Pragati Annual Day 2015

Created: Saturday, 02 January 2016

This is a day that holds a special place in our yearly calendar - the Pragati Annual Day. This is a day of celebration. We celebrate the accomplishments of Pragati Scholars, and the hard work of the Mentors through the year. Dec 20th was that big day. While the Mentors are the guiding force behind the organization of this joyful event, the stage is largely occupied by the Pragati Scholars with the wonderful exposition of their talents and interests. The audience consisting of mentors, scholars and their families was enthralled by the performances.

We were fortunate to have Mr Sekhar Gopalan as our chief guest. Having built a 350cr company, and now running a school in Doddaballapur under the NGO Svatantra, Mr Sekhar had invaluable lessons and advice to share with the audience. We were lucky to have his enthusiastic and wisdom-filled participation.

Kudos to the young Mentor brigade of Pragati who coordinated every aspect of the program - venue, audio, MC'ing, scholar performances, signage, refreshments, and a souvenir to commemorate the event. Putting all this together involves a lot of coordination and hard work, and they spared no effort to ensure the event was a grand success. 

Here is a glimpse of the action on this eventful day, which I'm sure will make you wish you were there.
