Indian School Darsait organized the first ever Online Solo Singing Competition, MELODY VIBES for the Parents from Thursday, 18 June to Tuesday, 23 June 2020 from 7 pm to 9 pm.

The event was inaugurated on the first day (18 June 2020) by Mr. Jaikish Pavithran, President, School Management Committee.

The event which went on for five days had as many as 91 participants out of 138 parents registered, compete spiritedly in this mega event. Google Meet was chosen to conduct the event and entry to the platform was through the school domain in order to assure smooth conduct. Maximum participation and audience attendance was assured through live streaming on Google Meet, YouTube and Facebook and hence, every effort was made to ensure that the programme reached a wide audience.
Each evening started with a welcome note by the Principal and an encouragement note by the President, SMC. The participants who were informed about their slot, came up and enthralled the audience live as if they were performing on a real stage. No limits or restrictions of the pandemic deterred their talent show but most of them put up their best performance with the accompaniment of karaoke. Filmy and non - filmy songs in various Indian languages reverberated in every home of the ISD Fraternity all through those 5 days creating a stress free ambience which was the main objective of the event.
