1. Anvi Babanagar, 7 BIn 2047 we will celebrate 100 years of independence, freedom and tranquillity. As I wrote the letter, I felt the pride of being an Indian, surging in me. The vision for India 2047 made me proud and happy. It increased my curiosity about the future of our country.
2. Nabarun Amith, 7 BI was excited to write the letter on ‘Vision for India 2047’. Writing a handwritten letter in an inland letter was a unique experience. Inserting the letter in a mailbox was wonderful. It was miles apart from technology. I hope to get many such opportunities in future.
3. Neel Anand 7 BBefore writing the letter, I had no clue about the economic status of the country. I did not know how much potential our motherland had, to become a hub of cultural diversity, liberty and freedom. Having written the letter, I became aware of the intensity of the struggle for freedom that our brethren underwent. India fought tooth and nail to free herself from foreign invasions for hundreds of years. Due to efficient freedom fighters political leaders, and social activists, India freed herself from the shackles of slavery, and invasions and has now emerged as one of the fastest-growing economies and developed countries in the world.
4. Samarth Hegde, 7 DI enjoyed writing the letter. I envisioned how India would be in 2047 and how the environment would be treated then. As I was writing the letter, I was inspired to do be proactive in doing something substantial for my country.
The school also received a letter of appreciation from the Dept of Posts and Telegraph for submitting a maximum number of entries from one school.
