A fest with a purpose, Abhyuday is IIT Bombay’s annual social festival. Started back in 2013 by a group of determined students who felt the need for a body to provide opportunities to the students of the institute wishing to work for a better society, the fest has been receiving enormous praise for its impact and reach. The Abhyuday team is also responsible for conducting events throughout the year, most notably, its blood donation campaign witnessed colossal participation from students, professors and other residents of the institute.
This year, the social fest will be conducted on 18 and 19 January. Some of its events include ‘Kala Manch’- the online art competition, the ‘Youth Delegate Program’ and ‘Profectus’ - the fellowship program. The fest also promises a variety of lectures by eminent personalities like Padma Bhushan recipient Dr. K. K. Talwar and Innovation Ambassador at the UN, Dr. Sheetal Amte.
