VIHANGAM 2015

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
- Benjamin Franklin


The above words very well define the learning methodology practiced at IIT Kanpur, where the transfer of knowledge is emphasized through “Involvement”. The MBA department at IITK is well known for realizing and meeting the corporate world’s requirement for Techno-Managerial skill sets. And the learning experience can be judged by the presence of erudite professors. But its not only education which ties students to the teachers, the department enjoys a strong overall bond among its members.
And to strengthen this bond the students organize a cultural night “Vihangam” in the summer term every year where all the members (students, professors and supporting staff) participate in rejuvenating performances followed by informal dinner treat. 
The night hosted casio performance, mimicry show, open house quiz and many solo/group dance and music performances, but the most happening performance of the night was melodies sung by Dr. Uday S Rucherla. We are very thankful to all the faculty and supporting staff members for their presence and making the night a forever memory for all.
