The Department of Management, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri (Kollam) Campus, celebrated this Onam exceptionally well with all the limited resources available, in the current Covid-19 scenario. Second-year and first-year students took the initiative and contributed a great deal of effort toward the success of this Virtual Onam fest.
The first set of programs started in the form of competitions including Trivia, which was an Instagram Quiz program relating to Onam, conducted every day from August 20 to September 4, 2020. In the quiz program, there was a total of 68 winners. The next competition was the photo contest for ‘Malayali Manka’ and ‘Kerala Sreeman’ titles and finally a pookalam contest.
On Instagram, 12 different talent entries including musical, drawing and different artworks on behalf of ANANDOLSAVAM 2020, were posted. All the entries were excellent. In addition to all this, first-year MBA students conducted an online Onam celebration on the eve of Avittom, September 1, 2020. It was a memorable experience for everyone. All the first year and second year students and faculty members participated in this live event. The online celebration started with a prayer, and thereafter, various talents among the students were showcased. Through this event, within the limitations, everyone got an opportunity to enjoy the talent fest offered by 10 students from both the first year and second year.
The Department as a family is committed to stay together even in circumstances like this. Onam is all about get-togethers and sharing happiness. Together, we celebrated this year’s ANANDOLSAVAM in new ways and made it a remarkable fest in the history of the Department.
