Batches PGDM 14-16 and 15-17 of IBA Bangalore along with the Teachers & Staff celebrated the Teacher’s Day this year with huge pomp and show. The preparations had actually began a week prior with students making the beautiful customized invitation cards for all the teachers & staff based on the subjects they teach/jobs they perform.
The program started around 3pm with Saraswati Vandana and lighting up the lamp. The students were enlightened with a speech by Dr. Subhash Sharma, Director – IBA Bangalore; his motivational words inspired all the students and faculty members. Afterwards, a student performed an English song which everybody enjoyed followed by a student’s speech that everyone appreciated. The crowd was overwhelmed with a dance face-off between students, followed by respected Principal Sir, Dr. M S Ramachandra’s speech.
Later came the main event; an Antakshari in which all faculty members participated with full enthusiasm. Students saw a new side of their teachers where they were all in a different mood. They were singing songs with great love and enjoyment. The melodious phase of songs continued for about 40-45 minutes followed by a Q & A round. Then the auditorium turned Retro when the band of boys had a round of old melodies. There was also a dance performance by girls. Prof. Suresh Chandra then through his speech enlightened everybody present and entertained as well with bits of humour.
The program came to an end with Vote of thanks and cake cutting ceremony. IBA is indeed the second home to its students where teachers are parents who always make their children feel at home.
