This thunderous applause is a testimony to how dearly we love you here, Mr. Ramamoorthy.

I request our Head of Electrical department, Ms. Shobhna Saxena to present a bouquet of flowers to Mr. Ramamoorthy. Keep the applause going, folks! I request our Head of Mechanical department, Mr. Rajeev Mehta to present a bouquet of flowers to Dr. Shastry and Dr. Hegde.

As goes the age-old tradition of Ramasagar Institute of Technology, we will now light the auspicious lamp and flag off the event. I request Mr Ramamoorthy to do the honour, please.

These students from the mechanical engineering branch are the respective toppers from first, second, third and final years. Can we have these students on stage, one by one, as I call out their names? Show your support for your buddies. Give it up for Abhishek Thakur, Jayesh Patil, Sneha Ratnasubhash and Saurabh More.

The next prize from Mechanical engineering department goes to team MechaniKa for their exceptional work with the Formula one car prototype.

How befitting for the team to receive the prize from their mentor and guide, Mr Rajeev Mehta! Give a huge round of applause for Team MechaniKa.

Do I see the energy levels dropping? No, this isn’t acceptable, you better buckle up because next on stage is the ‘HipHoppers’ dance crew. Brace up for a groovy dance routine from the final year mechanical engineering students. Their radium laced outfits and flashy props will give you goosebumps. Scream out your love for the HipHoppers!

Entry 5:

Once more, once more! What an exhilarating performance. Of course, we all want to see it once more! Sadly, we are running short on time. It is now time to move on to the next segment of prizes. Let me call on stage, head of the electrical engineering department, Ms Shobhna Saxena to present the prizes for achievements in the electrical engineering department.

Join your hands together for your fellow classmates. Come up on stage Tanay Sankhe, Revati Gujar, Puneet Pandey and Rahil Kazi.

Now can we have on stage, our guest of honour, Mr Ramamoorthy to present ‘Student of the year’ award? This prestigious award is awarded to the student, who leads by example. The student of the year must be an all-round achiever in studies, projects as well as extracurricular activities. Only the best deserve this one.

Let me ask the students. Who according to you is the student of the year, twenty nineteen?

Is it Akshay? Is it Rucha? Or is it Ravi?

Yes, you guessed it right; it is Ravi Sawant from final year, civil engineering branch.
