Felicitate Prospective First Millennium Voters On Independence Day, Suggests CBSE

New Delhi:  Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today issued a circular for all its affiliated schools regarding arrangements for 70th Independence Day celebrations. While there are a number of ways listed in which schools can celebrate the day, what really catches attention is the emphasis on prospective first millennium voters. The circular not only says to identify such students and educate about the struggle for independence and democracy abut also felicitate them as prospective millennium voters. 

The circular reads "Schools in India may also orient eligible students born in the millennium year 2000, if any, about the importance of voting, getting Voter IDs from the office of Election Commission, being responsible citizens by casting their vote etc. Schools may also felicitate them as prospective first millennium voters."

Students born in the year 2000, the cusp of the millennium, would be 18 years of age next year which is the legal age for casting vote in India. The initiative to educate and encourage students while still in school is commendable. The innovative way to celebrate democracy will surely inspire students to get enrolled as voters. 

Other than the education on democracy and voting, CBSE has listed some other activities which schools can conduct on August 15 for 70th Independence Day celebration. These activities include:
  • Cleanliness Drive under Sawchch Bharat Programme /Community Service
  • Sports Competition (including indigenous sports)
  • Cultural Programme/Music/Dance/One act play
  • Plantation drive/sensitization programs on environment/conservation of water
