25th July, 2016 - Blue Day

Water Water everywhere but not a single drop to drink” these are the famous line of S.T. Coleridge from one of his; the most famous and marvelous work “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

With these words in focus and referring to the running conditions of the depreciating state of water, Cultural Club organized “BLUE” DAY on 25th July 2016- the first n foremost day of the cultural week. Blue symbolizes the most important element of life - water. The chief principle behind Blue day was to spread awareness among the students about the deteriorating state of water and to encourage them to take a step forward and contribute in water conservation. Though, the entire planet is covered with almost 79% of water the irony lies in the fact that only 1% of it is accessible for drinking purpose.

It’s truly said “Anything is valuable in two situations………..before getting it and after losing it”. So before it gets too late, let us appreciate the heavenly gift to mankind by God- the water and preserve for our very generations.

Deep down in the valley, as the mountain tops were covered by mist. So, was the Christ College beautifully decorated with blue color. On this day, all the students and staff members of Christ College actively participated by wearing blue apparel. The campus was decorated with blue ribbons and lots of water droplets. Rangoli and various collages depicting the role of water in our day to day life were prepared by the students.

Ms. Prarthna Buch and Ms. Payal, Faculty Christ Polytechnic Institute were the judges for the day.The judgment criteria was quite simple, one who wear maximum blue is the winner.

Great playwright George Bernard Shaw in one of his famous work “The Arms and The Man” portrays a true patriot, he chiefly explains the meaning of patriotism and ones love for their own country. While commenting on his work he says “Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others because you were born in it”.

With same ideals like that of Shaw’s Cultural Club, Christ College celebrated Patriotic Day on 26th July 2016 with the objective to salute the martyrs of our nations. The college was decorated in the colors of Patriotism and beautiful rangolis were done by the students.

28th July, 2016 - Filmy Day

“Senorita, bade bade shehro mae aisi choti choti baate”, “Arrey oh sambha….kitna inaam rakhe hai Sarkar ham par”, “Don kaa intazar tho barha mulko ki police kar rahi hai par Don ko pakadna muskil hi nahi naa mumkin hai”. These are some of the million dollar dialogues which every individual irrespective of the age group uses it somewhere or the other in his/her life. Since, long movies have become an integral part of man’s life. Some people consider movies as one of the necessity in order to survive.

Keeping in mind the fever of movies (moreover the Bollywood) which is driving people crazy day by day. Cultural Club organized “Filmy Day” on 28th July 2016 and all students got a chance to dress up like their favorite hero, heroine or villain. The students really enjoyed the day and even participated with great enthusiasm and zeal.

They enacted for few minutes, the famous dialogues of their favorite actor whom they were portraying.

Looking at the other side of the mirror, we also celebrate the very hard work of the actors which they put up and entertain us throughout our life. But in this limelight of glamour and popularity we kind of neglect their hardships, pain and the suffering which they undergoes to become a successful actor.

The judges for the Filmy Day were Ms. Dharshita Ganatra (Department of Business Administration) and Ms. Shivani Raval (Department of Bioinformatics).

“Culture is the arts elevated to a set of beliefs” says Thomas Wolfe. It is a belief which hold us all together with a common bond. It is the shared knowledge of art and values of a society. It is something which one can never learn, but can only experience it and so did every student of the college during the entire cultural week. With this, the week-long excitement, fun, enthusiasm, creativity and a bag full of activities came to an end rejuvenating the spirits and motivating students as well as teachers.
