International Mother Language Day &

International Mother Language Day was observed at Symbiosis Centre for Information Technology, on 21st February, 2018. The faculty members and the students came together, to celebrate their own mother tongue and embrace other languages of our diverse country.

As part of the celebration, an essay competition was organized for the students. The participants were asked to write on ‘The need and role of youth in mother language promotion’, in their respective mother tongue. It was a very nostalgic moment since most of them had not written in anything in their mother tongue in a long time. In the later half of the day, cultural activities in regional languages were organized. The students sang songs and gave speeches in their own mother tongue, and instilled a spirit of cultural diversity. The faculty members also joined the event and spoke in their mother tongue. The day ended in a jubilant note as everyone felt connected to their roots, and united in the diversity.
