Story Writing
Movie Screening

Movie Screenings

The Faculty also arranged 'Movie Screenings' to keep the students titillated in the learnings of their respective subjects. Reading a book and watching a movie based on that novel helped students to understand the details better.(The movies were- Pride and Prejudice, Frankenstein and Train to Pakistan)

Synthesizing Tombstones

The misconception about literature is that it is about stories to be read. However, the stories don't die and they live when the readers feel them. The Final Year students, at the Department of English, paid a homage to the eponymous playwright Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) , who pricked their conscience to not just read the written word but react to it. The students related to the Brechtian world and remembered their favorite characters from his play "The Good Person of Szechwan '' (1953) in their own way through traits which appealed to them. The activity immortalised the characters of Shen Te, Shui Ta, Shu Fu and Wang through their memorial tombstones. The tribute brought alive the significance of a classic as these characters didn't just remain on pages rather stood for a universal virtue which sensitized the students to the difficulties of becoming "the good person".
