Being the second online event of this year, we took things a little forward and more spontaneous with an Independence Day trivia to mark India’s 73rd anniversary of achieving Independence. Students from two teams Yin and Yang competed in 5 unique rounds spread across 3 levels. Titled “Independence movements and the Dominion era”, the quiz focused on a range of Independence movements that reminisced the sacrifices of millions of fellow Indians that these movements were made up of and those that steered India through the Dominion era. Team Yin outperformed Yang 267-158 points starting off a year-long contest full of competitive spirit and energetic participation.
Like everything else this year, Gokulashtami day events were held online, giving both the students and the teachers a first experience.

Though remotely held, the event brought students’ ideas and performances brought everybody closer to one another.
