Vive La Martiniere !

 

La Martiniere is one of those few educational institutions in India, that still is wrapped in traditions of the British-Indian Educational Institutions. Of course most of it has changed to respect and acknowledge free India, but there still are many traditions, that are a part of the old customs kept alive, to inculcate discipline among children, make them feel proud of their alma mater and try not to erase history all together. How else would one explain that the school has its own pipe band, has military training as a part of its curriculum, stables to train students in horse-riding, school hoists its own flag atop its building, has its own buglers et al. Morning chapel service, choirs singing the hymens and the morning assembly are traditions that are sights to behold. Then some special occasions such as the Constantia Day (1st October), Republic Day (26th January), Independence Day (15th August), Teachers’ Day (5th September), Founder’s Day (13th September), Hodson’s Run (2016: 19th Nov), Hashman’s Inter-Platoon and Inter-Wing Drill (2016: 15th Dec) and many more are treat to ones eyes (indicative 6 months calendar schedule posted on below on this webpage, though subject to change without notice).

We at Tornos have exclusive access to all these and more. Guests watch the proceedings, meet the students and the masters and of course have an opportunity to understand the traditions with closest proximity. It definitely is an absolute privilege for guests to be able to enter some of those areas, that otherwise are restricted for general tourists, to attend these events that are strictly by invitation and to experience the joys of being in La Martiniere. Why not club these with the visit to the college and make this visit even more meaningful and awesome.
