The international day of Happiness was celebrated by the department of Physics and Electronics on 20 March 2023. The department had organized an Essay writing Event for the students. The theme was, “How to be happy and make others happy without the use of
technology and digital devices”. The main objective of the event was to create an awareness among students that one can be happy even without smartphones or technology. The theme made them to think beyond their smart devices and social media, apps and websites.
A total of about 100 students participated in the event. The major things wrote in all the essays were, about spending time with family and friends in reality and not through video conferencing, going out with the family members, classmates to enjoy the nature, playing sports in the field not on phone screens, involving in some activities they like to do, continuing
their forgotten hobbies, etc. This activity made the students to think about enjoying in real world rather than being in virtual world.
Dr. Manoj B, Head, department of Physics and Electronics supported the activity and other faculty members also encouraged the students to participate in the event.
