On the 30th of September, the BBA students with S P Jain, Mumbai were taken on a tour they would remember. The Mumbai Jags experienced something new. They visited the Rochiram T. Thadani School for the hearing impaired, a school in Chembur, Mumbai, built to diagnose, educate, and empower children with aural impairment. Later, the cohort had lunch at Mirchi and Mime, a restaurant with a twist – staffed with individuals who are hearing impaired.
On arrival at the Rochiram Thadani School, the cohort was addressed by the Principal, Mrs. Poonam Sawant. She explained to the batch that just providing hearing aids to students was not enough, since there are many forms of deafness. As such, all pupils have to first pass through what she termed as “the heart of the school” – the audiology laboratory. Here the students’ impairment is diagnosed and the right equipment is chosen and customised for them.
On the 24th of September 2016, 15 students of S P Jain’s Mumbai campus travelled to the Mad Over Sports cricket field located in Hotel Shanti Doot, Dadar, to play a friendly match of cricket. As with any sports outing, the atmosphere was electric, and the excitement, palpable. The matches were to be for two hours, with seven players on one side and eight on the other – for a duration of five overs.
The grounds were located on the terrace of Shanti Doot, four stories above the ground level. Upon arrival, the teams were formed – team Flash and team Tupperware, both captained by the students. Team Tupperware decided to bat first, where some really talented student batsmen opened the game.
