The spectacular ceremonial parade at Laxmibhai Maidan despite a heavy downpour only reiterated the indomitable spirit of Proud Banasthalites.

To a thunderous round of applause hitting the Richter scale of 8, Sri Dalmia announced the award of 51 Scholarships (17 per year) and Rs 5 Crores to Banasthali. In his speech, Dalmiaji reiterated that the Panchmukhi Shiksha – the fivefold education evolved over decades at Banasthali which imparts wisdom, character and discipline in enrolled students was worth emulating by other institutions and pointed out that linking salary of students in placements was not the right approach for ranking of educational institutions.
