Inspired by the message given by the Hon. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Hon. Principal Dr. P.V. Rasal decided to put this dream into reality.

He advised the faculty to organize such a kind of lecture series in the college by having a good use of existing seminar hall in the college. The committee for conducting this big programme was formed with the chairman of the Staff Academy. The time table was prepared well in advance. The groups according to the departments were prepared to pick up the responsibility to carry out the programme successfully. The whole department has to perform the duty as an organizing committee on the specific day. Each faculty member had to play different role such as compere, proposing vote of thanks, introducing the chief guests, publicity etc. The tentative schedule was prepared. All the teaching staffs were made mandatory to present in the programme. The online broadcasting of the programme was made available so as to some faculty could join the programme.  The speakers touched various subjects like history, environment, economics, commerce, Indian Constitution, Science and sports. This made the series a kind of interdisciplinary programme. The speakers were felicitated by offering a flower and a book.
