Noida: Redolent of the great times at the Asian School of Media Studies, each student of the last batch and the current one lit an earthen lamp on arrival at the ‘Diya ceremony’ held in their honor at the campus here this evening. This was the time when the students were the distinguished guests and were termed as the ambassadors of their alma mater to carry the light of academic illumination into their professional career.
The ASMS Rhythm created magic with its medley of Hindi film songs which brought the zing in the function with some students tapping their feet and swaying themselves with the beat of the drummer. The band comprised Shresth Saha, Sumit Raina, Neelkanth Pathak, Vivek Massey and Tushaar Majumdar.
The function, marking the thanksgiving of ASMS and the new voyage of the students, ended up in a sumptuous dinner spread-over which the students and the teachers were seen in animated conversations recalling the great moments of the past days .
Asian Education Group President, Sandeep Marwah showered praises of goodness on the students and said that they had become part of the ASMS family. “ Go and conquer the world, it’s at your feet and always fare well in life, this is my short prayer for you all, ” he added to a resounding applause in a crescendo which went louder when he recited a couplet which has become almost a signature in his speeches.
Former governor of Assam and Chief Guest Syed Sibtey Razi called upon the students to emulate the great ideals of eminent personalities and contribute their creative work towards the betterment of the society.
Addressing the gathering, ASMS Director-General Dr. A.K. Srivastava said that it was a proud moment for the teaching faculty that its students were on the threshold of settling down in their careers while some had grabbed covetous jobs in television and film production houses and newspapers.
