MET Institute of Pharmacy celebrated ‘Lumiere 2012’ the annual festival on February 23 – 24 at the MET Convention Centre. There was an array of events which were conducted by the Student Council with full vigor and enthusiasm! All the members of the teaching and non-teaching staff as well as students came together to participate in this fest! MET IOP introduced the M. Pharm. Sc. programme last year and the students of M. Pharm. Sc. mingled with the Degree and Diploma students and became a true part of the MET IOP team during the Lumiere 2012.
The celebration began with the outdoor and indoor sports on 18th - 20th February with high spirits shown by all the team members involved! 23rd & 24th February brought in the cheerfulness of the cultural events! The students displayed their artistic streak in face painting, rangoli and t-shirt painting. Several students’ forte being singing and dancing, they thoroughly enjoyed the newly introduced Bollywood event in which every team was given a movie from which they had to enact a scene, sing a song as well as put up a dance performance. The solo and duet singing events were also a hit as always…what with so many students displaying their excellent singing prowess.
On 23rd Feb, MET IOP bid an official farewell to the students of the final year B. Pharm (2008 – 12), who will surely miss the warmth of this cocoon- the MET IOP family! MET IOP faculty addressed all the final year students which touched their hearts and gave them some valuable advice which stood as shining pearls of wisdom for them all.
On 24th Feb, Mr. Pankaj Bhujbal, MET Trustee, Dr. U.B. Hadkar, Director - MET IOP, Dr. Abha Doshi, Principal (B. Pharm) – MET IOP and Mr. S. D. Bhosale, Principal (D.

Hadkar, Director - MET IOP gave an overview of the academic year 2011-12 in the form of a wonderful PowerPoint presentation. The event ended on a high note with some power packed dance performances by the students of MET IOP and an amazing jam session.
