Mangaluru: On January 26th, 2022 Republic Day was celebrated at 9 a.m. on the college premises. Govardhan Shetty, President of Lions Club was the Chief Guest of the programme. Staff members and a few students were present for the flag hoisting programme. Zunira Banu, Student of Sewing Technology welcomed the chief guest and the gathering.
The flag was hoisted by the chief guest and everyone sang the national anthem. Later, the students of Sewing Technology sang the patriotic song.
The chief guest addressed the gathering with a short message saying that the full name of India is Republic of India. The Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950 and Dr Rajendra Prasad took the first tenure and became the President of India. Indian citizens have the power and can choose the government democratically. January 26 was chosen as Republic Day because it was on this day in 1929 that the Indian National Congress issued the Declaration of Indian Independence. Life has given us two gifts: Chance and Choice. We have the chance to meet many people throughout our life and we have the Choice to select friends for our life. We will succeed only by taking powerful decisions or giving power to our decisions. Knowledge is power and only by our actions things can be done. So knowledge must be changed to actions.
The vote of thanks was given by Velisha Tellis, Student of Sewing Technology. The programme was compared by Zunira Banu, Student of Sewing Technology.
