Inception of a New Era: AASRA

, the social service wing of NITRKL, famous for its motto and objective of service to the underprivileged sections of the society, is all set once again to awaken the new and dashing intellect entries of this elite institute.
For the purpose of introducing and addressing the enthusiasts in these areas, members of AASRA organised an ORIENTATION PROGRAMME, on 1st August, 2014 in LA-114.

The event started at 5:30 pm with a few participants at the beginning but as time passed, the room was so crowded that some of the viewers had to struggle to see the event and the presentation which was mesmerising as well as inspiring. The programme started with a video that gave a glance of the ground zero living conditions of the still unlucky sections of the society. It was then followed by a power point presentation, introducing AASRA, and hence led to a journey, passing through description of the work and the life that an AASRAite has! Introducing the workplaces, inspiring videos on poverty and the need of education, their main motive and objectives then followed.
The event was graced by the presence of the Faculty Advisor, Prof S.K.Das, Electronics and Communication Department and Prof S.N.Alam, Metallurgical and Materials engineering. The words of the faculties emphasising on field work and the one-to-one service to the society inspired the freshers.

The main charm was interaction with the freshers and the kids from different workplaces who were heartily invited to be a part of this wonderful journey. The kids were felicitated for their outstanding performance in academics.
Even though the event suffered a major electricity problem, but the members smartly managed it by gathering the crowd in the LA garden converting it into an open-air theatre. The event then proceeded smoothly in the moonlight with mobiles blazing all over the LA garden.
The event stirred the hearts of many and so was a great success. Inspired by the event, a hundred people joined hands with AASRA and are now set on the journey to enlighten others.
“The New Era Begins, with loads of dedication and responsibilities towards the society.” AASRA had been, has and will continue to spread smiles among the under privileged.
