The Context:

Memories are the moments that last forever with us. The college takes initiatives to preserve the memories of the employee in the institution. The college intends to share sweet memories of the employee with others.
The college encourages employees to share emotions, feelings, thoughts and happiness of one another. Therefore the college collects the information and keeps the record of the individual employee who is going to retire.
Bridge of Friendship is one of the media for the employees to discuss social issues through personal events and incidents. Bridge of Friendship is also useful to promote educational activities. Events and achievements even though at small scale on the part of the employee.


Practice / mechanism of organization and implementation:

This is also a unique practice run exclusively in our college to enrich the knowledge of teaching and non teaching staff. The college has been publishing Bridge of Friendship magazine for a long time. A committee has been formed under the chairmanship of Principal to organize and implement the process. A coordinator has been appointed.
The coordinator is assisted by another teacher. They are given the responsibility to gather necessary data of the employee who is going to retire. Both of them together search photos, information of family background, experience, achievements, and awards of the employee.
They ask other employees to write article and maintain the record. The other employees get a chance to express personal opinion; they disclose the special moments they have spent together; they analyze the nature of the employee through poem or article; they throw light on the relationship between the employee and students.
Thus, vivid traits & secrets of the character of the employee are opened.
Thus, the college cherishes the memories and the moments spent with the person who is going away in coming days and will take send off from us. This is our soft way to offer our best wishes for his/her future life.
