The Annual Day
The Annual Day at SSE was held on the 9th of March, 2011.
The Annual Day at SSE was held on the 9th of March, 2011. It began with the welcome address from our director Dr. Jyoti Chandiramani. She ran us through all the achievements that SSE is proud of in the last one year despite all the trials and tribulations that the institution has faced as a fledgling establishment. Dr. Chandiramani ended her address by congratulating the first graduating batch (the TY students) and welcomed the Chief Guest, Dr. Parchure to the podium to address the students.
Dr. Parchure spoke about how Economists are famous for contradicting each other. To make his point he presented a wonderful sequence of quotes by eminent Economists, pre and post the sub-prime crisis. It was hilarious to see how our profession is full of dichotomous and different schools of thought, ideologies and principles.
Post the insightful presentation, the prize distribution ceremony started. It is important to mention here that the entire event was compered by the General Secretary Shruti and the Assistant General Secretary Sumit of the Student Council. Also, the entire programme was organized by the students with help from faculty members, Jameet Kaur and Roudra Chakraborty. Needless to say, they all did a wonderful job of it.
The prize distribution ceremony was not made very solemn and formal. Faculty members were invited on stage to give away the awards, certificates and trophies in a vicarious “Academy Awards” style. The students cheered and applauded and brought the auditorium down. It was very heartening to see such liveliness, fellow-feeling and enthusiasm on their part.
The ceremony ended with a “mokumentary” rendition of the on-campus life of the SSE community. Courtesy, some very intelligent and enterprising students of SY, the video clipping was very well received.
