The Educational Odyssey: Unveiling History at the Red Fort

On the 22nd of September, 2023, East Point School organized an enlightening educational trip for Class VII students to the magnificent Red Fort in Delhi, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Accompanied by their teachers Mr Aasim, Ms Richa Srivastava, Ms Tabassum Moeen and Ms Priyanka Naudiyal, the students embarked on a fascinating journey by bus around 4:30 pm. The Red Fort, an architectural marvel constructed by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 1648, stands as a jewel in India’s historical legacy. As the students arrived, a representative guide led them through the Lahori gate, and the awe-inspiring red sandstone structure left them spellbound. The bustling Chatta Bazaar added to the invigorating experience. Inside, they explored museums showcasing artifacts, weapons, clothing, and photographs from the Mughal period, including a worn-down shirt worn by the last Mughal Emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar, during the tumultuous days of 1857. This shirt, considered holy and sent from Mecca for the Mughals’ good fortune, was later discovered within the fort premises after Bahadur Shah Zafar had to flee during the British reconquest of Delhi. A projection displayed the fort’s map, including the halls of public and private audience (‘Diwan-e-Aam’ and ‘Diwan-e-Khas’), and a virtual presentation of the Kohinoor diamond that once adorned the Peacock Throne. The students were eager to learn about the Mughal era and enthusiastically explored the museum’s replicas of Mughal clothing and a menu detailing the emperors’ food platter. Another captivating display was the representation of Chatta Bazaar, a roofed bazaar from the 17th century, complete with an actor dressed as a shopkeeper of that era. The museum tour concluded at the “unity room,” where the sacrifices of freedom fighters were honoured, leaving a powerful impact on the young minds. Following the museum visit, the students were taken to the cafeteria on the ground floor. The highlight of the trip was the virtual ‘Jai Hind’ show within the museum—a thrilling walk-through experience that captivated the students for 6-7 minutes with its engaging introductory segment. Subsequently, the students eagerly attended the ‘Jai Hind’ show at 7:00pm, a one-hour spectacle divided into three parts, each held at different parts of the fort. The students were mesmerized by the show, and it proved to be an enriching and informative experience, leaving them brimming with a sense of pride and a newfound appreciation for India’s historical heritage. The trip provided not only fun and photo opportunities but also an invaluable learning experience, making it a memorable outing for all.
