“Gokulashtami” is dear to everyone at Amrita. The entire campus reverberates with joy and enthusiasm and makes it truly an Amrita family event. Stories about “Lord Krishna” and His life and messages are portrayed in songs, skits, dance performances and in processions. Preparations to celebrate Gokulashtami commence a week earlierand the campus gears up for the beautiful occasion. Students team up to make the best float of “Lord Krishna” and work on a suitable theme for the occasion. Teamwork and creativity is at the best displayed here. It is fascinating to see idols of Lord Krishna at every junction and it is a truly a loving experience to watch children dressed up in various avatars of Lord Krishna. From the entrance to the hostels, the entire campus wears a festive look, adored by colour, glitters of smiles and celebration.

The event showcases the cultural heritage of India and is fondly cherished by every Amritian. Fragrance of flowers fills the air with pounding music and bhajans .As the procession unfolds, the enthusiasm and cheer grows multi-fold and one can witness great fanfare with loud chants in praise of Lord Krishna. The day-long event is an enthralling one, showcasing the team spirit of every department, who with their members take part in the procession cheered by the vibrant audience. ASB is always at its best with full vigor and passion and creates a memorable experience to carry home. From “Kurukshetra” to “HrinayaVadam”, Team ASB has presented itself at its best The day’s fanfare culminates with bhajans, distribution of sweets and declaration of winners in various events. To summarize, the whole event is a visual treat and an experience every ASB Alumnus would fondly treasure all their lives.


A much awaited occasion every year at ASB is “Onam”. The campus symbolically presents the coming of “Onam” with more beautiful weather, smiles of blooming flowers and rich green surrounding. The entire campus presents a scenetic beauty of “Golden Autumn” presenting a perfect setting for celebration and “Onam” is the highlight here. Sure, a perfect setting and a more than perfect occasion to celeberate. As is known, “Onam” signifies the visit of Mahabali to Earth. Amrita is all set to welcome the blessed moment with beautiful arrangement of flowers “Pookolam” and the traditional food extravaganza “OnamSadhya” offered on banana leaves.

ASB heartily participates in the offering with much love and zeal. Adorned in traditional Kerala attire, ASB transforms into festivity and joy. “Joy of giving” and “Joy of Sharing” symbolizes the occasion and lights up the hearts of every ASBian, when they serve food to all members of Amrita family. It is a blissful experience for every ASBian to experience and share love and giving, portraying the true spirit of Onam. The essence of Onam “mavelinadu…..amodhathodevasikkumkalam” echoes in every heart. What a moment to be a part of and cherish all life time!!!


Two days that an ASBian can never forget during his 2 years of MBA program are the days of Pragati. Pragati is an Annual B-School Festival in the School of Business at Amrita University. Pragati has evolved as the most challenging B-fest in South India. Students at ASB work hard with faculty membersand alumni to innovate and present the best theme of topical importance every year. They present this B-Fest a fun filled learning experience for the participating colleges. The 20th edition of Pragati happened on 3rd and 4th of December 2016. The theme for the 20th edition of Pragati was “Digital India” with a slogan “business in bytes”. The two day event demands an enormous amount of team effort from all fellow students in ASB.

The event starts with selection of core team and the forums. While the Core team took care of the overall coordination and planning for the event, the forum gears up with exciting business games to add value to the students participating in Pragati. Fund raising was through corporate sponsors in and around Coimbatore. Students go around after class hours to look for sponsors who are interested and more suitable for the theme that they choose. The idea is to bring in the best suitable sponsor who could be benefited and also participating in pride to Pragati. Every year this starts with designing the sponsor card and other event collaterals which are completely designed by the students. Parallel to the fund raising the forum teams would be designing their domain related business games along with the guidance of faculty and alumni.

Strong alumni and student interactions has been the strength of Pragati all along. A sound alumni network spanning across continents help and guide to make Pragati a great success story. Apart from the games and coordination for Pragati, the students and administrative staff toil hard to decorate the entire ASB premises to look more suitable for the theme. The decorations go over night and it creates a beautiful face-lift to the campus of ASB. Every year theme related decorations leave a lasting memory for the students, staff and alumni. The 3rd of December, day 1 of Pragati saw ASBians dressed up informals and bringing in the elegance of professionalism among the participants. Around 120 students across India registered for the event. The ASB building was overflowing with eager participants running through the scheduled events and games.

