A different kind of heart attack’ was the first event that we conducted as the new council in 2017. It was a Valentine’s Day special CME. Mr Neil Vimalkumar Boniface from the Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) was the main speaker. Their primary mission is to reach and challenge those who shape the ideas of a culture with the credibility of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The ministry is intended to touch both the heart and intellect of the thinkers and influences of society through the support of visionary leadership of Ravi Zacharias. As it was Valentine’s Day special, the talk was based on love and its different aspects like, how it is better to give than receive, how we should not expect anything in return just as God loves us unconditionally and how we should value and love others more than us. He also spoke about lending a helping hand to the needy, being humble, having a purpose in life and that whatever we do must be for the glory of God. We must be able to spread the love of God to others through the way we live.
The CME ended with a question and answer session where the audience, which consisted of both students and faculty, actively participated. The audience comprised of people not only from our college but from other colleges in Pondicherry as well.
