International Mother Tongue Day

Languages, full of complex implications for individuality, communication, social integration, education and development bear strategic importance for both people and planet. Every year International Mother Language Day is observed on 21st February to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism.

To take pride in our mother tongue that teaches us to speak, to express, and to think, we, the entire family of Brainware University celebrate the day with full enthusiasm and passion. This year too, we organized a little event with active participation from our teachers and students.

The inaugural ceremony was commenced through light kindling ritual by our honorable Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Subrata Kumar Dey, and Registrar, Ms. Mahua Pal. Both our respected VC and Registrar then delivered a short speech signifying the importance of language and why we should celebrate this day. After that we held one minute condolence for all those brave-heart soldiers, recently martyred in Pulwama terror-attack in Kashmir.

Then began the main programme; students skillfully presented dance, drama, singing, and speech- all showing respect to their mother tongue. Every performance carried a message in its own to teach us why we should respect each language and remove the barriers lying among them.

The hour-long programme ended in a happy note through the presentation of two dramas, directed and performed by students. The message was- language is not just a medium for communication, but an emotion that binds us all together.

Highlight of the Month

Annual Sports Day

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

The old nursery rhyme is still relevant with the extra-curricular activities that we pursue in our university alongside the academic curricula. To give students a fresh air outside the monotonous everyday life, every year we arrange the sports day, the time when we celebrate enthusiasm, activity as well as greater unity.

This year too we have organized the sports day with full energy and passion to bring forward the talent of students in different types of outdoor sports.

All the teaching and the non-teaching staffs have been present there to participate in the event and cheer up the players as well.

There were different types of games and activities- 100m run, 400m run, shot-put, tug of war, and many others. Winners in every category are rewarded with memento, certificate of appreciation, and most importantly, with big applause. To keep students energetic whole day long, we have had a special arrangement of healthy and nutritious tiffin.

We celebrate the annual sports day every year with some basic objectives in mind:

  • To encourage students’ potentiality in sport activities.
  • To develop a culture of friendly competition.
