Stricter vigilance at border check post
Subdivisional officer Manish Kumar on Wednesday chaired a meeting in Koderma and asked officials to follow the state government’s guidelines to the letter at the interstate Bagitand check post on the Ranchi-Patna highway. Kumar directed officials to keep a close eye on those entering Jharkhand and hand out pamphlets with the dos and don’ts of home quarantine. He said instructions should be given to those travelling to the state to remain in home quarantine for 14 days, besides applying a “home quarantine” stamp on their hands.
The Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth (SPIC MACAY) has selected Kavya Jha, a student of Class 11 of Delhi Public School (DPS), Bokaro, to volunteer for the organisation at a national level programme.
An online global orientation programme on the theme, “Explore yourself with the core values of Indian traditions and culture’’, involving institutions from Jharkhand, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab and Nagaland, was held on September 4. DPS Bokaro was chosen to represent the state at the event, which was streamed live on YouTube. The highlight of the programme was the depiction of Ramayana using the classical dance form, Koodiyattam. Based on the performance in the live session, Kavya was offered an opportunity to volunteer to be a part of the SPIC MACAY team at the national-level programme to be held later.
DPS Bokaro principal A.S. Gangwar said the school not only provides its students an opportunity and environment to learn, but also gives them a platform to exhibit their cultural talent.
