    "For tribal man space was the uncontrollable mystery. For technological man it is time that occupies the same role." -Marshall McLuhan Friends! We are in the twenty-first century, living in a technological universe in which we are always communicating. But technology-enabled, we have got used to the idea of being in a tribe of one, loyal to our own party. So...Brace yourselves up as here's a golden opportunity to escape out of this busy and cumbersome life and get ready for a hunt of the tribe you belong to, in search of your tribe-mates!


    "Yahoooo.....!! Chahe koi mujhejungleekahe..kehne do jeekehtarahe.....!!"

    Yes! We are here Celebrating Indian Cinema since there's no better conqueror we ever had when it comes to reuniting with our old lost siblings, friends, family members....! Whether they are lost in KumbhMela or in any jhamela, our Bollywood has neither failed nor will ever dwindle to explore a happy ending, irrespective of any tribe! Separated by nature, united by culture...unite together with your mates AGAIN but with some craziness of-course!! So come on people, get your antigens injected and hold your breath as for sure you are in no way going to chop the nose of our India Cinema off! All the best!

All the registered participants will be randomly divided in a group of 8 members where each group will be assigned a particular tribal name. 3. The group members won't be knowing who their tribe-mates are though they'll just know their tribe's name. 4. The participants will then be left in different arenas within the college campus without any knowlegde of where the rest of their 7 soulmates are. 5. Finally the actual task! Identify your tribe-mates, for instance, by loudly calling the names of the tribe you belong to and so will your other group members be doing in order to communicate. 6. Reunite.

    Something well begun is half done. In our case, the opening night is just the prelude to all the heart-thumping and fist-pumping mayhem that is set to follow..

    The onset of the annual celebration of the eclectically amassed bundle of creativeness is declared open for one and all amidst joy and fervour. Past editions of Sparsh have witnessed troops like Pryomania, Hungarian Face Team, Nigel Mead, Antriksh band, Hand Shadowgraphy artistes Amar and Sabyasachi Sen, Jay Walt, The Team of Laser Show. These maestros are surely and quiet aptly going to leave you wanting more!


    Arcane legends proclaim that the nerdy scientists and engineers you see during the day at SVNIT are in truth dancing superstars who on this one particular night clandestinely gyrate to the rhythmic tunes and groovy beats. The night mentioned is none other than the Dancing Night! From hip hop to contemporary to salsa, this night is a complete package of entertainment for each of you out there and you will definitely join in, swaying to the music.


    Attention, viewers! It has been reported by our men on the field that in the past few years, people attending the Singing Night in SVNIT have refused to leave the field, chanting “We want more!”; and this time around our covert sources state that the very same people who were responsible for the spreading this epidemic originally are conniving to do the same this time around. So beware, witness this night at your own risk!. Aptly titled as ‘Jhankar Beats’, this night witnesses the singing maestros amongst the students and professors alike, unifying one and all in the melodious sounds. SVNIT has its own share of Shaans and Shreya Ghoshals. You’ve got solo, duet and group performances singing a mixture of classical, western, rock, jazz, popular folklore music. It is a night to be felt from the heart, more than seen.


    People wait with abated breath, waiting for this night; the night that defines Sparsh. It’s the night where the folks see their idols in flesh and blood perform live in front of their very eyes. Yes you guessed it, it is the Celebrity Night! Almost the entire college empties out on the grounds for a night of fun and frolic, and party to the entertainment of the night – the celebrity. Many eminent and known personalities have graced the occasion with their presence. The stalwarts include Kailash Kker, K.K, Salim-Suleiman, Daler Mehndi, Euphoria, Mohit Chauhan, Gaurav Dagaonkar, Bombay Rockers and Parikrama. This night liberates the exhaustion and drains out the energy from everyone, ending the fest on a high note and in crescendo. If ever there was a perfect ending, this is that.


    Panache – The night where Fashion takes the centre stage and how! The night where each captivated viewer is forced to say- Fashion ka hai yeh Jalwa!

    The stage gives everyone a chance to prove themselves that they are the ones to lead the pack when it comes to showing off their talents. Set across various themes, it is one of the most tantalizing nights of all. The divas and hunks of the college display their beauty through the themes like Caribbean, The Mafia, Weddings, Corporate, Red Carpet and set the stage on fire. Furthermore, these tantalizing budding supermodels will garb themselves in apparel from all corners of the country in the cultural round.
