Shillong: Celebrating the country’s 70th Republic Day, IIM Shillong witnessed exuberant participation of its fraternity at its current Mayurbhanj Palace campus. Prof Keya Sengupta, Director in charge of the Institute hoisted the National Flag at 08:30am in presence of Students, Faculties, Officers, Staffs and the security personnel. Prof Sengupta while addressing the gathering said, “This is an occasion for celebrating but at the same time it is an occasion for contemplation. As we say in management, working on the action plan for the future.” Prof Sengupta went on to highlight the achievements of faculties and students, saying, “Through each passing year we strive towards making the Institute even better than before.”
The event, which commenced with hoisting of the National Flag, came to a beautiful end with two students rendering self-composed poems named, “An ode to the Constitution” and “Padchinh”, which talked about the last moments of a martyr.
The event ended on a high note leaving the students with a renewed sense of responsibility towards the Institute and the country. The celebration of the day continued with students taking advantage of a bright day and participating in kite flying amongst other activities.
