World Photography Day 2021 - Pandemic Through the Lens
August 19 is celebrated as World Photography Day, a day to pay keep the history of photography alive and create a positive trail for the future. We all know that France was a pioneer country in the world of photography, which gave the world, the first photographic processes. It was in the year 1839 that Louis Daguerre invented the daguerreotype, a photographic process at a time when the world could never have anticipated that a moment could be captured permanently through a photograph. In 1826, Niepce captured the earliest known permanent photograph known as “View from the Window at Le Gras” using a process called heliography. As early as 1839, American Robert Cornelius clicked a selfie. Cornelius set his camera up, took the image by removing the lens cap and then running into frame. On the back, he wrote “The first light picture ever taken 1839”.

The first digital photograph was taken in 1957; almost 20 years before Kodak’s engineer invented the first digital camera. In 1861, the first colour photograph appeared on the scene by Thomas Sutton.

From them on, we have been capturing beautiful instances and visuals as long lasting memories. Then the old photography themes were shelved entirely to make way for sophistication, filters, effects and 3D visualization treats. On August 19, 2010 World Photo Day hosted its first global online gallery in which almost 270 photographers shared their pictures and people from over 100 countries visited the website. This marked the first official, globally reaching World Photo Day.

In commemorating this wonderful day, the department of Professional Accounting and Finance announces the Photography contest for its students. Let us all celebrate this wonderful day. Happy World Photography Day!

We were introduced to various harsh realities of life which have left an everlasting impact on us. We realized that life is short and time fleets quickly and hence we should cherish, nurture and love every relationship we have, before it is too late. External beauty passes away with time but the beauty of our soul remains intact for the rest of our lives.

We played musical chairs and various other games with them. We danced, sang and pour our hearts out. We interacted with them and we felt connected to them. They shared their love, feelings and anecdotes and took us back in time by over 50 years.
We entered the old age home with immature minds and hearts but we left the place with zest and inspiration.
We thank the Management for giving an opportunity and experience which we will cherish throughout our lives.
Feedback from Students:
It was really nice. Got to know many struggling stories and values….Had fun and interacted. I would like to thank our college for giving this opportunity to meet the women in the old age home and get to know them. They were really sweet. - Arya.s
It was great pleasure to spend some time with women in the old age home. Though we planned little our unity made things possible and the support of our class animator made us participate in many things. The women were active….even though they are old they are still a child by heart. I would like to thank our college for this wonderful opportunity and request for another visit. - Nithya. E
The visit was fun and gave us a lesson to always respect our parents. The people there were really humble and it was a great experience. - Umme Hani Haroon

Recently I had the chance to visit the old age home. The old age home was situated in outskirts of the city. When I entered the kingdom of the old age people, I felt a odd sensation in my stomach. We were asked to interact with the people staying there. In the beginning I was saying nothing to anybody as I was scanning the whole environment with my naked eye. We played games and interacted with them. Then we distributed the fruits we have brought for them. So totally it was a wonderful experience and I felt really peaceful there.

INTRODUCTION:
The outreach program of our class (3rd Semester P2) was scheduled on 18th September 2019. After a long wait were all set to visit this lovely place called the Holy Family Home for the aged. A bus was arranged by the college. We were accompanied by Ms Manjitha and Ms. Shiny. We bought a few essentials and groceries. As soon as we reached the place, the members in the home extended a warm welcome to all of us.

ABOUT THE SESSION
We had planned a few activities and programs to entertain them. The whole class sang a song to invoke the blessings of God. The next performance was a solo dance by Ayushi, who triggered the members of the house to dance, with her gracefulness. The solo dance gradually turned into a group dance. All the members were excited and cheered with enthusiasm for our performances. One affectionate grandmother offered to sing a song for us.

Simultaneously, we started interacting with the members of the house. It was a little strange and uncomfortable in the beginning but later we had to be forced to leave the place due to time constraints. It was so hard to bid farewell to those wonderful people. We became so attached to them in such a short span of time. Their cute poses for selfies, amazing teenage experiences, valuable advices and suggestions opened our eyes to the real world. Though they were abandoned by their loved ones, they did not express the slightest feeling for frustration or hatred towards them.

