It was the year 1967 when
the first National Group Song Competition of patriotic songs was
held. Ever since then such competitions have become an
annual feature. In fact this inspirational annual competition
generating patriotic fervor has come to provide a measure of
Bharat Vikas Parishad’s popularity and identity among the
student community, their family members and the teachers.
We had the privilege of
having Presidents like Dr. Zakir Hussain, Gyani Zail Singh and
Shri Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy to preside over the annual National
Group Song Competitions.
The competitions are held for students from class VIth to XIIth
at Branch, Prant, Region and All India levels. In the competition at the
national level, a team from each Region sings one patriotic song in Hindi from "Chetna Ke Swar" and a regional language
and the best teams are awarded prizes.
Every year over 5 lakh students from about
50,000 schools participate in this programme
the branch level.
