SLS Mirror July - August 2017 - Page 3

Editorial July was a fresh start for freshers and an experienced start for the sophomores! The month of July made a mark on the history of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University with Dr. Nigam Dave being awarded with Colonel rank by NCC for executing a compulsory NCC exposure course for 1st year students. The zealous start set the standard for rest of the months for more accolades and appreciation. With new aspirations, hopes and utmost positive vibes the foundation is set for more creative layers of bread icing and garnishing ingredients on 2017-18 cake. Moreover, India celebrated its 71st Independence Day this August. On this day, we feel proud again. Proud of the resistance we showed, proud of the freedom we achieved, and proud of how much we have grown. The growth of our nation is reected in our economic progress, military might, and our technological advancement. We have the largest youth population in the world and hence, the greatest potential. The kinds of activities that took place in PDPU this August reect what can and will bring us, the youth, to reach our maximum. Our foreign friends brought liveliness to the campus with the AIESEC cultural showcase, and needless to mention, all of PDPU came together for the goosebump – giving Independence Day Celebration! Happy reading! 1
