This student oriented programme wouldn’t be complete without the coordination, commitment and enthusiasm shown by everyone. The collective intake of the audience and the outburst of cheers were amongst the best feelings one could ever hope to experience on such a day. It seemed that the students were thoroughly enjoying themselves. Everyone had a role to play. The whole day was amazingly harmonized with students stepping out to cheer their classmates and friends. No one stood in the centre of the field on that day; one would be startled with the activity and regular cheers erupting from different corners of the field. Crowd-managers and faculties were all doing their jobs flawlessly.
