“We felt at home away from home with our friends at SRM AP who have become family”- Apurba Kumar Howlader (3rd year, Mechanical Engineering).
As dusk fell on the eve of the new year, an extravagant celebration was witnessed at the SRM AP campus. The basketball court was stunningly decorated with disco lights, a perfect backdrop for the celebration.
The ambiance was set with soulful performances by “Diversity”-the student’s band led by the lead vocalist Asim along with Suchet B Thapa on guitars, Srijan B Thapa with clap box, and Srijeet Tomrokar as an acoustic guitarist.
The new year is the time to cherish the fond memories of the passing year before bidding farewell to it. The students participated in the competition “Rewind 2019” where they had to create a video on their memorable moments spent in SRM AP. Sukumar (2nd year, Computer Science Engineering) bagged the first prize in the competition whereas, Parshal Chitrakar (3rd year, Computer Science Engineering) himself narrated his year’s journey on camera to become the runner up.
The much-awaited “DJ Night” began right after where the students grooved to English, Hindi, and Telugu music handpicked by Sukumar. “Nothing could have been better than this celebration right before the turn of the year where we got to spend time with our mates”, says Sreelekha Bhuvaneswari (2nd year, BSc.Physics)
The countdown to 2020 began at midnight and soon enough skyrockets shot off to declare that we stepped into the new year. A cake-cutting ceremony by Wng Cmdr Venkataachalam Sekkappan (Director-CLM) marked the end of the day. Suchet B Thapa (3rd year, Mechanical Engineering) wraps it up aptly by saying, “The jazzy celebration is a 20 on 20 to begin the year 2020”.
