Cultural Activities : 2018-2019
Objective : To have overall development of students.
Background: Cultural Council over the years has been organising events that bring together fun, knowledge, creativity, innovation and freshness in various aspects of our life.
Prarambh is an event hosted for welcoming the freshers of the undergraduate and MCA courses. Right after the election the preparations for PRARAMBH began. After slogging for over a month, the event was a grand success. The theme of this years Prarambh was “Snapping into Action”.
The event started when the auspicious lamp was lit by Prof. Naveeta Kant and Prof.Vivek Umrikar. This event had pre-events too, such as online events and aesthetics events etc. The event was scheduled on 31st August 2018 from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. It started with the event Treasure Hunt and literature events followed by various performing art events like artists assemble, personality contest, group dance etc. The event ended with a DJ for the freshers of our college.
As a new academic year commences in VESIT, the Cultural Council, comes into existence and kick starts with their very first event, i.e, the Freshers’ Party for the very own first year students. It is named Udaan. The council comes up with creative ideas for the same out of which one theme is selected. The entire event then revolves around this theme including the events, dress codes and the decorations.
This event gives the freshers the first opportunity to showcase their talents in college. Potential candidates for other college competitions coming up in the recent future are identified. This is a field for the students to bond with each other and unite together as a class. The first year students prove to be a batch full of talent and enthusiasm and are able to grab all the opportunities given to them with impeccable response and performances.
Points are given to students on the basis of their performance in different events and games, and the class with the maximum points wins the “Best Class” award. Other awards like “Mr. and Ms. Freshers”, “Best Dancer”, etc. are given to the most deserving students.
Illusion the only league format cultural event in VESIT with the objective of promoting intra-college bonding and identifying the most phenomenal talents in the institution. Illusion provides a grand arena for students to compete with each other and unlock individual potential. The Council discovers a unique formula for a fun filled event which demanded excellence from the participants.
The Illusion team extensively scouts the institution for 6 prudent and qualified team leaders who face each other to bring home the championship trophy. The teams work tirelessly to identify the most promising talents from the institution by a series of auditions and interviews, with the team leaders monitoring closely. A fierce auction sees the team leaders lock horns with each other in the battle to find the perfect medley of members for their team. The auction process results in the formation of 42 members in each team leaded by 6 formidable leaders in portfolios of Music, Dance, Drama, Literature, Visual Arts and Aesthetics. After a fierce competition one of the six teams emerges as the winner. With innovative events planned for each portfolio Illusion is certainly an event to remember for years.
Shree Ganesha, our most awaited guest bestowed his blessings upon us. This festival is also celebrated in our college. After the Ganpati holidays, we continued the Ganpati celebrations by keeping a Ganesh MahaPujan in the library of VESIT. The cultural council joined hands in making Ganesh Chaturthi special by taking special efforts for making delicious prasad like Sheera, Sev-bundi for the entire VESIT family.
