A clean collaboration

Students of Mount Carmel College collaborated with MTV Act, a social initiative of MTV, to clean their surrounding neighbourhood. The project was a pre event of Cul-Ah, MCC’s annual fest.

The students were provided with brooms, dustbins and gloves to clean up their surrounding lanes. Graphic artists as well as painters added beauty to the bare walls. 

Brindha, a member of the NSS at MCC said, "We found dirt outside cigarette and coffee shops. A lot of people asked us why we weren't complaining to the BBMP and we told them that it was our responsibility if no one is willing to take any action."

 To lift up everyone’s spirits, stellar musical performances by Grey Matter and beatboxer Vineeth Vincent were presented. The acts weren't just confined to the campus as the artists took their performances to the street towards the evening and pulled out a crowd of several onlookers and volunteers ranging from shopkeepers to residents.

 "We wanted to gain a social platform. This is our first collaboration with a college outside Bombay,” said Mathew, an employee of MTV Act. Meghna Babu, the assistant cultural secretary, said, "As a part of the pre ‘Cul-Ah’ initiative this year we decided to focus on social responsibility so that we could set an example to other colleges. For us its more than just a fest.

It’s a way of involving the Mount Carmel Community to gain a better understanding of the bigger picture. We wanted to collaborate with MTV to get the youth involved, which is why we had musical performances to try and make it into a wholesome project."
