Institute Events , Students , Visiting VIPs
Institute Days in the 1960s were held to award prizes to students and staff who contributed to the Institute in various fields, including extra-curricular and academic fields.
During the Sixth Institute Day, Mr. M. Bhaktavatsalam (Chief Minister of Madras State and chief guest), distributed prizes to the students for academic distinction (1963-1964) as well as for various competitions organised by the Institute Gymkhana in the fields of sports, literary and other extra-curricular activities. It is not known to us what prize was won by Saraswathi Hostel during this event. The student in this photograph is yet to be identified.
