The 72nd Independence Day was celebrated in the institute with great patriotism and enthusiasm. The flag hoisting ceremony was conducted at Main Building Foyer in presence of the Director of the institute, Professor Devang Khakhar. The national flag was unfurled by the Director at 9:00 in the morning followed by the National Anthem and a speech. Every hostel of the Institute also observed the hoisting ceremony and the notions of liberty and independence were cherished. The programme served as a reminder for everyone to value the ultimate sacrifice of our freedom fighters who laid down their lives so that we could live with dignity in an independent nation.
