The morning of 26th January, 2014 began on a different note in IIM Udaipur. The maddening rush to classes was replaced by a flavoured celebration of the 65th Republic Day by the faculty, staff and students of IIMU with gusto. The event started with the flag hoisting by Director, Prof. Janat Shah followed by the National Anthem. Culcomm – The Cultural Committee of IIMU sparked the celebrations with scintillating performances of a dance act and a street play captivating the audience. PGP student Shuchismita Biswas enthralled everyone with her mesmerizing recital of patriotic songs. The dash of fervor in the day was added by the Republic Day Quiz conducted by Potpourri – The Literary Club of IIMU.
The Constitution of India came into force on this day and everyone at IIMU derive great pride that under the leadership of Prof. Janat Shah, we are working towards building an institute striving towards excellence. IIMU is one of the first institutes in India to come with a Code of Conduct and a Constitution in effect within just two years of its foundation. And to ensure that the proper strategic directives laid are properly implemented, IIMU has a student elected body, Council of Student Affairs overseeing the working procedures. IIMU’s approach of adopting latest standards like CRM will aid in effective monitoring of all the aspects of the institute’s functioning.
The celebrations of the campus continued in an excursion to the new campus site at Balicha, Udaipur. The outing was orchestrated by Prayatna – The Social Responsibility Club of IIMU. The students were accompanied by Mr. Joel Xavier, Manager – Student Affairs, IIMU who with his years of experience as an avid traveler, photographer, biker and a planner of such trips since his IIMA days made the day fun filled.
