National Unity Day is celebrated on 31st October every year as annual commemoration of the birthday of the Iron Man of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, one of the founding leaders of Republic of India. The intent is to pay tribute to Vallabhbhai Patel, who was instrumental in keeping India united.
At Sarala Birla Public School, Ranchi, we observed National Unity Day with great enthusiasm. A Special Assembly was organised wherein the students were reminded of the great contributions made by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The students and the staff of the school together took an oath of Unity and pledged to remain united. Students participated in the ‘Run for Unity’ organised to pay tribute to the great leader who had united 565 self-governing princely states of India in 1947 and laid foundation of the Indian Republic.
