SRC proudly salutes Womanhood

Just imagine having two jobs at one time. Different commitments and expectations would make it so tough. Now multiply that by 3, and those are the situations that the woman of today faces. A mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, a friend – you name it; the Indian woman plays that role with great panache too. The woman of today is torn between the societal constraints and her own desire to embrace modernity. To celebrate this miracle, the Social Responsibility cell of XIMB celebrated Woman’s Day – a gentle reminder that despite the gentle and soft demeanour, the firm resolve of the woman of today is unshakeable.

This day should be celebrated with oaths by all sects of society. Men – to realize that without women, progression of society is impossible and for women to stand up with even more resolve to eliminate the societal gap. The achievements of women should be highlighted to spark the revolution in women. Ultimately, the day should serve as a constant reminder that the woman of today is here to stay and become even stronger.

Team SRC celebrated International Women’s Day, 8th March, 2011 by conducting a Poster making competition called “Express Yourself”, for the first year students of both BM and RM. The overwhelming response that was received in terms of enthusiasm, creativity respect and gratitude shown by the participants was indeed heart-warming. The magnificent artwork comprising of slogans, messages and paintings, was judged by our esteemed professor Peppin, and BM- Section A emerged as the winner.

To commemorate love and joy, the festival of Holi is celebrated throughout India with a carnival of colours. This opportunity was taken by SRC to spread a little joy and love to the young children at the orphanage in Salia Sahi, Bhubaneswar. Members of SRC reached the orphanage with colours and sweets for the children. The children were quite overjoyed to see this and readily came forward to play with a lot of enthusiasm. They happily applied colours on each other and on the SRC members. After playing for sometime, sweets were distributed among the children which was consumed gladly within no time. But it does not end there. The event also saw these young children performing song and dance routines for everyone else to see. It was quite a pleasure to see such amazing talent among such young children. Finally on their request, some of the SRC members also pitched in with the singing and dancing alongwith them, making it quite a memorable experience, both for them as well as the members.

Initiatives of such kind make us realize that how the small things in life can actually bring in so much happiness. Seeing all the young faces lit up with smiles and then bidding adieu with a request from their side to visit them again makes one realize how a little effort from our side goes a long way in bringing some joy to these love-deprived children.
