“Celebrate endings, for they precede new beginnings.”
On 31st December, 2019 Jaipuria Institute of Management Lucknow, celebrated New Year’s Eve in a spectacular way. A Bonfire night was organized, ending this year together with some music and snacks. The event was organized by Student Excellence Council and Mr. Omesh Srivastava, Assistant Manager, Student Excellence Council under the guidance of Dr. Shubhendra Singh Parihar, Dean Student Affairs. Host for the night Ms. Priyanka Tripathi announced the beginning of the event.
The New Year is celebrated all over the world with great enthusiasm and fun. Earlier, it was a Roman calendar, which was having only ten months and designated 1st march as the New Year. In the Gregorian calendar, there are 12 months in every year and the New Year falls on January 1st, which is widely accepted and celebrated the festival.
Not only that various, interesting games were panned out like Musical chairs game, statue dance etc. To give it a musical touch Mr. Aditya along with Mr. Utkarsh Mr. Qazi, and Ms. Nondini from junior batch and Mr. Vijay, Mr. Chirag Mr. Ankush, Ms. Shivangi Agnihotri and Akshay sir from senior batch presented the audience with their soulful music.
The bonfire light, harboring an immense feeling of power amongst students like the caged fury of the flames, that one tiny insignificant match could ignite such a roaring blaze. To regard every day as the beginning of your new, better, and happier life. Starting every day of the year with feelings of happiness and with the anticipation that great and wonderful things are going to happen.
“Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.”– Oprah Winfrey
The night had only one intent, which was to convey that regardless of your circumstances, begin every day of the year with a smile, hope and expectations. Every day, restate your goals and your decisions for your new, happy and successful life. At the same time, be open to new ideas and opportunities, and for ways to achieve your goals. If you look at each day as new beginning, you will feel happier, more energetic and more motivated.
At the end of the event, Prof. Parihar along with other faculty members cut the cake and then the food was arranged for everyone. With this the beautiful night came to an end with hope filled that every coming day is a new beginning. Treat it that way. Stay away from what might have been, and look at what can be.
