BENGALURU: After the Kargil War and Swachh Bharat, Sapathagiri College of Engineering on Friday themed its pre-Independence Day celebrations, Trivarna Utsav 2020, around corona warriors.
A 4,000 sqft Trivarna Flag, designed by 50 students and100 faculty members, was put together in three days in the open-air auditorium using four tonnes of salt, 400kg flowers, 250kg colours.
Twelve people, including a doctor, nurse, policeman, pourakarmika and an ambulance driver, were felicitated on behalf of the college community during the event. A skit was performed by the faculty underlining the importance of corona warriors.
H Ramkrishna, college principal, said, “Our idea behind this year’s theme was to salute the brave people out there selflessly helping everyone in the city in their own little way.”
S Soumya, who is pursuing fourth year of engineering, said, “I have witnessed this celebration for four years. Something about this year was fun, despite restrictions such as wearing a mask and social distancing. We started working at 7am on Friday and could not be happier about how the smoothly the celebrations were conducted.” Very few students were asked to assist in this year’s celebrations due to social-distancing norms.
Amit Patil, another student, said, “It was an absolute delight being a part of this year’s celebrations. I’m so glad we could acknowledge and appreciate the efforts of people who are there for citizens almost round the clock.”
The event ended with the national anthem. The flag will be hoisted on Saturday on the college premises.
