It was a brisk start to a pleasant evening that marked the celebrations of Teachers’ Day . The A-13 hall, where the function was held was filled with enthusiastic students and visually excited teachers. Every staff member associated with DOMS was personally invited with roses and was awaiting for the events to commence. The Director of NIT surprised many by making a presence on the important day. The function started off with a welcome speech by Anbarasi. A Sanskrit prayer followed moments after the welcome speech invoking god’s presence. The Director, DR.Sundararajan and other senior staff members including our beloved Head Of Department Dr N.Thamaraiselvan went on to the stage to lighten the lamps and officially mark the beginning of the function.
The Director addressed the gathering spending a few minutes on the stage and sharing his valuable insights.He spoke mainly on how management studies are closely connected to the teaching profession than any other department. Later, our Head of the Department gave a short but a sparkling speech in which he emphasized on teachers being recognized and celebrated since that’s the only way they are being acknowledged. Dr.Kannabiran and Dr.Punniyamoorthy also shared their experiences with the audience.
The evening even had a poetic touch to it when Anbarasan and Rahul took the stage and recited a poem on significance of teachers in everyone’s lives. The poem originally written in Tamil by Anbarasan was translated into Hindi and recited by Rahul who catered to the Hindi audience. A video dedicated to our teachers was played and appreciated by one and all.The credits for the touching video goes to Abdul, Harshit and Arjun.
A celebration without cake cutting is always incomplete, so we invited every teacher who graced the occasion on to the stage for the cake cutting . As cameras captured the cake being cut and teachers sharing the pieces, snacks was announced.
Finally came the most anticipated events of the evening. First in the order was Insur’s guitar perrformance that left the hall filled with blissful music. Then came some scintillating dance performances by both guys and girls from the first year batch. What followed were two engaging games that saw teachers participating with enthusiasm. “This That Those” ,the first game that tested the participator’s presence of mind and the second was the “Gifts Exchange” game that witnessed teachers picking up their destined gifts. With all smiles on every teacher’s face, the evening ended with a vote of thanks given by Trilochan.The hall was emptied minutes after the organizers took a group pic to mark the first function conducted by the first year batch.
