“India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only…” Mark Twain is believed to have recited these wonderful thoughts on India.
Much in adherence to the aforementioned, our Young Manchesterians who remain the undeniable epitome of hope and promise of this galloping nation, lived up to the entirety of this momentous occurrence of the 73rd Independence Day Celebrations, at the Manchester International School today!!
