The CMS tableau presented at the Republic Day Parade, sent a world wide appeal for people to show their gratitude towards the world by giving back what we have received from it, and making it safe and secure for the present and coming generations. It focussed on Article 51 of the Constitution of India which motivates every citizen to work towards the cause of World Unity and Peace and show respect for International Law.
The tableau also highlighted the spirit of Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam (the whole earth is but one family) which our wise constitution makers visualized. The tableau clearly stood out and shone among the rest, winning the applause and appreciation of the crowds thronging both sides of the road at the Parade. CMS Campuses also put up contingents for March Past, drills and colourful dances which were much appreciated and cheered. CMS Chowk Campus won the first prize at the Parade for its Vande Mataram Dance.
The CMS tableau had four parts, each spreading the message to do something for human welfare. The front part of this tableau showed a small boy holding a globe with the message 'One day I will unite the world and make it a heaven,' thus aiming to fulfill the objectives of Article 51 of the Indian Constitution.
The second part showed the holy places of the different religions of the world all under one roof, showing temple, mosque, church, gurudwara, baudh vihar, Baha'i temple etc. It spreads the message that Almighty God is the source of all religions and that the teachings in scriptures are sent by One God as per the need of the age. Thus, the essence of all religions is to unite people. Under this roof CMS students were seen dancing on the song 'Vishwa Hamein Deta Hai Sab Kuch, Hum Bhi To Kuch Dena Seekhein' (The World gives us everything, We too, should return something).
The third part of the tableau showed a 'World Parliament' for maintaining peace, security, brotherhood, love and unity and an unbiased and just world order. The laws enacted by this 'World Parliament' will be binding and enforceable on all the nations. The International Court of Justice in the Netherlands, constituted the fourth part of this tableau, giving the message to empower the World Judiciary for implementing World Laws for the greater benefit of the human race.
