“One must be always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us”
Club Sumantra- The literary club of IMNU has been working to create interest in literature among the students of Institute of Management, Nirma University (IMNU). IMNU aims for the overall development of its students and believes literature plays an important role in this process.
Sumantra’s activities are spread throughout the year with fun filled literary events. Last year we conducted Out of Box : a creative story writing competition with character swapping. It was not only hilarious but stood by its name. ‘Valar Morghulis’ an event under Perspective-Richter10 was conducted in which teams were asked to build a literary piece out of puzzles. It tested one’s creative thinking and their innovative minds. “Drop Of Ink”, Sumantra’s flagship event is a national level poem recitation event. Along with this, it held many quizzes and book reviews.
Sumantra also publishes an online magazine : “Bookworm” every semester with a different theme for every issue like monsoon, Halloween, etc. Creative entries for each theme from the students are invited to hone their literary skills and give them a platform to express their novice ideas. It is featured on the blog of IMNU.
Sumantra aims to keep the literary heart alive and be the one to revolutionise and stir thoughts. For us, there is no other joy comparable to the joy of reading. If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need”
