Indian Institute of Management, Rohtak, celebrated India's 64th Republic Day by unfurling the tricolour amidst celebrations which saw the enthusiastic attendance of all the faculty and staff members along with their families and the students. The flag was hoisted by the Director of IIM-R, Prof. P. Rameshan, which was immediately followed by singing of the national anthem.

The atmosphere was high on patriotism as all the students, united as one force, paid their respects to the flag which waved against the wind in all its pride. On this occasion the Director in his address reminded the students that the freedom that we enjoyed was the sovereign right of every Indian citizen but we, as responsible Indians, should handle it conscientiously and not ask for absolute freedom. The IIM-R family was also joined this year by Major Samrat, who, in his address, urged the students to always stand united and make the future of India their topmost priority.

On the occasion of the 63rd Republic Day Anniversary, IIM-R also celebrated the first anniversary of Swabhav, which is a social development initiative undertaken to empower the girl child. The proponents of this idea, Mr Rajat Gupta, Mr Vikram Dahiya and Mr Vikas Khandekar, IIM-R students, were also excited to see that the idea that they had started on this very day one year ago was slowly gaining momentum. They had also invited few of the girls, whom Swabhav supports, and their fathers, who work as rickshaw drivers, to participate in the event.It was encouraging to see that the IIM-R family had unanimously embraced them and they in turn had become one with all. Rajat took this moment to urge all the IIM-R students to continue extending their support to this intiative and to make this a national momentum in the days to come.
