Independence Day is celebrated all over India with much pleasure. This day is of great importance to all Indian citizens as it gives us opportunity to remember all those freedom fighters who had sacrificed their lives just for giving us a beautiful and peaceful India.


Oakbrook Business School felt proud when it joined the rest of the nation in the celebration of our independence. The event was organized with great zeal and enthusiasm at campus, at 10 am with Mr. Tej Malhotra as its chief guest.

The event started with a welcome address by Ms. Shraddha Sheth, Project Head, OBS. She welcomed all the guests, dignitaries, staff and students to the celebration. This was followed by the auspicious flag hoisting ceremony by our chief guest, Mr. Malhotra. He is associated with the RSPL group as President (Greenfield Soda Ash Plant, Dwarka).


He motivated everyone with his powerful mantra: Never Ever Give Up keeping in mind: Simplicity, Speed, Strategy and Self-Confidence. He inspired students by sharing his life-experiences and guided them to gain practical knowledge rather than relying on the internet alone. He encouraged the feeling of patriotism and love to one’s country amongst students and one and all present at the event.

The cultural programs followed next, which included dance, singing, and mime. The performances given by the students were filled with patriotism and a lot of enthusiasm. The performances kept the audience glued to their seats.


Dr. Palak Sheth also made the day memorable with his ever-motivating words of Oakbrook’s success and development that it has made in the past and should aspire for in the near future. He always acts as a source of inspiration to OBS.

Dr. Sourbhi Chaturvedi, Director, OBS concluded the event by a vote of thanks. She thanked the chief guest for his valuable time and inputs. She appreciated and congratulated the staff for all the efforts and hard-work put in to make the event a successful one.

The day ended with light refreshments and lots of motivation and patriotism.
