The enthusiasm was there for all to see. Friendship day was celebrated and right from morning 8 am the IT department wore a festive look. Last minute practice, tying friendship ribbons, eating "wada pav", photographs, etc. It was truly a department come alive!
Not to be outdone by students, our young faculty members Sheetal and Shivranjani, helped by Edith and Suraj Naik joined in the celebrations and made sure that this would be a day to remember.
And indeed what a day it turned out to be! Music and dance dominated the evening's function in the College Hall and there was dumb charades too. Of course our studious ITonians had also "planned" a quiz, a debate, etc, etc. But I think the music and dance were too good. After all when you have salsa and folk dance from, among others, Manjushree and Swati, you couldn't care to trouble your brains with a quiz or spoil a lovely evening with a debate, would you? I must say that students organised the function very well. Our office staff, especially Shri Ramane was most co-operative, looking after the audio equipment. Staff of the IT dept Sandeep, Gaikwad, Munna, Vitthal and Nikhil were present right till the end of the function at 7 pm.
Inspite of being very busy with her administrative and teaching duties, our Principal, Dr Lakshmi Vyas was kind enough to grace the occasion and all the ITonians were very appreciative of this fine gesture on her part.
It was well past 7 pm by the time we packed up and went back home with the feeling that this was indeed a great day. New friends were made, old friendships renewed and a great time had by all.
Keep it up ITonians.
