The 68th Independence Day of our nation was celebrated with much pride and fervour at Nirma University on August 15, 2014. The flag hoisting ceremony began at 9:30 am which was followed by the singing of the national anthem.
Justice Mr Ravi R Tripathi, Hon. Judge, High Court of Gujarat, was the Chief Guest for this special occasion. He urged us to keep the spirit of patriotism alive all through the year and not just confine it to a single day. Moreover, he emphasized on the judicious use of resources and appealed to us to act as responsible citizens. In this regard, we are reminded of these classic words : “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
