Gurgaon, March 2015: Fun engulfed ITM University, Gurgaon campus as students gathered to celebrate the Club Fiesta 2015, while love for the nation became palpable among students and faculty members as the varsity conducted ‘I Love My Tiranga’event.
The Club Fiesta, organized by various student clubs, comprised of extracurricular activities and competitions. It saw huge participation from enthusiastic students who were willing to showcase their extracurricular skills.
The day started off with a theatrical presentation by Abhimanch, the drama club of the University, followed by several cultural programmes and game shows. This year’s theme of the street play was ‘TRP in media’ and how it can divert the focus of the news, if not presented in a neutral way.
The photography club’s Lumiere – the photo exhibition -- got students awestruck, but it was the musical performance by college’s in-house band Encore that took their breath away.
“ITM University does not limit its students only to academics but also encourages them to participate and excel in extra-curricular activities helping them in their overall personality development. Social initiatives like ‘I Love My Tiranga’ would make students understand the social and moral values that are important for an individual as well as for the nation,”said Prof B S Panwar, Vice Chancellor, ITM University, Gurgaon.
‘I Love My Tiranga’ concept was conceived in 2012 when Mr. Khalid Qureshi, a Ticket Collector in Western Railways, started a marathon with the sole aim to encourage people of the nation to keep India’s tricolor at their homes.
This year the marathon was flagged off from Mumbai by the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Devendra Fadnavis on 26 January 2015, along with 65 runners.
The event at the ITM University was organized under the banner of University’s social club, Yukti. The students and staff of the varsity participated in the programme.
