The word ‘Ignite’ means to catch fire. Fire symbolises the energy of the youth, positivity and divine intervention. ‘IGNITE INDIA’ has aptly used this power of fire, to captivate the students from Grade 9 to Grade 12 with the help of this innovative and interesting concept of a student fest dedicated to guiding, empowering and above all, celebrating the uniqueness of every child.
The fest has been rightly titled as ‘Meraki’, which translates to ‘great passion’. The concept behind the grand festival was to acquaint students with offbeat careers and provide a platform for showcasing one’s talents and abilities. The idea is one of its kind and it is truly rare to see an institute invest huge amounts of resources to create awareness and motivate the youth of the country.
Symbiosis Junior College of Arts, Science and Commerce located in Kiwale was fortunate to participate at ‘Meraki’ and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the day. From the interaction with accomplished guest speakers to walking the ramp and eagerly awaiting the final prize distribution ceremony, there was no dull moment. As a part of our experiential model of learning at Symbiosis Junior College, we take pride in encouraging our students to participate in various competitions all across the globe to challenge themselves.
Symbiosis Junior College bagged three awards for Slam Poetry and Art. We are forever indebted to the organizing committee at Ignite India for giving our students the much-needed exposure and pat on the back my special thanks to Mrs Nidhi Mithil Bhandare, Founder, Director Mindlancer, Regional Head, Ignite India for inviting and organising such a meaningful event.
Kudos to all the participating students, Principals, teachers and the organising committee for coming together and pooling their skills and expertise. We hope to empower the generation of tomorrow, with knowledge galore in the years to come.
