Let me say this at the risk of being called a MCP: One of the objectives of any Institute is to make men out of boys. We have been trying hard to create an atmosphere where talent is identified and enhanced. I have been prodding to Under-Grads to take initiatives and organize events which will break monotony and showcase talent of our community.
The first event was Nebula. The kids just organized a welcome party for themselves. The entire gamut of talent was on display. I was pleasantly surprised by the professional presentation. It was d**n good show.
Then the kids went into hibernation. Nothing happened for a long long time. One day Gaurav who belongs to the Post-Grad programme, approached and told me to leave the leadership to the Seniors. We just did that. Again the campus was abuzz with activities: cricket tournament, Debate competition, carrom tournament and many many more.
The climax was Nostalgia which resulted in some memorable performances by the students. The most touching was the skit by the kids from labour camp. My wife Sanjukta was so moved that She took all the money in my pocket and distributed them as prizes (Fortunately I do not carry a lot of money in my purse.).
As the Samsung Ad says Next is What after Nebula and Nostalgia?
