Singapore’s National Day Parade Experience (as a participant)


The National Day is celebrated on the 9th August, 2017. The theme for this year’s National Day Parade (NDP) is “#OneNationTogether”. Singapore celebrates its 52nd birthday at the Marina Bay floating platform. I want to share with you all a memorable journey of being attached to this beautiful organization since many years. Having about 600 members participating with the spirit of Many in body one in mind was an amazing treat to the eyes. In the process of participating in such initiatives, SSA (Singapore Soka Association) members have the opportunity to strengthen their own faith and understanding of Buddhism and engage in their human revolution while also deepening friendship and connections with others. Through such activities, the challenge of harmonious coexistence—learning to respect and collaborate with others, bridging differences in order to meet a common objective—at once becomes both a personal and collective endeavour. We had a spectacular mass performance that included light shows and formations choreographed dance routines involved members who are not trained dancers. We were in Act 2 – Growing Together begins with a throwback to the five Show protagonists as children sharing their dreams. With all the light effects, it was indeed a heart-warming performance.
