77th Independence Day celebrations

The 77th Independence Day of India was celebrated at SDMIMD, Mysore, on August 15, 2023, from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. The SDMIMD family, which includes the directors, faculty, staff, and PGDM students, gathered in front of the administration block. Dr. Nanda Kishore Shetty unfurled the national flag at 8:10 AM, which was then followed by the rendition of the National Anthem.
Dr. Nanda Kishore Shetty addressed the gathering and emphasized the incredible journey of independent India from 1947 to 2023. The journey of India encompasses not only the milestones achieved but also the distance travelled between them. The topic of discussion is the transformation that has taken place from 1947 to 2023. He discussed the numerous unsung heroes and their sacrifices, as well as the innovations, struggles, and aspirations that have contributed to India becoming self-reliant, the world's largest democracy, and the fifth-largest global economy today.
Dr. Shetty emphasized the responsibility of management students, who are the future leaders of India, to work towards guiding our economy, industries, and innovations in the right direction. He encouraged them to innovate, not only with gadgets and apps but also with ideas such as creating an app that promotes kindness or developing a platform where the only status, they can update is a good deed they have done. Another suggestion was to share photos of themselves planting trees in public spaces. In his concluding remarks, he urged everyone to embrace the spirit of independence not just on Independence Day but every day of their lives.
Team Kalanubhav and Team Samprathi organized a series of cultural programs featuring captivating dance performances and patriotic songs. The event concluded with a community breakfast.
