On Sunday, 21st August 2022, KIET Group of Institutions, Delhi NCR was adorned with National Happiness Unicorn Awards at Kanha Shanti Vanam, Hyderabad. The event was embraced by the presence of 10,000 attendees from across the nation.
These awards, authorized by AICTE, in association with YourOneLife and Heartful campus, are meant to recognize the happiest institutions in India, and KIET was one of them.
Being overwhelmed, Dr. A Garg, Director, KIET Group of Institutions, said “Happiness drives a good character, mental health, and resilience. Hence, as an institution, we should always focus on reducing the intolerance and depression among students, and boosting the happiness quotient among them.” “Taking into consideration, the importance of happiness in modern life, we introduced Happiness/ value education cell that educates our students as well as our faculty members about the importance of life, mindfulness, peace, productivity, and overall well-being. This is the reason why we have also been felicitated with ‘Institution of Happiness’ Award by QS I-GUAGE during the Academic Excellence Conclave (12 May’22)”, he added.
Prof Sahasrabudhe, Chairman of AICTE, said “The digital invasion in the lives of students is impacting their attention spans and slicing, dicing and tossing their minds in the cauldron of social media. We have approved YourOneLife for introduction in the Indian academics, thanks to the NEP.”
The Member of Legislative council Nizamabad, Mrs. K. Kavitha, was the honorable chief guest at the event. She said, “While Telangana is turning the tide, and we realize the need to create a strong rib cage that can withhold the growing aspirations and per capita income within the state. We realize the importance to do that with an equally strong commitment to ensure that happiness and heartfulness form the foundation of this growth.”
The event was not just grand, but a successful venture, wherein nation-wide directors and Vice Chancellors from various institutions participated including the Director, KIET Group of Institutions.
