It has also witnessed mesmerising performances from Vh1 Supersonic and Sunburn, as well as captivating musical acts by Anuv Jain, King, and Neeti Mohan.
Now, with the unveiling of the official tagline for Atharv Ranbhoomi ’23—Dream. Dare. Deliver—the festival aims to be a platform where dreams can be nurtured, celebrated, and transformed into tangible realities. Participants are encouraged to embrace daring pursuits, pushing their limits within the arena of Atharv Ranbhoomi to courageously take risks and shatter records. Let Atharv Ranbhoomi serve as a testament to their dedication, commitment, and ability to convert dreams into tangible achievements.

We are thrilled to introduce “Runveer,” an exciting marathon event that forms a part of our fest. At Atharv Ranbhoomi, we believe in leveraging our platform to create awareness and drive positive change by aligning ourselves with pressing social causes. Each year, we choose a theme that reflects our commitment to supporting various social issues. Our previous themes have focused on honoring our soldiers, promoting peace and harmony, environmental conservation, spreading education, supporting the elderly, addressing homelessness, and combating rape and gender discrimination. These themes have resonated deeply with our participants, and we have witnessed overwhelming support from individuals who stand united in advocating for these causes. This unified support has translated into tangible actions that contribute to long-term societal impact. At Runveer, we have designed multiple categories to cater to diverse needs and preferences, ensuring that there’s something for everyone. Participants can look forward to a day filled with exhilarating activities, delicious food, and an opportunity to prioritize their fitness. Some of the major highlights of Runveer include energizing Zumba sessions, live performances by a talented jazz band, captivating weapon displays, and enthralling bagpipers show.
Atharv Ranbhoomi also extends its welcome to young champions from across the country through The Pi-Quiz (TPQ), a national-level talent hunt. TPQ aims to discover the brightest minds in the nation and unearth their creative and ingenious ideas. By demonstrating critical thinking and analytical skills, students in classes IX-XII are introduced to the intellectual rigor endorsed by IIM Indore.
Atharv Ranbhoomi is also a cultural fest that embraces and promotes creative talent and awe-inspiring skills. With ten cultural events, including solo and group dance competitions like Bailar and Verve, the acoustic event Crescendo, the filmmaking event Vignette, the photography event iSO, and Synquizition- a Cultural, and Management Quiz, participants
will have ample opportunities to showcase their talents. Additionally, Delirium offers an exhilarating stage for musicians and their bands, while Halla Bol showcases the art of street plays.
