An explosion of creative efforts

The RV Institute of Management (RVIM) organised ‘Talents Week’ for its first-semester students recently. Organised by the cultural committee of the college
Abhihitha, the week-long festivity consisted of cultural and extra-curricular events.

The cultural events included group and solo singing, dance performances and skits on social issues like alcohol abuse, ill-effects of using the mobile, unemployment, gender bias etc.

The extra-curricular events included photography, drawing and painting on global warming and the festivals of India, flower arrangement, compering in English or
Kannada and rangoli competitions.

All the students showcased their talents through the various events with a lot of enthusiasm. For many, it was an extension of their passion or hobby.

Pooja A, a student, who was a part of a skit, said that the skit tried to showcase how people dupe others for money. “I have participated in many theatre workshops and it was encouraging to get an opportunity to explore theatre again, despite RVIM being a management college,” she said. Pooja added that it was nice to see how the college concentrated on the overall growth of a student rather than just academics.

Greeshma S loves arranging flowers and took part in the flower-arrangement competition. “It’s been my pastime for a while now. I had another team member and we discussed our ideas to make the end-product. We chose to work only with pink flowers,” she detailed.

A participant of the rangoli competition, Divya N, came prepared with flowers. “We got just 45 minutes to make the design. It was a challenging and fun experience and it helped to bring out our creative side in the process,” said Divya.

Depicting the effects of pollution on the environment, Viranjan did a painting in a matter of 15 minutes. “It was a hard task to put together one’s thoughts and paint in such a short time. But it was a great push for my creativity. It was a nice experience to work under a deadline. I painted the effect of the industries on the people and the City,” he said.

Others vouched that the week also taught them about teamwork. Chetan Patil and his team performed a skit called Pani Aur Pagal, which represented the different colours of water. “We tried to show how the colour of water changes according to circumstances,” said Chetan. He added that the experience taught him about coordination and working together as
a group.
