FIIB celebrates Independence Day

FIIB Coloured Orange and Green

“At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.

65 years ago, India witnessed a moment which changed its destiny forever. Decades of struggle came to an end, as India was declared Independent. Reminiscing the historic moment, FIIB-ians hoisted the tricolor on the grounds of FIIB on the eve of Independence Day in honor of the fighters who laid their lives in the service of the country.

To uphold the spirit, FIIB campus was decorated with saffron, white and green colored balloons. Faculty and Staff members pinned the tricolor onto their sleeves and the students were dressed in the tricolor. Sweets were distributed to everyone to celebrate the moment and everyone was encouraged to sign a notice board with their thoughts.

On the occasion, Mr. Manish Kheterpal, Chairman of FIIB, addressed the gathering of Faculty, Staff and Students encouraging them to feel proud of being an Indian despite the negative news all around like Maoist movements, riots and corruption. He boosted their morale by quoting statistics like India leads the world in terms of GDP and Growth rate of GDP. He also encouraged the students to believe that India is a land of opportunity since India despite being 2nd most populous country ranks only 11th in terms of economy. He left the students with a thought quoting Business Leader Steve Jobs, which has encouraged him since his MBA days at Stanford- ‘Make a difference’. Make a difference to the people you care for and the society. He elaborated that to make a difference one must work hard, as working hard has no substitute. He explained that with the opportunities our country offers come with responsibility which we must take.

In its small way, FIIB paid tribute to the nation we all are proud of.
