Last week I witnessed the first ever convocation of my life. Although it was not my convocation, rather for the PG03 (my senior batch). The feel, the environment, the enthusiasm, the anxiety, the happiness & the satisfaction levels were unprecedented. Our Director - Dr. Pritam Singh, Chief Guest - Montek Singh Ahluwalia (Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission), Chairman of MDI, Dean Academics, Dean Research, entire faculty fraternity, graduating fellow student, NMP students, EMP students and of course PGPM students (PG03) were all dressed in the convocation gown, with a ceremonial hat (dunno the technical name for it!!)

Prof. V. Sridhar, Mr. N.K. Singh,
The chanting of shlokas, added to the ambiance. Many of the PG03 students, like Ashutosh Dtara, Ankit Gupta, Raja Dutta, Manesh Jain etc. received prizes for excellence in different fields. Every student received their most sought after certificate – the diploma certificate!!!
Then came the time for ritual, which I was very enthusiastic to watch myself – yes the throwing of the hats in the air – and believe me – it was an event which really made me quest for my graduation day.
During the whole event, I realized that very soon I’ll finds myself wearing the same gown & my juniors helping us for the ceremony. The time gap of 1 year will fly away faster than how the last year vanished.
Am surely missing many of my seniors – Saurav Dey, Aarti, Datar, Sai, Mayank – coz they were simply great!!!
