At the most enchanted time of the year, when we were about to step into a new year, it was the perfect time to cherish the beautiful memories of the year and show our gratitude to those who made the journey in the last year more productive and memorable with their efforts and love. In line with the stated objective, the Human Values & Counseling Cell came up with a week-long celebration, “Count on Your Blessings,” a gratitude-giving week from December 22 to 28, 2022. The activity was organised for all the students across batches and courses at Asian School of Business. The activity was divided into three phases, which included Secret Santa, the Christmas of Gratitude, and Grat-o-Prof.
Within the first phase, i.e., Secret Santa, the students brought gifts for underprivileged students and made their Christmas merrier. Those gifts included stationery, chocolates, and other items that every child hopes to receive for Christmas.
During the second phase, i.e., “The Christmas of Gratitude,” students celebrated their Christmas with gratitude, a feeling where they expressed their gratefulness towards good. The students decorated the Christmas tree with handwritten notes and messages of gratitude for the beautiful memories they built this year and expressed their gratitude towards all the noble souls who indeed made their year a happy journey.
In the final or third phase, i.e., Grat-o-prof, students were given a chance to perform and express their gratitude to their professors with innovative presentations. Students could take any form of presentation, like poem recitation, dance, music, paintings, role play, etc. The activity provided students with the opportunity to practise expressing gratitude and also motivated the faculties to put in more effort to bring about a change in the lives of new learners.
The activity turned out to be a mesmerizing and cherishing event for students and professors. The presentations showed the creativity and innovation of the students. There was joy on everyone’s face as everyone contributed a little on their part to make this Christmas merrier and more blissful. The activity brought a sense of soulful joy and celebration to everyone in the ASB family.
