Empowerment through an enriching dimension

M.O.P. Vaishnav College for Women is synonymous with ‘Jhankar’ and ‘Abilasha’, the annual cultural extravaganzas that bring out the competitive sprit of students. It’s main aim is to provide endeavors that facilitate the overall growth of students, as mere intellectual accomplishments would result in lopsided development.

Every student has a singer, dancer or debater within her. To bring to the fore these hidden talents, is the responsibility of the college. The college not only recognizes this role, but also wants each of its students to become an ambassador of our cultural heritage, which is being forgotten in today’s fast paced life.

Abhilasha

Identification of talent within the college begins with ‘Abhilasha’ – a three day talent scout held for the freshers. Besides finding latent talents in the first year students, this event serves as an ice breaker making the new students feel at home immediately. The freshers are all set to impress their seniors and the bonding is created instantaneously. Every fresher is reassured that she is in the right place.

Jhankar

‘Jhankar’, a cultural extravaganza is the most awaited event among the student community. It is an occasion for them to showcase their knowledge of the country’s music, dance and various other art forms. It also provides them a platform to test their skills in event management. The students are excited and challenged by this opportunity.

This annual feature of the college includes intra-mural and inter-collegiate competitions which are fiercely contested ensuring maximum participation. The high point, however, is the host show on a non-competitive basis – the cream of M.O.P. at their best.

The extra cultural activities function with the main aim of providing:

  • A platform to showcase their talents and skills
  • A healthy spirit of free and fair competition
  • The attitude to be generous winners and gracious losers
  • An opportunity to develop event management skills
  • The feeling of pride in one’s cultural heritage
