The Pongal (harvest festival) celebration at LIBA on 12th January 2023, was filled with great joy, tradition, grandeur, colors and gratitude towards Mother Nature. The festivities revolved around the theme: LEGACY (Learning, Ethnicity, Gratitude, Appreciation, Celebration and Yield). The celebrations started with a procession led by Rev. Fr. C. Joe Arun, SJ, Director-LIBA along with Prof. M.J. Xavier, Chair – Centre for Technology and Innovation (CTI). A Pongal making competition was held for the students and faculty and cash prizes were given to the winners. Traditional games like Uriadi and tug of war added to the excitement with the main aim of understanding the significance of this festival in Tamil Nādu. It also instilled the responsibility of inheriting and continuing the tradition of expressing appreciation and gratitude to the farmers and devotion to Mother Nature.
