Annual Report 2016-17

The Hindi Literary Circle began the academic year 2016-17 with a great celebration with innovative, new events like Jhat Pat Fatat, Kehana Kya Chahte Ho? Pehchan kaun? and the age-old infamous events like Geet Bahar and Hindi Diwas!

The activities commemorated in the month of August, beginning with Jhat Pat Fatafat, where an individual was given a root word along with a few helping words to the root word and he was to convey the word to his fellow participant. This memorable event enjoyed the participation of 22 Hindi enthusiasts!

The flagship event, Hindi Diwas on 14th September was graced by the principal of our college, Dr. Mrs. Shobana Vasudevan, and our committee' chairperson Mrs. Neeraja Dhulekar. Senior students presented a tribute to our Rashtriyabhasha with a delightful song. A delightful skit and soulful poetry recitation added to the charm of the event which was guided by the eloquent anchoring of Sarah Kari.

Pehchan kaun? and Kehna Kya Chahte Ho? were events where the students were asked a few riddles and were made to collect an alphabet for every correct answer, which would ultimately form a phrase or in the literal sense, a couplet. With caption rounds and tough tongue twisters, Prajyot Mahajan of FYBMS and Pranali Mastud of SYJC emerged as clear winners.

The renowned Podar event, Geet Bahar was held on 15 February by HLC. It was a musical event where the students performed with live music created by professional musicians. With the theme of 'Bollywood', this event took the audience to the golden era of eternal music and it was graced by the chief guest, Mr. Soneer Vadhera, an actor from Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma.
