The tricolor fluttered proudly in the lush green IMI campus on the Independence Day. IMI family had gathered to celebrate the country’s 69th Independence Day. The day is observed with great solidarity and is celebrated every year in all parts of the country with fervent zeal and patriotism. The enthusiasm was no different at IMI. Everyone’s eye blazed with pride and happiness with the tricolor flying high.

All were soberly dressed for the occasion with a miniature flag pinned. Respected director Mr. Ramesh Behl, unfurled the flag to the melodious tunes of the national anthem and slogans.  He shared his thoughts that we all should be proud of being a part of a country which is known for unity in diversity. The young generation should admire their fortune that they are born on the land of an independent India and have the privilege to breathe in free air. No one can imagine how difficult the situations were at the time of slave India. It’s really important that we respect our independence and add glories to our nation. He advised the students to grow as responsible citizen and work on the vision of Late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam to make India a developed nation from being a developing nation. We all must work together without any self-motive and take our nation to new heights. Merit certificates and cash prize were awarded to the toppers of the PGDM 2014-2016 batch.

Carrying forward the legacy, the PGDM 2015-17 batch planted saplings in the campus. It was followed by few cultural activities which were lined up for the day. The programme was beautifully coordinated with group songs and dance. Few performances left the audience spellbound with their bouquet of fresh songs. The program concluded on a high crescendo with sweets and snacks distribution.
