71st Independence Day was celebrated at all the campuses of Symbiosis International University with great enthusiasm. At the Lavale, Pune campus, the Hon'ble Vice Chancellor Dr. Rajani Gupte unfurled the National Flag in presence of all the Students, Teaching and Non-Teaching staff. In her inspirational speech she stated that we celebrate Independence day every year, but we also need to look back and think what were the dreams of the great freedom fighters who laid down their lives for making India free. Today when we look around us, we notice poverty, illiteracy, poor health. If we, in turn to honour the memory of the patriots, help to eradicate any one or all of these, then we can contribute in our own little way.
