  This was followed by the sacred National Anthem that was sung simultaneous to the hoisting of our sacred Tiranga .This year, the honours to do this - went to a Senior Office Staff Member: Kamini Mehta Mam.

Holi @Poly Campus

The College broke tradition this year, by NOT celebrating and having their famous CAMPUS HOLI, this time round.
This was on account of tragic passing away of their dearest FOUNDER DIRECTOR : ASHIMA CHAUDHURI Ji. It was all the more poignant - as, she had been one of the greatest Campus revellors of Holi, in her time. Sookhi Holi,Geeli Holi,Garam pani-thanda paani,nothing was less or more for her. She was known to have enthused and converted many a sceptic to participate in this highly joyous cum  frolicsome festival of India !Not to forget the preparation of  100s of gujia (or 'gauja' as she called them!) by her own hands alongwith Late  Bimla Burman, the erstwhile Hostel Warden of Poly.

The ECE department (keeping in mind, the sad circumstances this year) produced a sombre but quite elegant  programme on the Mic for everyone.They shared   the symbolic meaning and contemporary practices of Holi, esp. in North India. They also sang a sweet traditional Holi Geet. The Director Dr. Reyhan Chaudhuri, much appreciated the fact that they did not fall prey to Bollywood temptations and stuck to a traditional tune and were accompanied by regional music instruments.
On behalf of everyone at the Campus - many wishes for harmony and affection, to all communities  in our beloved country India !


The Department of Holistic Health & Fitness had their 'Open-Day' at Poly Campus. 
The much-awaited 'Natural  Home Remedies' preparations were available for display and taking home ! They were popular due to their Time-tested , non-toxic, organic, safe, (i.e no side effects) , planet-friendly, cost-friendly ingredients.
There was also free BP checkup and Diet cum Weight Management Counselling.
There was a very good response and plenty of positive feed back by everyone who visited. In fact, there were 'Pre-Event' order bookings  -  much to the satisfaction of the Student Trainees .Post-Event Bookings continued, even after everything was sold out.
The Dept. of Beauty Cosmetology & Hair Styling also displayed some  handmade organic products manufactured at their department and related to their field. The ' natural 'make-up' & 'hair care' commodities went out fast !

Maha Shivratri @ Poly Campus

There were interesting mentions on painstaking efforts of Poly’s Campus teachers.The individual interest and concern for students plus the  ‘all important’ training for jobs and facilitating employment, whenever wherever possible - in a big way!


'Independence Day' Anniversary Celebrations : 15th August, 2016

The first event of the Session : 2016-2017 commenced with the noble 'Independence Day' Anniversary celebrations. As per traditional custom, the alphabetic order of departments was followed.Therefore, selected students from the Department of Advertising, PR & Business Studies took the lead . They sang in unison a 'Desh Premi' song and one of the students also spoke on the general Mic, for the occasion. She gave an interesting slant on the celebrations by recalling all the recent achievements of the country. All students gave an added flavour to the occasion, by coming to Campus  - in the traditional  Indian attire.

The honour of flag-hoisting this year, went to the Head of Travel ,Tourism & Ticketing - Mrs. Bela Nayyar , at the Tonga Lawns of the Campus.

 May we never forget the sacrifices for our Independence , by that brave generation. May our Nation live long and strong!

Wishing you all Happy Baisakhi, Ram Navami and Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Jayanti

Holi @Poly Campus- 2016

Self-defence Workshop on the Occasion of World Women's Day

19th of Jan, 2016
Visit by Curriculum Consultant & Professor - Musician Therapist ,
from ANU (Australian National University), Canberra ~ for Interactive Talk.

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!
