Ambedkar Jayanti Celebrations under KalpaVriksh Lecture Series 1
KalpaVriksh - Birthing Action from Ideas, a lecture series on ideas of influential personalities was
instituted by College of Home Science, Nirmala Niketan, to expose students to varied valuable thought
processes to learn from.
The first of the series was held in college hall on 12th April, 2019, on the eve of Ambedkar Jayanti, in
commemoration of the values of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution.
The guest speaker was Mr. Sachin Bansode, the Mumbai President of the Republican Bahujan Vidhyarthi
He spoke eloquently on "Dr. Ambedkar - A visionary and Leader", providing the audience into glimpses
of Dr. Ambedkar's life values.
This was followed by a student presentation on "Women's Rights - The Reality versus the Constitutional
Provision". The FYBSc students put up three presentations - a narration, a skit and a poem rendition, all
which were very well appreciated. The skit on Women's Empowerment was judged to be the best and
will be awarded a Certificate of Merit at the Valedictory function.
Another highlight of the programme was the book release of Slim Software, a book edited by Mrs.
Prajakta Mhaprolkar, the librarian of the college, a matter of immense pride for all of us.
