Bangalore based MVJ College of Engineering hosted its inter-collegiate annual cultural fest ‘SWAYAM-18’ at its Whitefield campus on April 27-28. The theme this year was “Around the World” with over 1000 students and 25 colleges participating.
The institute’s annual social and cultural festival is a platform for all students from engineering colleges across Karnataka and other states to contend, showcase and prove their excellence in extracurricular activities.
Speaking on the occasion, author and renowned journalist Gita Aravamudan said, “It is always a great feeling to be among the students and I absolutely loved the energy and enthusiasm at Swayam. Students are a great resource to our country and I feel very proud when students give feedback regarding my writings. To know that reading skills are still alive among the youths is only a great motivational source for authors like me to write more”.
“The audience was extremely fascinated to witness our students perform with all vigour and zeal and we are extremely proud of our students to put up a successful show like Swayam- 2018. Any show can be successful only by the hard-earned efforts of the students and Swayam’18 has proven it right”, said Dr. N Gunasekaran, principal, MVJ College of Engineering.
Promising an unforgettable experience with a plethora of intriguing events, SWAYAM has always managed to be one of the major crowd pullers. The Lagori band performance enthralled the students as much as other events like Just MIME, FIFA, Battle of Bands, Short Film competition, Solo and Group dance performances.
