Christmas 2019 was celebrated at SFIMAR on 23rd of December, 2019 in campus. This event was organized for all SFIMAR teaching and non-teaching staff; officially inaugurated by the Chairman, with greetings from Director, and a warm Christmas message from the Guest of Honour, Fr. David. This was followed by the traditional Christmas cake-cutting ceremony, high-tea and plenty of mouth-watering snacks. All had a fun time for sure! The event lasted for about an hour and half. And if they thought, that was the end of it; they were all in for more surprise and fun! What followed was a grand ‘Christmas Ball’ starting from 7 pm onwards, along with the first and second year students. That said, there were many more ‘special guests’ for the evening. They were the St. Francis boys’ inmates; who played a wonderful band to the tunes of traditional Christmas carols. Christmas carols, by the first year students were also sung, which were followed by charity activities, a special-starrer ‘Christmas Santa’ coming-in, to distribute sweets and set the Christmas mood for the rest of the evening. Cake and wine, and finger-licking snacks were distributed to all, to cater to hungry tummies! What followed for the rest of the evening was fun and more fun, with song and dance, games, and a hearty dinner. Christmas 2019 will be one to remember for years to come, by one and all that made the evening memorable indeed!
On the pious occasion of “Navratri”, students of SFIMAR arranged a Dandiya Night on 11th Oct. 2019 in the campus. With the beat of Dandiya sticks and Melody Tunes from the DJ, the campus shimmered in the glorious celebration. The décor gelled very well with the impeccably attired students and the traditional Gujarati ambiance of the venue. The crowd grooved and moved along to several electrifying Bollywood numbers, Gujarati and popular songs throughout the evening.
The celebration ended with a prize distribution ceremony wherein the Best Traditionally Dressed Participant (Male/Female), Best Dancer(Male/Female), Best Dancer Jodi and the Best Non-Stop Performer of the evening from students, were felicitated by Dr. Natika Poddar, Three Year Part-Time MMS (Marketing/Financial Management) Degree Program Programme Head and Prof. Shilpa Peswani, MMS Academic Coordinator at SFIMAR.
