Big-Ticket Events Mark 3-Month Long Silver Jubilee Celebrations At Bhubaneswar’s KIIT

Minute’s Silence Observed At Concluding Ceremony As Mark Of Respect For Turkey-Syria Earthquake Victims

Bhubaneswar: The curtain came down on the three-month long KIIT Silver Jubilee Celebration (Soil to Silver), which saw big-ticket academic and cultural events being organised successfully including the all-India vice-chancellors’ conference, corporate conclave, parents’ meet, staff conference, mega blood donation camp.

A minute’s silence was observed at the concluding ceremony on Thursday as a mark of respect for victims of the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquake earlier this month. Several students from Turkey and Syria are pursuing higher studies at KIIT.

Commending students and staff for their wholeheartened support and discipline in making the three-month-long programme a big success, KIIT and KISS Founder Dr Achyut Samanta said that classes and examinations were conducted smoothly during the entire period.

“Nobody thought that the silver jubilee celebrations will be conducted successfully for three months… All thanks to the Almighty. The programme has no parallels across the globe. I am leaving behind a legacy, a tradition and it is up to the future generation to take it ahead,” Dr Samanta said.

He observed that the spirit of the celebration – academic to humanitarian – was ably captured with the conduct of all-India VC conference at the beginning of the celebration and concluding with the mega blood donation camp that saw 4030 units being collected.

KIIT student Shivani Sangita Sarangi, who was adjudged best actor (female) in the recently-held 31st State Film Awards, was felicitated by the Founder.

KIIT president Saswati Bal, KIIT and KISS vice-president Umapada Bose, KIMS pro-VC Dr CBK Mohanty, KIIT VC Prof. Sasmita Samanta, KIIT and KISS secretary RN Dash addressed the gathering.
