Cultural Committee, IMT Ghaziabad
The Cultural Committee of IMT Ghaziabad strives to celebrate cultural diversity by organizing cultural performances, religious offerings & conducting events during festivals and special occasions to maintain cultural harmony.
The committee believes that a college should have its equal share of fun & frolic along with hectic academic schedules. We attempt to capture the students’ vibrant persona by offering them a platform to showcase their inner talent, be it musicians, actors, dancers, writers, painters, photographers, and above all, performing art dreamers. The committee assures that the students have a homely experience at campus.
The committee is responsible for organizing the following activities on campus:
Zest: The first high of IMT – for the juniors by the juniors. A talent hunt cultural event aimed to be the ice-breaker of B-school life, unveiling the new batch’s talented pool. The college’s Cultural Committee conducts the event, wherein individual, duet, or team performances are encouraged. Participants get a chance to unleash their talents and entertain the audience by taking part in various cultural, non-cultural, and informal events. Originally an on-stage talent show event, Zest’20 took a steep turn to become a talent hunt competition in the virtual mode.
PASSION is a 2-day Cultural and Management extravaganza of IMT, Ghaziabad. It is usually held in the month of Nov-Dec every year and is often called the Mecca of B-School fest.
Passion 2020 witnessed a footfall of 1000+ students from many elite colleges all over India. It consisted of various cultural events, where each person can put their best foot forward. Multiple events from every performing arts genre – Music, Dance, Singing, Creative Ad Designing, Sketching, etc. – were conducted. Participation was welcome in all forms – Solo, Duet, or Groups, providing a platform for management students pan-India to showcase their talent & win accolades.
Fabula: The nukkad-natak event is a National Social awareness event to bring change in society. To promote this good cause on a much higher level, we took Fabula out of college boundaries and showcased the real issues proudly in the heart of Delhi-Central Park, Connaught Place, New Delhi – to create a much more significant impact. Dignitaries from specialized fields of drama came to judge the performances. The turn-in ratio of teams was huge, and the topic of choice was so solid and gripping that the event was able to pull a crowd of 500+ who were so convulsed and clenched in the portrayal of real yet ignored social problems.
This is the farewell to the outgoing batch: “For the seniors, By the seniors”. The outgoing second-year students perform on the stage just like juniors do in Zest. It includes dance, music, drama, or anything that the students wish to perform. Turning the college Amphitheatre into our stage, the outgoing batch makes memories on a wintery evening in February.
DHRUPAD SAROD (SAROD CONCERT)
We tried to bring a new cultural aspect by introducing students to the Indian classical form of music.
To truly celebrate the spirit of patriotism through music and poetry. Games and fun activities were organized for the children of the staff and faculty. We worked in a proper organizational structure for planning, coordinating, and executing the event.
We were honored to get the opportunity to express our gratitude towards our teachers for their relentless effort in imparting the best knowledge to us.
2020 was the second year for Dandiya Night in IMT. A live view of the beautiful crowd was witnessed. Through this, we wanted to connect the students with traditional Indian culture and roll start the festive season for this year.
Lohri Festival is celebrated in January, where members from the Cultural Committee and Punjab Community put up a huge bonfire followed by an energetic & electrifying Bhangra.
Last year(2020) was the second time where Holi was celebrated in IMT. Conducted in March, Holi was celebrated with the whole student community with Gulaal & mouth-watering gujiyas – greeted by Messcomm.
With events like the sarod concert, dandiya night, Lohri, and Holi, the committee took a step to bring the country’s youth close to its cultural roots. Such initiatives & celebration of festivities ensure that we maintain the glorious Indian heritage and culture through joyous occasions and events.
