“Art is way to the absolute and to the essence of human life. The aim of the art is not one-sided promotion of spirit, soul and senses; but the opening of all human capacities- thought, feeling, will- to the life rhythm of the world of nature. So will the voiceless voice be heard and the self be brought into harmony with it.” Bruce Lee

The thought about the Art above mentioned is very true from the point of view of the development of Human Being. Each and every type of an art plays an important role in the life of human being for his development up to the fullest extent. That’s why the freedom of speech and expression is protected by Constitution of India. This right is very much fundamental as because every art is nothing but an expression of human being which has an impact on human life as well as his development from a ‘person’ to ‘human being’. Thus, along with the formal education; the students are required to be supported for various arts in their life. This is achieved through various cultural activities in our institution.

Keeping this aim into mind, the Cultural Department is active in our college since many years. Students enthusiastically participate in various cultural activities of our college as well as various competitions. Each and every activity is not only an ‘activity’, but it is an unforgettable ‘experience’ for the students as well as the institution as because it is nothing but prod feeling of the institution for the success which has been achieved by our students. It gives us an immense pleasure to present the graph of success by our artist students through this report. This report is nothing but the Art Film of which the Students are the ‘Directors’ and teachers/ institution is the ‘Producer’.
