There are many Indians who are remembered for their valuable contributions towards the progress of society and mankind. They have influenced and inspired many people and we learn many lessons from their lives, and playing a role on their lifestyle is much more interesting than reading. On 31st of January, we, the class 5 students of DPS NORTH KOLKATA got the opportunity to arrange a role-play on some great Indians as a part of our SST Curriculum. Different students of our class were given different roles to play. We were asked to dress up like those great people and come to school and act like them.

I was given the role of Mahatma Gandhi. I prepared a speech on him and then collected things for my costume in order to dress-up like The Father of the Nation. In my school, few of my teachers helped me to dress up before the act. The other students have also come well prepared and in proper costumes. One girl dressed like Rani Lakshmi Bai, another student dressed like Pandit Ravi Shankar and another student as Rabindranath Tagore. Many others were also there performing other roles. In my speech I mentioned Mahatma Gandhi’s life, activities, principles and his worldwide famous cry that is “Do or Die”.  This was how I played a role of the Great Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi.
