    Music Club -

    We believe that music is not only some notes and bits, it is made up of feelings of hearts. The club is not about three or four people who arrange some events, it is a group of people who play or sing good stuff, or those who just love listening to music. It is a club in which people meet and enjoy music let their feelings out from their heart and express it through music. The club is proud of the diverse forms of music that it portrays .


    The club has the bands as its functional units. Over the past years there have been bands playing genres ranging from the blues, fusion and funk to progressive rock, thrash and metal.

    Dance Club -

    Does the musical energy emanating out of the thunderous beats resonate through every molecule of your existence, and you find yourself magically grooving and dancing to the tunes of the rhythm? Do you believe dance is more than just the movements, a means of expression of your inner self-your emotions and feelings and passions- a form of art more heavenly, which gives you an escape to your own universe?

    Drama Club -

    When you are at your wits end and your reputation is being ransacked by your own cronies you go back to only one option that you have, “Acting” ! Such is the sheer power of acting that it can even get a bawdy guy look innocent and it can even make a slumdog look like a millionaire.


    Right from scripting and staging plays to performing Mimes on stage, from making short movies to shouting heart out in Nukkads, this probably is the most active club througout the year; you will join just not a club, you will join a family!
