Ushering in a positive change

 Interesting: A performance by the students of Karnataka Welfare Association for Blind.  As the internal exams had finished just a day before, the students enjoyed the celebrations to the fullest.

All the performances were well-planned. Apart from the regular dance numbers and music events, the event also saw some special programmes. The cultural programme took off with a magic show by Arjun, a second-year B Com student. He mesmerised the audience with his tricks. He performed some tasks which were fresh and unique in concepts. His show stood apart from the regular magic shows.  After him, Ranjita and Sowmya from the Commerce Department took over the stage and regaled the audience with a contemporary performance. “This programme is wholly planned by students. We raised funds from our classmates and arranged everything. What sets this programme apart from our other activities is that we are determined to utilise this day to bring a positive change in society,” says B G Naveen, one of the student organisers.

This year, more than 120 students from the college pledged their eyes for donation. “We want to create awareness among people about donating the eyes. So, we started by pledging to donate our own eyes,” adds Naveen. Visually-challenged students from the Karnataka Welfare Association for Blind performed Dollu Kunitha and a group dance on the day. “UNO has announced Abdul Kalam’s birthday as Student’s Day. It is a great honour for Indians. Abdul Kalam always says that youngsters can change the world. So, we thought of celebrating the day in a meaningful way. We have collected a small amount from students and donated that to Karnataka Welfare Association for Blind,” says Pradeep, another student.
