Going back to old days

The ‘Annual Day’ celebrations of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s H B College of Communication and Management Alumni was recently held at the Khincha
Auditorium on Race Course Road.

“Since 1969, over 25,000 students have graduated from our college. We created the alumni last year to make a strong social network among old students and to have cultural fests where old and new Bhavan-ites can perform a few times in the year,” shares Chithkala, treasurer of H B College of Communication and Management.

At the event, the inaugural speech was given by Mahesh Joshi, deputy director, Doordarshan, who was also an old student of the college. Sreesh R Babu, president of the ‘Bhavan’s Alumni Association’, reminisced about his years as a student. “This has been an attempt to get our old classmates back together. Since this year is the 75th birth anniversary of the Bhavan, it seems fitting to have our first annual day today,” he says.

This was followed by an entertainment programme by the visually-challenged students of Deepa Academy. It was amazing to watch them gracefully perform a bharatanatyam dance and be in sync almost throughout the performance. They did a lot of line and circle formations.

“It was perfectly timed and spine chilling to see the passion with which these visually-challenged girls could perform. What was even more special about it was that they did it with smiles on their face throughout,” says Ashok, who witnessed the classical performance. “The confidence they showed was inspiring and
enchanting,” he adds.

The girls also enacted a comedy Kannada play written by Chandrasekhar. Last but not the least was their rendition of dollu kunitha, Karnataka’s folklore, as well as a few scenes from the Indian epics.
