Congratulations to Shivam who played the UP state finals in Varanasi last week in the under-18 shooting event, which now allows him to move on to the Indian nationals in December / January.
Diwali is one of the most important festivals celebrated in India. It is celebrated on the darkest night of the year, which usually falls sometime in the beginning of November. Diwali, though, is the festival of lights.
Mahindra College sets itself apart from the generic principles of UWCs with its own strongly worded Mission Statement: “Graduates are politically and environmentally aware agents of change, with a life-long commitment to seeking creative solutions to global, regional and local conflicts.”
In keeping with tradition November was no shave month (at least for the boys!)
The Untold of the Unknown
I am a first year student from Pune; before joining the college I studied at the Abhinava Vidyalaya High School up to 10th standard. I hadn't heard about UWC until my friend applied and, after talking to her and checking out the college website, I felt the IB curriculum and the philosophy, aims and objectives of the college were something I could relate to.
Navratri, literally translates to “nine nights” and is, as the name implies, a celebration that lasts nine nights: nine for each of the nine forms of Durga, the Indian goddess of strength and the feminine creative force of the universe.
