I’m used to giving speeches. Birthday speeches, farewell speeches, program about our college speeches, and the list goes on. But this is going to be a first, and something I’ll enjoy doing. Fresher’s speeches. When I looked at all of you, and I gaze into your poor souls, err…sorry, bright faces, I am reminded of the time last year when I was just a mere fresher in the college. I’m not going to be a grandpa and start recollecting stories of the past to bore you all, but instead, this day will mark as a start to your official journey into making your own stories that you can later dream upon.
Welcome to Benignora Twenty-Sixteen. You all might have wondered what the term Benignora actually means? We had the same doubts to. Word of mouth suggested to us that our super-duper seniors selected the name because it apparently meant ‘New Beginning’ in Spanish. 5 minutes of Google Search later, this myth was debunked. The truth is, it really doesn’t mean anything. And yet, we have it, only cause of the significance it was created for… ‘New Beginning’. We follow the very same tradition, a mistake we are proud of, a language we have created. Benignora is the official welcoming of our new year students to the CSE Department, or rather… CSE Family.
