Bond of relationships takes centre stage

Colour, music, glitz and glamour, all came in handy to promote the hidden talent of students at ‘Rishtey 2013’ – the 17th Annual Day celebration of Delhi Paramedical and Management Institute.

Though the venue of the recently concluded programme was Kamani Auditorium, the ambience was no less than that of a college campus, abuzz with frenetic activity and energy of enthusiastic  students who participated in a number of events and competitions that ranged from music, literature, dance, poetry and theatre.

The topical events continued to inspire the students who performed theatrical and dance pieces on the theme of ‘Rishtey’ - which underscored the importance of relationships in every
sphere of life.

The festival began with the lighting of the auspicious lamp and was inaugurated by Dr Arvind Lal, chairman and managing director of Dr Lal PathLabs, who encouraged the students to participate in extra-curricular activities wholeheartedly along with due diligence towards their academics. “The health sector is emerging among all the upcoming yielding sectors in India,  and is the biggest hope for the people and students across,” he said addressing the gathering. He also extracted a promise  from all the students that “quality would be their priority and they would never compromise on it.”

The evening enlivened by activities hosted by the different wings of the college such as Ganesh Vandana; ‘A Tribute to a Woman’ – Damini ka Bharat ke Saath Rishta; ‘Rishton ki Raasleela’ – The relationship between all the States of India and a skit titled ‘SPARSH’ which encouraged and gave play to the creativity and intellect of the students.

The high point of the evening was the theatrical performance – Damini ka Bharat Ke Sasth Rishta by the drama group of the college. Through fierce action and drama, the message conveyed by the young dramatists clearly indicated the need for the government and the judiciary to expedite investigation and trial proceedings in cases related to gender related violence.

The play inspired by the December 16 gang rape case, called upon the spectators to protect women’s dignity and honour and cautioned people in power not to trivialise gender violence-related issues o with insensitive comments or impose unnecessary restrictions on women’s liberty and freedom. The play urged the youth to keep the struggle alive, till the desired transformation takes place in the society.

Adding glamour to the evening was Sanjeev Kapoor, celebrity chef who said: “The educational institutions in our country are the true cornerstones for the future growth of India. The students are the torchbearers in the country’s progress. I am confident that the acknowledgment of your achievements will go a long way in motivating other institutions to follow suit and aim for even higher standards.”
