Republic Day @ SNSCE

The 59th Republic Day was celebrated with pomp and grandeur all over the country and so was the (first) Republic Day celebrations at SNSCE. The function was optional for the students and faculty members but that did not stop a jostling crowd gathered to commemorate and celebrate the spirit of Indian Republic. The organising comittee comprising of our Physical Director D.Saravanamoorthy, Office Assistant P.Gopal and Student R.Britty(EEE) took care that everything was planned well and thereby went well.

The talkative R.S.Pradeepraj (ECE) was rightly the MoC for the function. The function started with the assembly of students and prayer. After the prayer, our Principal Dr.G.Karuppuswami hoisted the national flag as per customs. The girl students wonderfully rendered the Flag song in chorus. The Republic Day Parade Committee headed by Vyshak (IT) (comprising of students from all the Departments) then marched past bestowing honour of the day to our Principal. Our Principal gave a key note address highlighting the achievements of our country in the past and in the present. He also formulated a list of things India could well achieve by 2020 and urged students to work towards the occassion. The address was well received by the students. The function ended with the National Anthem after which the students posed in groups in the backdrop of the national flag.
