Shriya Tupe shared her thoughts on Forgiveness and the importance of the event. Forgiving a person means letting go of all the bitterness we hold for someone and fill our hearts with love and compassion. A famous proverb quotes, ‘It is human to err, it is divine to forgive’. Likewise, human nature is not all good and, at the same time, all bad. We all respond to a situation in our ways, and that makes us good or bad in people’s eyes. We all have different life experiences, some favorable and other not-so-favorable. But the most magnificent kind-hearted gesture we can owe to someone is to forgive them. As beloved Dada said, “Keep on forgiving until it hurts, at least forgive as many times as you would wish to be forgiven by God.”

Dr. Divya Lakhani, in her HOD’s address, presented her views on the importance of the day, the need to be more empathetic and understanding and being dedicated to goodness in yourself and others.

She thanked all the participants for making the event a success. The event was well captured with photos and video.
