Independence Day Celebration 2017


Let’s not take our independence for granted, and make India a better place to live.

Legacy to live for and legacy to die for.

15th August 2017 marked the 70th Independence Day of India and this day was celebrated at ISBR campus with great enthusiasm and zeal.The entire campus presented a festive look with creative decoration, various kinds of flowers and tricolor ribbons. The celebrations started with a flag hoisting by the Chief guest Prof. Arun Swaminathan- an Architect, Academician, Cartoonist, Artist and Writer, in the presence of directors, all faculty members, staff and students of the college.

Following the flag hoisting, the chief guest Prof. gave a very motivational speech and encouraged students to excel in every field of life. He also talked about his father’s experience who was deployed as the captain in the Indian army during the freedom movement of India and who witnessed Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s iconic speech “Tryst with destiny” on the eve of India’s independence. The audience listened to the encouraging past of India with apt attention as it motivated each one of us to correct the things which have gone wrong presently in our system. He also advised everyone to adopt the human values of truthfulness, honesty, integrity, compassion and non-violence and become a good citizen of India.

The function began on a beautiful note wherein we had notable people address us and then our very own boys Bodhayan, Ankur and Manish performed on the song “Yeh Jo Desh hai tera” forcing the audience to jump in joy. Post this brilliant performance we had a very energetic dance performance by students of PGDM & MBA. Dance performances depicted the unity in diversity of the country, and the patriotic songs, highly spirited skit depicted the value of unity which touched the hearts of the audience. This created a warm environment full of enthusiasm and national fervor. Cheerfulness, motivation and dedication for the nation were clearly visible on the face of the audience.

It was also a great experience watching the members of the management also participating in the celebrations along with the students as Mr. Abbas Ali ( Director- placements) on this occasion delivered few shayaris. The function was concluded with a highly moving, heart touching and inspiring speech by the Dr. K.S Anandram (Senior Director), Dr. C. Manohar (Director- Strategy and Dean) and Prof. G.R Nair( Director- Admissions).

It was a great experience being part of such function in the presence of experienced and humble dignitaries who had given valuable information and advice to students. Although the students were from diverse backgrounds and culture, they all came together to make the program a grand success.
