On the 30th of January 2015, students from ISBR Business School performed at Infosys’ CSR initiative on India’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. The resource person for the same was, Mr. Gautham Nigam from the marketing department who took charge of the team upon their arrival.
The ISBR Team performed a Skit, Dance and Mime for the employees based on the theme ‘Swachh Bharat’ which translates to ‘Clean India’. The Skit was meant to convey a strong message of awareness regarding the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and several issues surrounding it such as accusations that the campaign is merely a publicity stunt and that it would not result in any improvement to India’s hygiene problem. The Skit also sought to raise awareness regarding the many ways that we harm each other by not keeping our surroundings clean and the importance of waste segregation. After the Skit, the ISBR Team performed a dance number on three social and moral ideas namely, ‘Go Green, Get Clean’, ‘Break Silence on Men’s Violence’ and ‘Corruption Leads to Destruction’. Finally, the students performed a Mime showcasing a collective message of how we, through our own efforts, can clean India and that we should not depend on celebrities or politicians for the same.
After the performance, the team was given a complimentary lunch during which time, Mr. Gautham Nigam shared some of his own experiences in the corporate world with the team along with a few useful tips. After lunch, the students were given the opportunity to explore the campus and tech park before leaving. It was a memorable experience and a privilege to have been part of this team.