It was indeed a busy yet memorable day for all ASBian’s coordinating and supporting the event. The food and non- food stalls were coordinated and run by fellow ASBian’s, says ArjunAnantaNarayanan, Vice President- Corporate Relations of Pragati 2016. Pragati is not just a business event but also lots of fun. It is filled with colours of joy. To make this true,the evening cultural festival in SKH (Shri Krishna Hall) followed by the DJ night brought in the energy and joy among the students and coordinators, says Arjun. The 4th of December, day 2 of Pragati was the final round of all the flagship events . Flagship events included the Best Manager and B-Plan. These have been conducted for the past 19 years in Pragati and the ASBian’s have never failed to disappoint the participants in making it more interesting and challenging to win.

The eve of day 2 saw a warm closure to the 3 months of hardship that the ASBians put together to make Pragati a grand success. The closing ceremony was presided by Col. Korak Mathew and Anupam Raghuvanshi who gave away the accolades for the winners. It was indeed a tough day as the 20th edition of Pragati was coming to an end. But it is a culmination of a wonderful team effort and it gave every ASBian the unique opportunity to explore their strengths and break open our shells. Arjun also added that it can be assured that this was the best experience to carry from ASB and would last in all ASBians’hearts.


Bringing out the passion in you….
The intra-ASB counterpart to Pragati is Utsav,a sports and cultural extravaganza. Fiercely competed for and passionately participated in, Utsav is a living exhibition of determination and the winning instinct without deferring from the path of healthy sportsmanship. Soon after the mid-trimester exams of the first year, to shake you up from the slumber that you may have fallen into, ASB presents this two week fiesta. This is when the fences that set apart the seniors and juniors fall. Students are split into four groups which compete against one another in arts, sports and literature. The best part of Utsav is that everyone gets a chance to explore their hidden talents. A few of the students go on stage for the first time in their lives and have never felt better. The best lesson learnt is that “There is Nothing You Cannot Do!!!’.

There is dancing, singing, painting, story writing, indoor and outdoor sports and many more activities to bring out their passion. Utsav is not about talent alone but also courage. The best part which leaves behind the sweetest memories is the backstage ‘hungama’ during UTSAV. The droopy eyed late night dance practices, the group music trials that never strike the right note, the tableau practices where it becomes too difficult to stand still, the mid-night flood-lighted football warm-ups, the face painting trials, the chaos and confusion when your team is not ready and the last minute preparations for the quiz. All said and done, it is the team spirit and the confidence, that Utsav leaves behind, matters. When the curtains are drawn down, it is a sense of achievement and joyful memories, which lasts for a lifetime through these chaos, confusion, fun, and practices amidst our regular classes.


ASB always preserves the emotions of Indian culture and heritage. Ganesh Chaturthi is one among them and it is a beautiful event which brings everyone together to invoke the blessings of Lord Ganesha. ASBians look forward to this auspicious day to celebrate togetherness and offer prayers to Lord Ganesha, the symbol of benevolence and courage. The colourful and majestic idol of Lord Ganesha is decorated with flowers and presented with sweets and other offerings with lots of love and devotion. The campus of ASB portrays a mood of happiness and celebration and it is important to note that this is not only an occasion of devotion to God, but it is an event of togetherness and bonding at ASB family. Our prayers to Lord Ganesha to bless ASB family with much cheer and prosperity!!


Holi is an important festival, much looked forward by all ASBians. Holi,is an important occasion for people to enhance the friendship with others. On the day of the Holi, ASB fills with joy where they can forget all their bitterness and throw ‘abira’ and colored water on each other. They prepare a variety of colors and use them only to disfigure the faces of others. They take pleasure in disfiguring each other’s faces irrespective of age or status. This is a wonderful occasion where even faculty and staff are dragged in with to celebrate with students..It is truly a beautiful occasion to rejoice and cherish!!
