Fervour in the air,
You know it, Feel it here,
A whim, a fancy, to point it out,
Wondering if it was just another emotional bout…
Well, here in TAPMI campus it’s definitely not a “bout”. The buzz is there, the cause for it no doubt is Atharva! If you are an ardent Harry Potter fan, try recollecting how the Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry suddenly transforms itself and puts on a completely new garb. That’s exactly what has happened to TAPMI. Last evening, you remember seeing the same dull brick and mortar walls, and next morning you are wondering who painted Atharva all over the place!
Walking around the campus you can see bright posters, and tall banners adorning most of the walls. The place looks like it has suddenly broken out into a riot of colours. The mess, the academic block, TAPMI greens… all of it have miraculously altered, and are now united by one spirit, one sensation that runs widespread, Atharva is here!
It’s not just the campus, but the streets of Manipal and Udupi as well which have been adorned with Atharva decorations and promotions! The majestic banners bring a huge deal of pride to every single TAPMIan, for he belongs to the family which is organizing one of the biggest ever events to hit Manipal!
The zest has mesmerized the students too! You could find a few pacing around loaded with sheets, chart papers etc. while others gather in groups, and have fervent discussions about what events to participate in. The campus of a management school never seemed so pulsating and animate with vigour! Just being here, in and around the campus, makes you want to plummet in and contribute to the gung ho.
Many students are still unaware of their true potential and Atharva becomes a giant step towards sensitising them and motivating students to develop interest towards application of management skills beyond the pages of their books. The events aim to unleash the managerial potential within.
More than the fest or the events or the competitions, it’s the mounting, building up liveliness, the vibrancy around the campus, that has made the wait for the climax a gala event in itself. The anticipation for Atharva mysteriously manages to glorify the journey!
