Youth is the pillars of the country and they build a nation’s future. Patriotism and youth are inseparable entities and it is essential that the same be internalized into their awareness. Notions count upon the youth to carry their ideas forward by taking up their social responsibility.
To prepare and enkindle the spirit of patriotism in our young students, our college organised a week long programme which was inaugurated on 7th of August 2019 by Sahana Kumari Nagaraj Gobbargumpi, the current national record holder for high jump in India (female).
On 8th of August 2019, the college felicitated guardians, the police force, from various police stations around Koramangala. Dr. Isha Pant (IPS) was the chief guest for the event. This was followed by the “Unsung Heroes” competition for II PU students, which enabled them to identify various real-life heroes who contribute to our society’s well-being. I PU students simultaneously participated in collage, debate, pick and speak, and elocution competitions.
On 9th August 2019, various competitions like ‘Rangoli’, ‘Fireless Cooking’, ‘Art with Waste’ and ‘Sculpture Making’ were conducted, which had a tremendous participation rate from our I and II PU students.
On 10th August 2019, the college organised a walkathon for the cause, ‘Live Life Cleaner, by making the Earth greener’. The walkathon was inaugurated by Ms. Sandhya Manjunath, a national-level basketball player and first Indian to coach the Indian Women’s Basketball team. This was a resounding success.
13th August 2019 was a remarkable day as the college felicitated two great personalities who have made an incomparable contribution to our state’s green revolution, environmentalist Padma Shri Saalumarada Thimmakka and Mrs. ‘Capsicum’ Kamalamma. It shall forever remain a day everyone who witnessed will cherish. Jyoti Nivas College also celebrated the 176th Founders day. The Nexus team performed a meaningful and entertaining skit to remind us of the sacrifices and struggles faced by our foundresses. As a mark of respect, Sr. Mary Mascarenhas, a senior member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Tarbes community, was felicitated and requested to share her experience with those present.
Yuva Saviskara concluded on 14th August 2019 as the prize distribution ceremony was held. All winners of the Yuva Saviskara Week 2019 were awarded trophies and certificates.
If one believes in altering the social order to create a just society where the only religion is of humanity, one is a Patriot. We at Jyoti Nivas Pre-University College are constantly working together, to prove our love and respect towards the country by shaping the young minds left in our care into socially aware and empathetic citizens.
