Our theme this year for the 17th Annual Function is Once Upon A Time- Magical Celebration, which enabled us to relive the stories we heard in our childhood from across the world. For as long as we have been able to stand upright and speak, we have told stories. They explained the mysteries of the world.

A splendid blend of dances and drama was incorporated which showcased our fairy tales and fables making us believe that there is no greater time than now to begin to live your dreams. The dances truly ranged across a broad gamut from the Indian legends like Kathputli, Yakshagan, Vikram Betaal, Tandav, Robotic Ghoomar to the International folk tales of Mowgli, Lion King, Snow white and the seven dwarfs, Aaj ka Mahabharat amongst others which truly set the stage on fire. The students also paid a salute to sportswomen like Mary Kom emphasizing the spirit of women power.
The highlights of the show were the shadow dances which refreshed our memories of one of the most cherished Disney princesses – Cinderella. The shadow dance also paid a tribute to legendary Maharashtrian heroes who have been instrumental in shaping Maharashtra. The Qawali and the Sufi performance by the students truly transported all to the world of magical dreams. This year also witnessed for the first time ever an actual Witty Orchestra. The music rendered by the students was hypnotizing and each beat played was flawless.

The Founder Dr. Vinay Jain also motivated and encouraged the students and parents with his words of zeal and enthusiasm. It was a memorable day for some of our students who had excelled in sports, music and fine arts at the State and the National level Competitions as they were felicitated and honoured by the Founder, Dr. Vinay Jain. He aptly said, “The Annual day brings a beautiful climax to the various enriching events held throughout the year. It is a ceremony to celebrate the culmination of a learning session.

Year-on-year our students have proven their capabilities and potential at various National and International platforms, by winning accolades and laurels for the school. We will continue our endeavour to fully equip our students to face the challenges of the real world.”
Among the most acknowledged show was the UV which showcased yet another mythical story of Aladdin and Jasmine and our fabled superheroes where the characters make us believe in ourselves even when others doubt and discourage you.  The UV act was one of the most magical acts, weaving its spell through a multitude of props and visual tricks. 
The finale was a never seen before performance of Tron and Chroma which was rendered vibrantly by the students. The audience was left thunderstruck with the magnitude of the energy and skills which were displayed by our very own Witty students. With this, it was the curtain call for this year’s celebration with the message to each one that the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. You can make your dreams come true if you put in the effort and make a reasonable plan. All you have to do is know what you want and take baby steps to be on your path to success.
