Invocation Song

At the start of any convocation, it is traditional to have an invocation song. At IIIT-Delhi, we have decided that we would recite an inspirational song chosen by our Chief Guest. This year, our Chief Guest has chosen Hum ko manki shakti dena (sung by Vani Jairam in the Hindi feature film Guddi).
