“Freedom in the mind, Faith in the words, Pride in our souls; Let’s salute those great men who have made this possible.”
With this spirit 72nd Independence day was celebrated with full zeal and zest at LMCP.
The celebration began with Guard of Honor which was led by Harshit Mandaliya and Rohan Gajjar. This was followed by flag hoisting ceremony, led by Chief Guest Shivakaka and Principal Sir Dr. M. T. Chhabria. The faculty members and students were also present and sang national anthem in unison.
After the flag hoisting ceremony a short cultural programme was organized where students sang patriotic songs, gave instrumental performance and speech.
Principal sir in his speech encouraged students not to take independence lightly, be a good citizen, not to violate any rules and serve our motherland in every way possible.
Farewell was bid to Shiva kaka by felicitating him with a bouquet.
After that, Yash Shah delivered a speech in which he expressed his gratitude for the tricolour. He shared his views on how we have developed so far and achieved heights of success but also what we need to keep in mind for future progress. Group and Solo performances (from B.Pharm Sem – 3 and B.Pharm Sem – 5) were also there which filled the audience with patriotic fervour.
