Svagatam ‘22

Covid19 had disrupted education like many other fields and sectors. Institutions sidestepped most of the issues. For instance, teaching-learning continued unhindered, thanks to online facility. Yet, there were certain setbacks, one of which was the absence of social interactions. Cultural events, competitions, seminars, etc. were all online. At ASE Chennai, Susvagatam, an induction programme for the freshers, was conducted online in 2020 and 2021. With the resumption of offline classes, it regained significance when it was conducted at the Amritamayi Auditorium on 29th April 2022.
Svagatam ’22 was a day-long programme organised by the students of III CSE. It celebrated talents, while providing scope for student interactions. It commenced with the lighting of the lamp by Sri I B Manikantan, Director, Dr P Shankar, Principal, Dr V Jayakumar, Chairperson – Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Dr Vinata Sai, Chairperson – Science and Humanities, Dr V G Shreehari, Amrita Darshanam, along with student representatives from III CSE – Sanjay T, P Vishal and Vaishnavi Lakshmi, II ECE – R V Sai Keerthi, and II CCE – Aravindakshan.
R V Sai Keerthi’s divine rendition of the Dhyana Shloka set the events in motion. What followed was an energetic and enthusiastic string of performances – songs and dances, by the following students:

1. Pragathi B, Vaishnavi K, Suraj Asa, D Sashank, D Sukrith, V Srikar, and D Dhanunjay – III CSE
2. Hiran Sai and Likhit – III MEE
3. Rampa Keerthana, Alap Arun, and G Abhishek – II CYS

The afternoon witnessed a change in entertainment with the fun quotient remaining constant. A Treasure Hunt was organised by Sanjay T, Sanjai Siddharthan, Jayanth Vikash, Xavier Emmanuel, and Yashas Gowda of III CSE A. Hidden treasures sent the teams scurrying around the campus (unmindful of the blazing Sun), while mentally unravelling the cryptic clues. Around 15 teams battled to outwit each other and the triumphant team that outdid and outpaced the rest in an awe-inspiring finish comprised the following members:

Treasure Hunt Winners: II CYS
Enaganti Karun Kumar
Narayana Datta Sai Manikanta

P Vishal, III CSE A, anchored the event deftly, in characteristic serenity amidst the rapturous celebrations around him. The day provided a welcome reprieve for the students, who pulled out all the stops to make the event a roaring success.
