Amrita Kalotsavam 2019 was officially inaugurated on April 12, 2019 by Dr. Bipin Nair, Dean, School of Biotechnology, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri. The colourful festivities began with a prayer followed by lighting the lamp. Dr. Bipin Nair talked about the importance of art in the life of a science student. He spoke of his days in college where he never shied away from the stage and urged students to showcase their talents without nervousness and hesitation. The day also marked the inauguration of the arts club at the School of Biotechnology.
The first day was full of musical symphonies, theatrical actions and synchronized dancing. Students participated enthusiastically in large numbers. The second day was saved for group events, wherein students co-ordinated among themselves to present seamlessly beautiful pieces of art.
The two day extravaganza was held in two different stages to facilitate easy and smooth continuity of events. The off stage events which included literary competitions and artistry were held the week before. The event was successful in not only displaying the diverse talents of the students but also in providing a change from the usual academic scene. The event ended with the declaration of the overall champions, which was won by the B. Sc. students of Semester 4 at School of Biotechnology.
