Honouring India’s freedom journey
India’s freedom has been hard won. Years of struggle and perseverance on the part of our ancestors have led to the establishment of our cherished democracy. In honour of 75th Independence Day, Brainware University under the guidance of The University Grants Commission(UGC) and the leadership of our honourable Prime Minister Mr Narenda Modi joined the nation in celebration of “Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav” on March 12, 2021.
Launched 75 weeks before our 75th Independence Day, this mega event seeks to bring together the nation in order to celebrate the 91st anniversary of Dandi March, the historical event which sparked India’s journey to Independence.
Brainware University organised a cultural programme on March 12, 2021 from 3:30 PM to celebrate the launch of this event. Students from the university enthusiastically delivered speeches and wrote essays on the impact of Dandi March and the role of Mahatma Gandhi in our freedom struggle.
Arkhoprabha Dutta, a participant, reflected that, “Gandhiji didn’t wait for others’ approval. He didn’t care if the British liked him or not or whether there were people joining him. He started walking because it was the right thing to do and others followed. I think as youth we too need to be trailblazers for our country.”
The programme ended with a message to the students that they should cherish their country and learn about its history. “True appreciation only comes when we understand where we started and how far we have come,” said the event conveyor Ms. Monamie Mukherjee(Assistant Professor, Department of English and Literary Studies).
