On January 26, 1950, the Constitution of India was signed and India was declared a republic. It’s a day, which every Indian is proud of. With the same pride the 68th Republic Day of India was celebrated on January 26, 2017, at IMI Bhubaneswar, by its faculty, staff and students.
The event started with the ceremony of hoisting the Indian National Flag by Prof. Ramesh Behl, Director (IMI Bhubaneswar). After the ceremony, Director sir addressed the students and reminded everyone of the responsibilities they have on their shoulders to make the country proud, even with small actions. He also stressed that we all must respect our environment and make every possible effort to keep it clean and healthy for living. It’s important that we sustain what we have received from our forefathers and add glories to it. We all must work together without any self-motive. With this, he urged everyone to plant a tree that they will remember and recognize, whenever they come back to the campus.
After a small tea break, parallel matches of cricket and football were played by the students, staff and faculty of IMI Bhubaneswar. Overall the college celebrated the Republic Day with full zeal.
