Pandit Deendayal Birth Centenary Year Celebrations The event organized on August 26, 2017 by SLS under Pandit Deendayal Birth Centenary Celebrations was to bring awareness of the high ideals and values that Pandit Deendayalji gave to the world. It was also a small effort to work on the concept of ‘Antodaya’, something that the School of Liberal Studies has been passionately following working with slum dwellers, bootlegger women and rural poor. 118 girls of MP Arts and MH Commerce College for Women, which is run by Mahipatram Rupram Ashram, were invited by the event coordinator Ms. Neeta Khurana to visit PDPU. These girls come from underprivileged backgrounds and the exposure visit was to enable them to dream different. A workshop on tie and Dye by Ms. Pravina Mohicha was also organized for the student group to impart some skill set which could be useful to them. The students were also given a campus tour assisted by the interns of Audit Program and after having breakfast at the PDPU Cafeteria they visited Pandit Deendayalji’s Statue and the Archives section of Pandit Deendayal in the SLS library before heading for the lecture followed by the tie and dye workshop. 21
