And before making this aim a reality, we have a beautiful tradition of making the first years feel loved and wanted.

Who says heroes are found flying against gravity towards the sky, dressed in flowing capes and mysterious masks? Heroes of this world are found in classrooms. Yes, they are none other than our teachers. This year, students of PI: The Department of Mathematics organized an online Teachers' Day program to thank some of the most important people of our lives, the ones who impart knowledge and instruct us. Teachers are the doctors without stethoscope that every child in our country must have access to, to be able to cross his/her set of crevasses and walls. Second and third-year students participated in this event very heartily to honour our hardworking and loving teachers. The program commenced by welcoming all the teachers, followed by listening to the teachers' experience of their teaching life which was the cherry on the cake. The students planned a very amazing event, outstanding dance performances, melodious songs, musical instruments, funny and emotional poems to thank our teachers. Our teachers enjoyed this program very much and appreciated us for our efforts to make this online Teachers' Day memorable for them. At last, we all thanked our teachers from the bottom of our hearts for their selfless passion and hard work towards educating the future of this nation.
Not everything can be learnt from lectures, workshops and interactive sessions. At times what we, as students, learn more from are examinations and competitions, which not only test, but also strengthen our conceptual knowledge.
