SALVO 2018: INTERDEPARTMENTAL CULTURAL FEST

Extracurricular activities teach students how to work for a common goal and this ultimately develops a sense of responsibility in them. It increases the level of confidence and also teaches them how to co-operate and work with people in different conditions. They learn to face the challenges that come in education and career. Extracurricular activities like sports require a person to remain physically fit. Thus students have to be particular about their health and diet. They have to take diet which can make them physically stronger and also do exercise daily. They start loving their body, which is very important for a happier life.

The importance of social and cultural activities is preparing students for real life and strengthening their personal skills. Social/cultural activities not only help students to identify themselves with the college, but also assist students to develop themselves in a desired field and also improve skills such as organizational, presentation, leadership and interpersonal communication. As social and cultural activities are of paramount importance, the college encourages all extra-curricular activities that are both in line with the educational objectives of the institution and meet the needs of the students.

Culture can be defined as the arts as well as the intangible shared beliefs, values, and practices of a community. Students participate in arts and culture at varying levels of skill and engagement. Some create, while others listen to, watch, teach, critique, or learn a cultural activity, art form, or expression. Some are professional artists, designers, and inventors, while others engage informally in expressive activities or create innovative tools, relationships, or products. The field as a whole can be represented within a framework that has four main aspects: degree of professionalism, type of activity, locations and spaces, and level of participation and involvement. Together, these formal and informal, tangible and intangible, professional and amateur artistic and cultural activities constitute a community’s cultural assets.

This is another most awaited programme in the college. The students look forward to exhibit their talents, creativity in fine-arts and literary competency. Inter Departmental cultural competitions 'SALVO' – 2018 was organized on 14th and 15th of December 2018 by the student council under the guidance of the cultural advisor Mr. S.
