Jorhat, Sept. 16: Dipankar Vidyapith, an Assamese-medium school here, will celebrate its silver jubilee with a slew of programmes for the whole year beginning September 19.

The celebration will begin with a colourful cultural procession that draws inspiration from the Puranas to the modern. The school principal said an elephant will lead the procession. The parade will also have a bullock cart and students dressed in the attire described in the Puranas. Trucks will be converted into floats carrying tableaux depicting the culture of Assam.

"There will be a mix of traditional and modern and we would like to go as far back into time as we can," he said.

The next two days will witness a mix of lectures by politicians, educationists, forest man Jadav Payeng, an alumni meet and a cultural programme. For the rest of the year there will be quiz and drawing contests, and debates at the state level. The conclusion will be a cultural function. The venue will shift from the school on the first day to the district library auditorium for the next two days and to JDSA grounds for the contests and closing ceremony.
