A moment that allows you to be a star: The Graduation Day!
Yes, Graduation Day is a segue into the realistic world. It signifies change, progression and exploration. This is a moment which the graduating students share and celebrate with their teachers, family and friends because they are the ones who can feel the joy and visualise the tough time that envelops their accomplishments. While this day takes the students into the memory lane of the busy mornings, moments of dashing into the classroom, the submission deadlines and hangout with friends, it also reminds them that it is a time to set their own time-line and carve their future. The degree of qualification is a piece of paper which proves that the student has the tolerance, patience, resilience and willingness to learn and grow.
I was indeed privileged to have attended the spectacle of the graduation day of my adorable sons. As life limped back to normal, it gave us the opportunity to travel to Arizona, USA, to see my sons graduate. The profound and fresh memories of their childhood made it hard to accept that we were crossing another threshold and entering a new phase of life. As I entered the hall, my eyes moistened to see the colourful fiesta and the ears rang with the jubilant music. I looked around to see the cheerful families and friends who adorned the hall. There was cheer and joy everywhere. My eyes were fixed on the large screens waiting to see my sons walk onto the stage and receive the honours.
The program commenced by unfolding the well-structured and planned events revealing punctuality as a virtue. Being a professor myself, what touched my emotions was the honour given to the teachers. The president invited the professors to be seated on the stage mentioning the importance of their flawless work. The spotlight on the teachers and the music that resonated the auditorium was spectacular. The spotlight then shifted on the senior alumni group who occupied the reserved seats opposite the stadium. The Veterans were revered. The parents were applauded for being a part of the most important moment. This was followed by the valedictorian speech which realistically pictured the special moments.
The auditorium rumbled with cheer and applause. The show remained lively and devoid of monotony as the new graduates came on the stage with their signature style. While one student flipped on the stage, there was another who did a twist. It was fun to watch and cheer the amazing moves. The grand finale made us speechless when the confetti, yellow balloons, and the colourful sparklers pampered the stars of that evening. It is an ever-lasting fiesta which can be retold. The faculty left the auditorium with decorum. The new graduates were in cloud 9. The astounding grandiose can never fade from a parent or their child’s memory.
