Students Activities & Clubs
People read for various reasons. Some read to broaden their perspective of the world and learn new things, some read to learn how to articulate their thoughts, some read to get inspiration, some read to get their mind free and see faraway places through the eye of their mind, some read to relax their mind after a tiring day full of hard work, deadlines and reports, while some read just for fun.
Whatever may be your reason for wanting to read, we at the SAC BOOK CLUB are committed to helping you get hold of the book of your choice. It is our goal to provide a definitive reading experience to the members of IIT Kanpur, be it in procuring books, indexing them for easy access, making them available for reading or in letting you review them and see reviews others have made.

Committed to the cause of promotion of Hindi, we seek to provide a platform for students to experience and explore various avenues of Hindi literature and realising its relevance in our lives. Fun activities like crosswords, dumb charades and JAM are juxtaposed with more 'solemn' activities like poetry, debating, creative writing etc. to promote our belief that the beauty of literature lies not just in obscure seeming lines of poetry but is intertwined with our lives through its multifarious expressions.
