With courage we dare to take risk, gain
the strength to be compassionate and have the wisdom to be
humble. "Courage is the foundation of integrity and this

St. Xavier's Collegiate School in association with TTIS
presented Rangotsav '14 - The festival of colours. 'Rangotsav',
an interschool Hindi Cultural Fest for classes 11 and 12 was
conducted in our national language - 'Hindi'. In Sanmarg,
Chapte Chapte and Young Metro, this fest was highly
appreciated. Rangotsav is all about promoting our national
language. The fest was well organized and the participants
had an awesome time. It was also a platform for the reunion
of Hindi teachers in the city.
This year we had eight events altogether, which are Eastern
music, creative writing, graffiti, antakshari,
half-a-minute, debate, photography and drama.
About eleven schools had participated in this competition -
Modern High School for Girls, La Martinere for Girls, Ashok
Hall, Calcutta Girls School, Don Bosco Park Circus, DPS
Megacity, Saifee Hall, The Heritage School, The Assembly of
God Church School, St. Thomas Boy's School and St. Thomas
We have two rolling trophies. First for the winners - 'The
Late Mr. R. K. Rai Memorial Trophy' (to commemorate the
contribution made by our respected and beloved Hindi
teacher) and secondly 'The late Sunny Sethi Memorial Trophy'
(in memory of our ex-student Sunny Sethi, 2002 ICSE batch).
The winner of Rangotsav 2014 was 'Modern High School for
Girls' followed by 'Calcutta Girls' as first runners up and
DPS Megacity as the second runners up.
It has been a day of splendid performance. Inspite of
several other fests being held simultaneously, a large
number of boys and girls from many of the top schools of the
city has come to add colour and vigour to this fest and we
are happy about it.
Rangotsav is a great fest that provides wonderful
opportunities for young people to grow and develop their
skills and talents. I invoke God's blessings on the staff,
students and the organisation for the success of Rangotsav.
