10th LAKSHMI BAL MAHOTSAV
Jan 07, 2018
“Humans come and go, but humanity survives.” The 10th edition of the Lakshmi Bal Mahotsav was celebrated at IFMR on the 7th of January 2018. The Lakshmi Bal Mahotsav was started at IFMR in the year 2009 in the memory of late Lakshmi Iyer who was a student at IFMR. She loved kids and liked to do social service. This year Samarthan came up with the initiative of awarding scholarship to the most meritorious student in the school which Samarthan teach in the memory of Saurav Rakshit, an excellent student who passed away in an accident. About 200 kids came from two orphanages of TADA and Sullurpeta. Various activities were conducted to entertain the kids and make it a memorable day for them. The fingerprints of the children were taken as a memoir. Everyone wished them luck and happiness for them to spread their wings like a bird and take the best flight of life. Thus, the 10th edition of remembrance of our beloved alumni ended with fulfilment of societal contribution.
