LITERARY PLAY and WORKSHOPS- First time ever held at IMT Ghaziabad , the play ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ was held on the occasion of Teacher’s Day as a tribute to APJ Kalam. IMT experienced this indelible ‘fashion’ in the world of literature and theatre by this farcical comedy. Apart from conducting such events, we also conduct various workshops to facilitate students to follow their passion and build upon their interests. CulCom also serves as IMT’s interface for various events across the country.
