Chitkara University commemorated 73rd Republic Day with zest and fervour.
Chitkara University commemorated the 73rd Republic Day with zest and fervour. A series of events were arranged to instill a sense of camaraderie, fraternity, and patriotism among everyone. The Chief Guest for the event was Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Pro-Chancellor, Chitkara University, Punjab, who arrived first and was led to the flag post location by NCC cadets. The parade ceremony began when the National Flag was unfurled, and cadets and security personnel saluted the National Flag as they marched by. Republic Day is celebrated across the country with zeal and jubilation. While our country gained independence from British control on August 15, 1947, the Constitution took effect on January 26, 1950, when India was declared an independent republic. As the adage goes, “He who plants a tree, plants a hope.” The department of National Service Scheme, Chitkara University, Punjab, organized a tree-planting effort to commemorate the nation’s 73rd Republic Day.
The effort got off to a good start when Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Pro-Chancellor, Chitkara University, Punjab, planted a seedling. Others were also urged to plant trees and contribute to environmental protection. The planting drive was also attended by the deans and directors of several departments, who all contributed to the noble cause. The National Anthem was performed as the event came to a close. Everyone saluted the national flag and committed to protecting the country’s honor and integrity, as well as its diversity and individuality.
