I opted to study Journalism and Mass Communication, under IP University, New Delhi, way back in 2014, after admissions and selections. How time flies by, and now it is 2017! My final exams are expected to begin from next month. I really enjoyed learning new things and got lots of exposure from my teachers and fellow seniors as well.

Farewell Day is an event that brings mixed emotions to the mind and the heart. On one hand, graduating after three years of dedication, hard work and achievements gives a feeling of pride but on the other hand, departing from the college, teachers and fellow students is painful. The thought of moving into a new world makes you feel anxious and thrilled at the same time.

The Students, Faculty Members, Staff and Management of Trinity Institute of Professional Studies, Dwarka organized the farewell function, El-Veda at Radisson Blu, Dwarka Sector 13, for the students of BBA, B.Com (H), BCA and BJMC, on April 22, 2017 to bid a grand adieu to the graduating students. Around 1000 students, faculty and staff gathered to celebrate the joyous occasion.

The chief guest for the occasion was Mr. Chandrachur Singh, the famous Bollywood actor whose presence made the event more memorable for the students as well as the institute. The event was graced with the presence of Dr. R.K Tandon, Chairman, TIPS and Mrs. Reema Tandon, Vice-Chairperson, TIPS, along with Dr. Vikas Rao Vadi, Director, TIPS.

The event was inaugurated with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by Dr. R.K Tandon, Chairman, TIPS Dwarka. He inspired the students with a motivational speech and shared anecdotes from movies such as “PINK”, “BAGHBAN” etc. to inculcate Indian culture and values. He also made students aware about the new addition to the Kamal Educational Society, that is ‘Trinity Institute of Innovations in Professional Studies’.

Besides this the honorable chairman also appreciated the work done by Mr. Chandrachur Singh in the Bollywood industry. He invited the chief guest on stage to address the audience. Mr. Singh greeted everyone with great enthusiasm. He inspired students to follow their dreams and shared as to how he succeeded in chasing his dream of being a Bollywood actor. He wished the students best of luck and sang a few lines from the song that kept him motivated in times of struggle – “Ruk Jaana Nahi, Tu Kahin Haarke”.

After this, the screening of the movie ‘El-Veda 2017- Blessings’ took place that presented the wonderful memories of the last three years. The management and faculty members of various programmes showered their good wishes and blessings on students through the recorded messages in the movie. After that, the students of second year of all courses presented a variety of cultural events,which were greeted with a great applause from the audience.

The honorable chief guest surprised everyone with a mesmerizing performance. He sang famous and melodious Bollywood numbers; the students were so overwhelmed with the performance that few of them joined him on the stage. The programme was solemnized with giving away mementos and titles to the outgoing students by the Mr. Singh and the management, for their achievements in academics, sports and co-curricular activities.

A photo session was also held for the ongoing batch, to capture their memories in the heart for time immemorial. The programme ended with a ‘Vote of Thanks’ followed by lunch. Post lunch, DJ was organized for the students that gave a rhythmic end to the grand and gala event.
