers of India. The students gained a deeper understanding of the freedom, prosperity, and growth histories of the prime ministers. The museum also offered special shows like Bhavishya ki jhalkiyan, Time machine, Light and sound show, and Lal Qile ki prachir se. Moving to Building-1, the students explored the Toshakhana Zone, which displayed treasures gifted to Nehru, Manmohan Singh, Vajpayee, Narendra Modi, and other dignitaries by heads of states from across the globe.”
