Jalandhar, Jan 26, 2021: The SWA Wing of Apeejay College of Fine Arts, Jalandhar, celebrated the 72nd Republic Day with great enthusiasm. College Principal, Dr Neerja Dhingra, felt ecstatic for being able to celebrate it with students on the campus. Addressing the students, she put forth that patriotism should not invoke in our hearts on few occasions only but we should nurture this feeling throughout the year. While living and enjoying our lives, we should never forget our heroes at the borders securing our lives every moment. She added we ought to respect the freedom which we are enjoying today with utter sincerity as the price of it has been paid by many heroic warriors in the past. She also put forth that be it any field, our country is making developments at every front and the recent accomplishment is its contribution in the manufacturing of vaccination for COVID-19.
On this occasion, the national flag was hoisted on the campus while the students played the tune of Vande Matram on sitar. Under the aegis of Dr Vivek Verma and Dr Mandeep Singh from the Department of Music (Vocal), the students sang patriotic songs and the entire campus was flourishing with feelings of patriotism.
On this occasion, Dr Sunit Kaur, Head of the PG Department of English, put across that if we treat the entire country as our own home, it would be so much greener and cleaner and this will add to the glory of our nation.
Dr Neerja Dhingra, appreciated the students and the organisers - Dr Jagmohan Mago and Ms Payal Arora, and all the other faculty members for successfully organising the event.
