The excitement of working together

New representatives

It was after a rather long-drawn campaign and colourful electioneering that the students chose their representative.

So the excitement was evident. The hooting and cheering never stopped until the end of the installation programme.

The installation began with the faculty introducing the new student government and the swearing in of the presidents of the 30 odd associations of the college.

The new student government was excited and talked about the many plans they have in store for the academic year. There was a professional touch to everything they did, said and talked about. Karthika Nair, the vice president, from the final year BSc said she had some interesting things for the hostel.

“I live in the hostel and I was given to understand that science students just can’t handle too much of pressure and don’t get the time to participate in the extracurricular activities. I am a science student and I am hell bent on proving that notion wrong,” said Karthika who hopes to inspire the students to participate in all the activities.

Soumi Bhattacharjee, the cultural secretary thinks ‘Cul-Ah’, the annual inter-college fest of MCC is one among the best in the City.

“I hope to contribute to making it better and bigger this year. And I know it’s not going to be easy to strike a balance between academics and union work but I am ready to face that challenge,” said Soumi.

Twin sisters Anaha Ravi Narayan, the president and Anala Ravi Narayan, the assistant cultural secretary never thought they would win the elections.  They confess that it’s just a chance that they took and were thrilled when they won.

“I wouldn’t have been as happy if my sister hadn’t won too. Now that we’re both in, it makes it all the more special,” said Anaha, who is in final year BCom. “To lead the student union of such a prestigious institution will surely be a rewarding experience. I hope to build a sense of oneness and unity among the students on campus,” observed Anaha.

The other members of the union are Deepti Hegde, general secretary and Manasa Jagadish, treasurer. The members of the Indian Music Association who call themselves Nyneishia sang a medley of five songs in five different languages.

They began with Majhire in Bengali then moved onto Hosanna in Tamil, Haipham Khangde in Manipuri, Ale Ale in Kannada and concluded with Socha Hai... in Hindi. “These are songs of inspiration that help stir up a sense of oneness,” explained Mithila Raman, a member of the association. The western music association too sang, ‘Sing’ in acappella style.
