Kalika 2K18, the10-day rural camp held at Vaniyapara from November 29 to December 8, 2018, was a stimulating experience for the 36 BSW second semester students who with the wide exposure received, shaped their social consciousness and mastered the art of adjustment and accommodativeness . Along with the Social Work Department staff, they repaired the dilapidated road, re-furbished three houses damaged in the unprecedented landslips and torrential rain in August 2018 and dug a toilet pit for a house without the basic necessities. A survey was conducted to assess the socio-economic and educational status of the people in the area and the impact of quarries in the area on the living conditions of the residents and on the environment. “Staying, working and cooking together as a batch mingling with the ordinary people, and adjusting ourselves with the inconveniences of the place was a thrilling experience,” said Diya Antony, the student coordinator. At the concluding function, Ayyankunnu Panchayath President Adv. Sheeja Sebastian, College Manager Fr. Dr. Thomas K.O., Principal Fr. Dr. Francis Karackat, Vaniyapara Parish Priest Fr. Xavier Puthiyaparambil, and Ward Member Vinod M spoke. A wide variety of cultural programmes performed by BSW students added colour to the rural camp.