Miss Janet was the sweetest person we met in the house. She became one of us. Mostly because there was no language barrier.
There were a few more activities like beat boxing, solo singing. Everyone there enjoyed a classical dance performance by Sharath and Puravi. Snacks were distributed to all of them.
The vote of thanks was proposed by a sweet grandmother with all her love and blessings. We clicked photographs. We promised them that we would visit them often. It was really difficult to leave that place.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Kristu Jayanti College for providing such a wonderful opportunity. We consider ourselves blessed to have spent time with such beautiful people. We realised that love and happiness lies in places like The Holy Family Home for the aged.

The A.i.R Charitable Home and A.i.R. Transit Home were founded by AiR (Atman in Ravi), a renowned philanthropist, spiritualist, author, speaker, motivator and singer with the mission to serve the Suffering Humanity as Prayer to God.

Most of us tend to look the other way when we see someone suffering on the streets or lying abandoned in a corner on a road because we do not know what to do or where to take them or where to turn to for help. A.i.R. Charitable Home and A.i.R. Transit Home, run by A.i.R. Humanitarian Homes, a nonprofit organization, addresses this very concern. In fact, a 24/7 Emergency Helpline Number has been especially created where anyone can call and inform them about the whereabouts of such ailing, abandoned individuals. Once they ascertain the location, they ensure that medical aid reaches them, further they also admit them at the A.i.R. Charitable Home till they recover and regain lost health.

It was a meaningful day for each one of us. Hope this Programme inspires many to conduct and organize such programme in their own capacity.

Here’s a little-detailed description of the groceries contributed:
1. Rice 50 Kg (25 Kg white rice and 25 Kg boiled rice)
2. Sugar 5 Kg
3. Salt 5 Kg
4. Moong Dal 10 Kg
5. Gold winner sunflower oil 10 Lit
6. Chilli powder 5 Kg
7. Turmeric power 5 Kg

9. Chana Dal 5 Kg
10. Digestive biscuits 4 Kg

Feedback from the students:-
• We felt blessed by being a part of the Social Outreach Programme.
• We should visit again and extend our support.
• It has touched our heart and soul; we should work more for humans and extend our selfless service whenever we can.
• We request the college to extend the programme for a day, so that we can spend some more time.

Introduction
“The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.”
RVM Humanitarian home is a place for the poor and the homeless. Not only they are deprived of the simple comforts of life, but even basic amenities and essentials like clothes, food and healthcare. Some of them including the elderly and physically or mentally challenging have been abandoned on the streets. They need our empathy more than one sympathy. They need action and also require help from people like us. It has been 23 years since the institution has been carrying out this great responsibility.

Our Experience
We started off at 1:30 pm and reached there by 1:45 pm. The place had people of different age groups, from small children to men and women aged more than 60. We interacted with the people over there especially with the children. They seemed to be very happy when people talked to them and showed care and affection towards them.
The concerned authority told us that these people who were dumped in the railway stations, roads, etc. were brought to them by the police. She went on to say that the place was facing a shortage of things because the number of people there had outnumbered the maximum limit.

Sorrow & pity was filled in our minds, seeing their disabilities made us feel ever so grateful about the lives we had & also how we shouldn’t take any moments for granted. We engaged them in activities such as singing & dancing. Though we were strangers to them, but we made sure we give love as a family. The experience for us was humbling, as we have seen people who have nothing, still able to smile and on the other hand we students always seem to find things to complain in our lives.

Overview
This experience was definitely an eye opener for each one of us as college pupils. We the Bcom Professional students are so blessed and lucky to have been a part of this wonderful programme. And would be extremely glad for more opportunities like this. This experience helped us learn so much about the life of those people, and the difficulties they face in such an age.

Visit to Little Sisters of the Poor
Department of Commerce, Kristu Jayanti College Autonomous has taken the initiative of conducting various community engagement programme with an objective of meeting the demands of the deprived sections of the society, for e.g. slum children and adults who struggle to gain access to basic healthcare, education, safety, etc. Though we as an individual realize the need to work for society or do something for the needy, our busy lives keep us away from doing so. To address this concern, the commerce department teaching fraternity had decided to contribute towards a noble cause by making small donations starting from a minimum of Rs.100 by each individual every month. Every small donation becomes big enough to change the lives of many.

In connection with this, for the month of June, we have received a total contribution of Rs.4200.
