Just like we treasured memories in 2016, we don’t see 2017 as a mere calendar year being comprised of 365 days. Rather, it’s been a wonderful journey for us.
And this journey is dotted with several destinations in the form of events, celebrations, achievements and many more.
We KVRians did show solidarity; came up with dedication and exchanged ideas to make things better throughout this journey, whether it’s determining the event dress code or raising the fund for charity.
Why not cherish such year defining moments.
We invite you to embark upon a time travel with us to take a dive into such glorifying memories of 2017. As we said it before that 2017 has been a journey, which went through several destinations. So let us take you back to those destinations you might have visited but not in the way we KVRians did. Here we go…
