The chief guest Abhishek Shetty addressed the gathering by saying “One year ago I did not know how to drive a car, I learnt to drive a car from SAITI. This is a technical institution. This institution builds up students technically. Behind all the work technicians play a very important role. You may be studying in different sectors and one day you will be placed in a job. Talent is a gift given to all by God. We don’t know what talents we have. We can showcase our talents by participating in the competitions. We go to different jobs, there should be sincerity in our job.”

The singing competition, dance competition and fashion show followed. 

Mahesh Kumar spoke a few words saying, “My career began in SAITI . I feel blessed to be here and I thank this institution for giving me an opportunity. Winning is not important, participating is important. Everyone has different talents and you have shown your talent by participating in today’s competitions. I felt happy to see you all participating in the competitions actively.” 

A karate performance was done by Navyalaxmi, a student of Electronics Mechanic 1st year. 

Roopashree Vorkady spoke a few words saying, “When I was a child I did know what acting is, today if I have grown in the cinema industry it’s because of my teachers who taught me acting. When I was in school I made use of all the opportunities. I was a backbencher in school. You have performed very well today. You may be studying in this institution today but you will grow by your talent. If we are with good people even we will be good. Let everyone get happiness in their life. When I see you all today I remember my school day.” 

A body show was done by Melrick Jaison Dsouza, a student of MRAC 1st year. 

Principal  Roshan Dsouza said, “Today the event Aloysius Fiesta 2K23 ends. You have enjoyed the event very well and participated actively. We intend that students should not only study but also get an opportunity to showcase their talents. We think, only if a student scores the highest marks in an exam he/she is talented. The staff members together have prepared lunch for you all today, this shows our love and affection towards you all.”
