Birthdays are one of the most awaited days of the year for most of us. It marks just another year of growth, both physical and intellectual, and of good times and good memories. So is the Foundation Day for one of the youngest and the finest business schools in the country, Great Lakes Institute of Management, Gurgaon.
On Saturday, 2nd of March 2019, the institute celebrated its 9th Foundation Day with a scintillating enthusiasm like every year. A zest so high that even the unpredicted rains could not bring it to a halt. The stage was set for the students of PGPM and both batches of PGDM who were ready to fill the hall with exuberance with their enchanting performances.
Dr. Debashis Sanyal, Director of Great Lakes Institute of Management, Gurgaon, and Mr. Mohan Lakhamraju, CEO and Vice-Chairman of the Institute, graced the event with their presence and inaugurated it with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp and the customary cake-cutting. They then addressed the audience with their motivating messages centred around sheer hard work, even with humble beginnings and against all odds, to seize the opportunity to write our own destiny.
The event was a melting pot of absolute talent with a host of performances ranging from dance to fashion show to original music compositions to hilarious campus video compilations. The students left no stone unturned in thrilling and entertaining the audience. Awards were given out to the students for outstanding performance in academic and extra-curricular activities, and to the faculty and staff for the invaluable service they have rendered to the institute. Finally, the floor was thrown open to everyone to dance to their favourite tunes. Indeed, it’s a herculean task to drain out the energy from a Great Laker.
