The ceremonious reception accorded to Maveli accompanied by BBA ‘subjects’ in traditional attire, and the interdepartmental competitions ranging from Flower Carpet (Pookalam) to arm wrestling, cultural extravaganza, blindfolded breaking pot, and to tug-of-war contest, made Onam celebrations in the campus on August 25th Friday, a dazzling experience for all. MCA Association won the ever-rolling trophy for Pookalam competition. In the interdepartmental arm-wrestling competition, George Joseph from MCA and Athira Thomas from BBA were the winners. BSW students stole the show winning the first prize for the interdepartmental cultural programme competition. In the neck-and-neck tug-of-war interdepartmental competition, BCom Co-operation students (Gents Contest) and BSW students (Ladies Contest ) bagged the championship. The message programme performed by MCJ students added colour to the Onam gala. Physical Education Director Nithin Kuttan Sir, along with Biju John Sir and Sajin Sir from the Department of Social Work, and P.F. Previn Sir from the Department of Journalism coordinated the programme.
