Culture is the customs, ideas, and beliefs of a particular society and country while cultural activities are activities that connected to the culture. Gone are the days when only academic programs were the only activities organized in colleges and all students focused on that. With the changing trend we have noticed a major difference in the field of academics too. Students don’t want to be bookworms; they look for other options that could help them in the future. Besides, this in this high tech world, every student wants to acquire knowledge in every field to stay updated. Co-circular activities play a vital role in the life of students; the aim of the NHITM’s CULTURAL CLUB is to identify various important days and to initiate the celebration of the same. The club celebrates various events for the benefit of the students so as to provide them the opportunity to explore their talents.
