The event's introductory remarks were made by Mr. Arna Raj Silwal, Chairperson of Padmashree College. The honorable chief guest, Dr. Mahabir Pun, who is the chair of the National Innovation Center and a social entrepreneur and activist, graced the program. Dr. Pun's keynote address focused on the future of Nepal's educational system.
Likewise, the event also included Mr. Ravindra Nath, the Padmashree College's Managing Director and Principal, and Ms. Sunita Silwal, the College's director. Mr. Jimmy Lama, ED of HELP, Dr. Tika Bahadur Karki, Professor at Ku and Former DG of Department of Food Technology and Quality Control, Mr. Sushil Gawali, Former CEO of National Reconstruction Authority, Dr. Ram Hari Lamichhane, Former DG of Colombo Plan Staff College, and Former Member Secretary of CTEVT were among the other notable guests.
The function was held as a farewell to the graduating classes of 2017, 2018, and 2019, thanking them for their contributions to the Padmashree family and wishing them the best of luck in their future endeavors. The program's participation was confirmed by the graduates of 2017, 2018, and 2019. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak's global spread and the harsh measures that followed, the college was unable to host a farewell ceremony for the graduates of the previous three batches. In a similar vein, no welcome program was given to the new students. Thus, this program was distinguished as a special occasion that said goodbye to the graduates and welcomed its new students.
