Varma, Resident Director, GITAM University, Hyderabad Campus, said the children deserved a good time on the campus and should feel that the experience was worth their long travel. He has been witness to this annual event for the past decade and always felt happy and inspired about the spirit of the MBA students.
Sri Murthy, Hostel Manager, ‘T springs house’, who participated in the event as a Guest of Honor, remarked that due to the benevolent nature of our tradition we never had orphans in the past. It is only when we forgot our traditional values, our society starting producing orphans. He was happy that the students of HBS were reviving the noble tradition of giving and spreading the joy of it.
