The Literary Club of B.S.Abdur Rahman Crescent Institute of Science and Technology celebrated “Rashtriya Ekta Diwas” (National Unity Day) which is observed to commemorate the Birth Anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on 31st October 2018, as per the guidelines of UGC.
The event began with the inauguration at 10.00AM during which the Registrar of the Institute Dr.A.Azad, addressed the students about the unparalleled contribution and sacrifice of our freedom fighters and in particular Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in building the Modern India. He highlighted the evils of corruption and gave a powerful message that the development of our country should be all inclusive. Then the students were screened a video on Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, his life and contributions and the merits of his statue which was dedicated to our nation by our Honourable Prime Minister. It was followed by students and staff taking the pledge on National Unity Day. The Dean, Student Affairs Major General Gurdeep Narang briefed the students about the excellent contribution rendered by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in uniting the princely states of India. He also stressed on the need for working towards realizing his hopes and aspirations by the younger generation.
Many literary events like Shipwreck, Debate, Block and Tackle, Elevator Pitching, Creative Writing, Poetry Slam, Spell Bee, Tight Corner, Photography and Short film were conducted after that. All the events were conducted with the major theme to promote national integration, safety, security and unity. Topics relating to national unity, social justice, equality, corruption, were discussed by students which really served as an eye-opener for many. Cash prizes were distributed to the winners. Nearly 120 students took the pledge and vowed to spread the message of unity, safety and security.
