The students also get an opportunity to learn many other languages other than their own.
Most students have joined the club to learn as many languages as they can. The students are taught to read and write any of the languages which come under ‘Bhasha Sangam’. Meena Kumari, a second year BSc student says, “I knew Telugu and Kannada and I had always wanted to learn Sanskrit and Urdu, so I decided to join the club. It has helped me in various ways. We get to interact with people from various backgrounds and it’s nice to listen to them speak so many things about their region or language, many small things are also exchanged about various languages which usually goes unnoticed most of the times.”

The club is popular for its ‘Kacheri’ every year. Well-known musicians, from their respective languages have  performed as part it; poems and short story writing competitions were also held. ‘Sangeeta Sangama’, a programme where students themselves took part by singing songs from different languages, exchanged information on certain current issues. For instance, classical status for Indian languages is one such topic that was discussed at the club. Most of the activities are theme based. The latest one is called, ‘Pragne’ which means consciousness. All the activities are for creating awareness about languages which come under the club.

 These activities are held once every semester. Bhumika, a second year BA student says, “It’s really nice to learn as many languages as possible, considering our tough study schedules it is difficult to go out and sign up for a language course outside of the college. If there are such clubs in the college vicinity we get another opportunity to learn another language.” Many students at Maharani’s are in favour of Bhasha Sangam and they like the club as well as its activities.
