3 min read

Mysuru: Over 800 students from different colleges of State participated in “Sathgamaya 2020”, a state level multi-fest, organised by Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham  March 3 and 4 in the city.

Renowned actor and founder of Natana School of Theatre Arts, Mandya Ramesh distributed the prizes for winners at Open Air Theatre, Manasagangothri.

Mysore Institute of Commerce and Arts (MICA) won the overall championship. The fest saw the presence of over 3,000 footfalls.

In his valedictory address, Ramesh mentioned that academics need to be supported with co-curricular activities. Participation in such events helps to inculcate moral values and ideals required for balancing their emotional quotient sidelong with the intelligence quotient. He urged the participants to follow their passion and pursue it seriously.

Dr Balakrishnan Shankar

Earlier on March 3, the event was inaugurated by Dr Balakrishnan Shankar, Dean Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Quoting Steve Jobs in his inaugural address Shankar said “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. By dots I mean— your gut, destiny, life, karma, etc., and you have to trust these dots as they connect somewhere, in some-way, in your future. Honestly, this approach has never let me down, and has brought big differences in my life”.

Everyone has dreams and everyone tries to make them come true. In the process of pursuing a dream, one may have to face many difficulties, but one should never give up, he added.

Dr M R Seetharam

Voice to the Youth, a special lecture was arranged on the occasion on “Channelizing Youth for Nation Building” which was delivered by Dr M R Seetharam, President, Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement (SVYM) Mysuru. He said channelising the youth energy to constructive nation building is the need of the time or else it will become a destructive force as we can see in the present. He advised the youth who are mostly engaged with their cell phones “Don’t be stuck to your mobile instead you be mobile physically and intellectually”. Redefining 4G in his own way, he observed that youth should be – Goal oriented, seek appropriate Guidance, Grind themselves and stay Grounded throughout.
