All, including the faculties, had gathered in Dhyana mandhira along with the people in JEEVAN SANDHYA. There was a formal welcome to all of them followed by Lord Ganesha’s sthuthi by one of the students. The residents of the ashram also introduced themselves and shared their experiences. Few students gave dance and instrumental performances and also shared some jokes. Games were organized for the elders there, which they enjoyed to the fullest. Delicious lunch boosted the programme. Post lunch, students visited the rooms of the wards. They were treated just like their grandchildren and had a homely feeling. Gifts were also distributed to them as a token of our love & affection towards them. One of the wards had also organized a quiz programme for our students, which was on ancient mythology and current affairs. Students got to know the significance of grandparents in our lives by their shared experiences. Apart from academic education what a student requires to know is the real education i.e.., the realities and problems of the society. Since our students are all future managers who will be placed in corporate in coming days, they need to know the importance of corporate social responsibility and contribute whole heartedly towards the welfare of the society.
