The convivial cosmopolitan campus plays host to numerous events, through the
year. From ceremonial or competitive ones to festive and fun-filled
Most festivals of our country, apart from the three National Days, are celebrated with joy, elation & fanfare. Occasions like these not only depict the rich tapestry of our culture but foster the fine bonds of sisterhood.
Poly's Mela : 23rd Feb. 2017
Some vignettes and photographic shots from Poly's Mela , today! They hopefully capture the 'shor sharaba' and a different kind of 'raunaq', from the daily academic calendar of Session 2016 -17. As an appreciative after-thought, it was admirable to see many timid and shy students come out and bloom in sales & marketing skills. Whilst others, who normally keep a discreet backfoot - display some original and astonishing artwork or craftmanship!
Shivrathri @ Poly Campus
Har har Mahadev ! Festive Greetings on Shivrathri and on the celestial wedding of the eternal divine couple in their snow-capped mountainous abode. Many salutations to all the devout Poly students, staff and honourable teachers - on their 'day-long' fast.
Guru Ravidas Jayanthi @ POLY
Felicitations on Guru Ravidas. India's mystic saint and poet, who participated in India's golden era of Bhakti movement through promotion of presonal spiritual freedom, peace and social harmony. He is also said to have inspired numerous philosophers and teachers, who came after him.

Republic Day Celebrations @Poly Campus : 26th Jan, 2017
Xmas & New Year : 2016
The last event of the Calendar Year @ Poly Campus was commenced with Christmas Carols by an amateur ‘near-impromptu’ Choir consisting of students from the Dept. of Advertising, PR & Business Studies, This was followed by the much awaited end-of-year bash aka DJ Party @ Poly Audi !
All students were very festively attired. Some, in Christmasy Reds , others in trendy Winter Wear , and some even looked dressed for a ‘glam party ; cash-flow crunch ‘Post 8 November’ notwithstanding.
Each department (as per their selective palate and tastes) had a certain menu of celebratory feast or edible treats.
More soberly, there was also the dreaded Winter Hols Project ( “No Holiday homework! We are over with school”, said the students) were allotted and issued.
There were regrets on how quickly the Term had passed. But, others looked forward to staging promises and dismantling resolutions! The infallible youth of our City, with their ‘die-hard’ attitude; Bless ‘em !
CHILDREN’S DAY @ Poly Campus
The Dept. of Beauty Cosmetology & Hair Styling in a precocious mood, adorned parts of the Campus with Balloons and streamers. They also sang a popular film oldie, “Insaaf ke dagar pe, bacchon dikhao chalke / yeh desh hai tumahara, tum hee ho Neta kal ke.” More seriously, they dwelt on the atrocities in our country on children. Including those by paedophiles, the existence of child labour, corporal punishment, bullying etc. How it leads to devastation and even loss of tender young lives. On a positive note, they rejoiced on Kailash Satyarthi (who shared the Nobel Prize of peace with Malala Yousafzai) and his unstinted efforts for removal of child bondage. There were also useful tips (for young mothers)on special concessions and bonus events in the city on Children’s Day.
GURPURAB @Poly Campus
The sacred and devout festival of birth celebrations of the first Guru of the Sikhs – saw a joyous rendition of shabad kirtan composed by Guru Nanak Ji, by students from Dept. of Textile & Apparel Design. They were decked in beautiful traditional Punjabi attire. One of them also shared nuggets on the great deeds and philosophy of peace and harmony, of this Great Saint form India. On a more interesting note, they recalled the college’s historic visit to Nanakpura (Gurnu Nanak Ji’s birthplace) in the 1980’s by a delegation consisting of the Director and Female Teachers via Lahore, Pakistan. The Granthis there - at the Gurudwara said, it was the first of it’s kind after Partition from India. Also, an annual gratuitous mention of the Sewadars of Southall Gurudwara, London, who (on an exchange UKIERI trip to Dundee, Scotland) gave such kind and caring hospitality, to the team of Art & Design Team of Teachers & Students.
Diwali & Bhai Dooj Celebrations @ Poly Campus
'Ladies Festival ' of Karwa Chauth @ POLY Campus
The popular Northern Indian 'ladies festival ' of Karwa Chauth gave some shimmer and sheen, to the Poly Campus. As, many married students and teachers were decked up (almost in bridal finery!) alongwith keeping the day-long fast. The students from the department of Jewellery Design & Manufacture sang a semi-folk song on this occasion and also told of the symbolic significance of this day, to students - who are from other regions of India.
The sacred day of 'Shashti' marked very cultural celebrations @ the Poly Campus.Although, the traditional Dandiya Dance Programme was disbanded, due to the sorrowful loss of our brave soldiers at Uri. There was invocation of Goddess Durga by some students from the Department of Interior Design. The ancient Sanskrit Shlokas were composed by Guru Adi Shankracharya. A popular Dandiya song composed by Siddharth Garima was sung by 1st Yr students from the Department of Holistic Health & Fitness.The festive attire of all studentswere most charming and eye-catching , besides in keeping with the festival norms.
Day after tomorrow 'Ashtami' shall mark the onset of Dasara Holidays!
Felicitations and Badhais to everyone ,on behalf of the College.

Precious Poetry ‘n the Polyglot palette.
There was a ‘Poetry Workshop’ on 15th of JAN, 2016 @ Campus Hall of Books by Rahat Kurd (awarded Canadian-Vancouver Mayor's Award for most emerging young literary Artist:2014) and a recent anthology published in 2015, titled:Cosmophilia
Heart-warming opening by Ms. Kurd in Hindustani ,when she said, ”She was happy to be surrounded by such passionate young women in the historic city of Ghalib and other noted poets.”
Workshop included debates on themes like; grammarian technicalities, multiple identities, the celebration of the very precious trilingual cultures - which Ms. Rahat said made her more adventurous and experimental apart from discovering a wider world! She shared reminiscences of her travels thru’ Central Asia’ and childhood. That is, how as a child she found at home - different languages spoken at different times and with different people. She read out two of her own poems , viz:Abdul Rahman (on her grandfather) and ‘Being married to English’.
This was followed by recitation of favourite poems of students in various regional languages of India and some ‘own’ compositions. The students also had a questionnaire to fill out with queries like ‘How would poetry benefit your life and world?’ ‘Are trans-continental and multi cultural interactions important in 2016?’ ‘Thoughts and opinions on Rahat Kurd’s poems’ etc.
On conclusion of workshop, there was a resounding applause indicative of it’s success and there was the inevitable clamour for selfies!
