The inactive college campus seemed back to its normal self after the pandemic effects as the enthusiastic staff, students and the management of St Aloysius PU College witnessed the most beautiful twin celebrations in the form of 72 nd Republic Day and the Investiture and oath taking ceremony of the newly elected students' president and the students representatives for the various associations of the college. The energetic and colourful programme was held in the college premises at 9am.

The programme began with the welcoming of the special guests of the programme. Chief guest Mr. Prakash Director of Deccan Herald and Prajawani - Davangere along with Fr. Eric Mathias SJ - director of the college, Mr Sunny Gudinho - principal, Mrs. Pushpalatha Urs and Ms. Princy Flavia Pinto - Vice-principals and Ms. Al Jesina Ms. Diksha Naik co- ordinators were present on the dais. The students, staff and the management took part in the most awaited, first public celebration of the college for the academic year 2020-21. It was unique for many reasons and was a spectacle.

The whole programme was well-tailored and had a good mixture of interesting events such as dance, speeches, play and singing performed by the students of the college.

The NCC cadets escorted the chief guest Mr. Prakash and the other guests to the beautifully decorated stage. The gathering welcomed the guests with jubilant applause. The chief-guest was then invited to hoist the flag to commemorate the 72 nd Republic Day celebration after which the National anthem was sung by the august gathering with real patriotic gusto. The inter-religious prayer led by the students gave the perfect start for the programme followed by lighting of the lamp by the guests. The students welcomed the guests and the gathering by their graceful dance and Ms. Varsha the second PUC students expressed it by well-tailored words. The patriotic song awoke us from the slumber and gave us proud feeling for being Indians.

The chief-guest Mr. Prakash was then felicitated as our mark of respect. Later the students who achieved great feet and the distinction holders of our college in the year 2019-20 were also felicitated during the programme.

The students' president elect along with other council members and leaders of various associations and students' representatives were initiated into their respective offices after the oath taking ceremony.

The chief-guest of the programme spoke at length and enumerated the distinct qualities of our nation, enthused and encouraged our students to be pro-active in contributing generously towards building a better nation for everyone. He also encouraged them to dream and to have the courage to achieve it. The dance and the skit performed by our students were the highlight of the programme as they were entertaining and educative on constitutional rights of every individual and the current burning farmers' issues.

The college principal was highly appreciative of the students' various performances on-stage and off-stage. He also acknowledged the hard work put up by all the teaching and non- teaching staff members towards such a wonderful event. He also made the students aware of the current issues of our nation by sighting examples of unjust treatments meted to those who strive to work for truth and stand by truth. The programme was concluded with the vote of thanks by the programme anchor Mr Khushi, the 1 st year PUC student.

Students helped in re-arranging of the things and they were distributed sweets before they left the college.
