The Farewell for Batch 2019 was organized on February 9 by Batch 2020 at the SVC Auditorium.
Students of Batch 2019 started flocking in at the venue at around 3:30 pm, all decked up in crisp suits, tuxedos, elegant sarees and other forms of ethnic wear and received a warm welcome. Quirky placards and a colorful photo booth were put up at the entrance of the auditorium where everyone could pose for photographs.
The program began at 4:15 pm with the lighting of the lamp. Director Sreeram Gopalakrishnan and faculty members- Professor Amitabh Dasgupta, Professor Dr. Shirin Abbas, Professor Vidyabhushan Arya and Professor Ananya Mehta took to stage and addressed the batch.
The second year students took it forward from there with a series of fun games and presentations such as the ‘#3YearsChallenge’, where photographs of students from their first semester and their last semester were displayed on screen with the famous old track of ‘Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam’ playing in the background.
This was followed by an award function and dance, music and poetry performances by second and third year students. The event was wrapped up with the Batch of 2019 dancing on stage. There were laughs, smiles and tears-the farewell was indeed an emotional rollercoaster for the students as they shared a special moment, as a batch, for one last time.
