The President of NIIT University invited all faculty and staff with their families to an evening of celebration on June 6, 2022. After battling the coronavirus and its waves for almost 2 years, the world started getting back on its feet. The academic work at NU also returned to normalcy in the previous semester with most of the classes and almost all exams getting conducted in offline mode. The get-together was organized to allow everyone to meet and share some informal time together. The event was graced by all members of the leadership team of NIIT University. The mess courtyard was decorated with lights and it gave a beautiful warm feeling to all members present. The evening was kicked off by the adorableness of the kids who accompanied their parents to the event.
They were really enthusiastic and didn’t shy away from being the center of attention. In fact, many kids took the initiative, and to the delight of everyone present, danced, sang some songs, and recited poetry, thus paving way for the faculty and staff to let go of their inhibitions and perform something.
The wonderful show of talent by the kids was followed by the elders’ performances. Faculty members, staff members, and even their spouses came forward to present their talent. Some sang songs, and some recited poetry making the evening merrier and enthralling. Prof. Rajesh Khanna, President, NIIT University addressed the attendees and expressed a desire to have more such get-togethers in the future where everyone comes together and bonds with their colleagues.
Dinner was served shortly after the performances were over and the guests were served a delicious and scrumptious meal. The guests enjoyed a variety of vegetables, salads, and sweet dishes. The guests bonded well through discussions over dinner and after-dinner walks. Everyone present, unanimously agreed that such events should be a regular occurrence, as they help people unwind and relax with friends and family.
