AYUDH Celebrates Diwali at Paripally

AYUDH Celebrates Diwali at Paripally

“As the world desperately needs Men who care more about others than themselves; few of our students are certainly going to be a promising future”. On October 23, 2016, more than 160 students of Amritapuri campus joined the AYUDH team in spending half a day of a warm Sunday with the poor and orphaned kids of Paripally Orphanage, Kollam. After the inaugural address by Dr. S. N. Jyothi, the Principal of Amrita School of Engineering, the children greeted the visiting team through gracious folk dances and a variety of other mind catching performances. As the cultural programs concluded, all the students of Paripally now teamed with the students from Amritapuri campus had a try on the “Tug of War” competition held at the ground. The team ensured that the day was festive with the children been given sparklers and firecrackers to celebrate the festival of lights, and a sumptuous Diwali dinner. When the sounds of the firecrackers subsided, when the music of dance stopped, when all the joyous uproar’s melted down, only the feeling of togetherness and the bonding of a family remained. Tears drizzled down the edge of every eyes’ as our students started leaving. We left with hearts overflowing with love, delight, immersed in the feeling of gratitude, happiness and fulfilment.
