Inter Class Competition based on Children’s Day
Children's Day is celebrated across India to increase awareness about the rights, education, and welfare of children. It is celebrated on 14 November every year on the birthday of the First Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Known as 'Chacha Nehru' among children, Nehru advocated for children to have an all-rounded education that would build a better society in the future. Nehru considered children as the real strength of a nation and the foundation of society.
The Department of Professional Accounting & Finance organized D’Enfant Children’s Day on 17th November 2021, with the theme “awakening the child within you”. As adults, people tend to get so entangled with the worldly affairs and leave their childhoods behind, losing out on their ability to live in the moment. There is a child in every being and lets bring out the child in us to have a fuller life. With this intent, a competition was conducted under the guidance of Prof. Litty Mariyam Kunju by the student coordinators- Jiya Babu and Kevin Joseph.
