Filled with pride for our country’s independence, we witnessed the hoisting of the flag by Dr. Barua and sang the national anthem. Louis Kahn Plaza has its own charm, no matter what time of the day or what the occasion. We then proceeded to the RJM Auditorium to be treated by some terrific performances, including our very own Bamboo Dance troupe. Three cheers for them for another *ossum* performance! Some of us are celebrating our country’s Independence Day among our very own people after many, many years. Moments like these are too precious to miss and are accompanied by a wave of feelings, thoughts, and emotions. What was special about this morning’s festivities was the level of inclusion – everyone from faculty, staff, students, and their families came together to be a part of this celebration – literally. Kudos to the IIMA community for making this happen!
