The wall has become a testament to a thoughtful expression of what freedom means to our students,’ adding, “At BHIS we believe that an open and encouraging environment helps students to articulate their thoughts, creativity, and imagination at its best. It is our endeavour to teach children ‘how to think’ v/s ‘what to think’. We are proud of how wonderfully the students have expressed themselves.”

Aarika Gandhi, a grade 9 student, said, “This art initiative is close to my heart as this will forever stay on the walls of my school. It was a great learning experience to paint on such a large canvas with my peers. A big thank you to my school and teachers for believing in us and for offering us a unique way to showcase our love for our nation.”
