Seven years of new beginnings, seven years of fruition. Ever since its conception, Atharv has been the most dynamic, enriching and, of course, the largest cultural, management and literary fest in Central India. This culmination of manifested dreams fulfilled visions and burgeoning enthusiasm by participants and the IPM fraternity alike. The world, no easy way to say it, is going through a crisis. People are suffering. There pain, there is agony, and the silence on the streets captures it all. But we all, together, are strong. We are gritty. Our combined resilience outsmarts challenges never seen before and shows us a path of growth, which we’ll tread on together. So, looking towards a more robust, energised and brighter present, Atharv is back: in your lives, in your screens and most importantly, in your heart.
Our growth has, more or less, been exponential in the better part of the last decade. We have our own star-studded comedy gala with pioneers like Zakir Khan, Biswa Kalyan, Sapan Verma and Rahul Subramaniam over the past few years, with Karunesh Talwar and Devesh Dixit being the most recent addition to this gala. Over the years, the feeling of laughter, happiness and fulfilment has been there as a sacred fire for Atharv, making it what it is today. At the same time, we found ourselves revelling to the beats of Vh1 Supersonic and Sunburn, who rocked our EDM nights and at the same time found solace to the melodies of Indeep Bakshi and Arjun Kanungo.
The previous edition of Atharv was seen as the biggest edition of the fest, with talent from all over the country embracing the virtual edition as a new normal. This year, Atharv’21 brings you a bigger, better and more spectacular edition of the fest spurring with a level of creativity and talent never seen before! Embracing the impact music has had on each of our lives, the theme for this edition of Atharv is “Healing with Harmony”.
Having tunes and melodies for each and every part of the emotional spectrum, some of us found solace in music, some of us found solitude. Some saw a reason to smile, while some found a reason to cry. We got the strength to go on; we found reasons to move on and got the energy to thrive on. It brought us together and forged bonds. So to acknowledge, embrace and relish this crucial part of our lives, let’s together heal with harmony.
There’s music for everyone, the same way Atharv has events that would stimulate each and every part of your mind, giving a wholesome experience. We provide platforms, opportunities and stages where you can explore and find your best self. Be it our B-plan event, Avant-Garde, where the winning entrepreneur takes it all or Chaitanya, bringing the inner leader outside, there is growth for all. We have multiple domains appraising numerous qualities: a B-quiz: Pragnya, HR, and Marketing events: like Headhunter and Vendition Vendetta, Finopoly, the Finance Event, Chaitanya, the leadership event, and Devil’s Advocate, the mock trial. Along with out-of-the-box events like Game of Shadows, the game theory events; Imperium, the business strategy event and E-conjecture, the economics event; we have some up new events in sports management and creativity to blow your minds off.
Atharv also invites the young champions, the cream of this country, via the platform of the Pi-Quiz, coming from a diverse background and giving a particularly challenging examination. With 60 students from grades IX-XII battling it out in the fields of Game Theory, Logic and Behaviour students get exposed to the level of intellectual rigour IIM Indore endorses.
Considering the vast multi-dimensional events on managements that Atharv has, it is normal for people to correlate it as a fest for the stereotypical ‘geeks’. But gladly, we’re far from it. We have ten cultural events, ranging from music and dance to gaming. Bailar (Solo/Duet) and Verve (Group) are events where you can dance your heart out. Participate in Crescendo (Acoustic) and Delirium (Battle of Bands) if you are all about music. We even have events for photography and film-making, namely ISO and Vignette. In addition to all of this, we have Permadeath, the LAN Gaming Event, Clash of Cults, the pop culture quiz, and Halla Bol, the Street Play Event. Lastly, we have the show-stopper, Vanity, where you get to walk the ramp and show the world your potential.
On top of all of this, we have our two flagship events. The first being Inter-Varsity Debate, a British Parliamentary Style Debate where you test your wits and words as you engage in a war to defend your stance. The second is Audace, a one of its kind theatre event, where you can be in your own skin and unleash creativity at a platform never seen before.
Last year it was big, and this year we’re making it grand. It’s coming, and it’ll be here before you know it. The day you step out of your house and join us after all this ends, we’ll make sure that you have a good time. After all, you deserve it. Stay tuned for more updates.
