Anukriti, the Hindi Dramatic Society, has had an uninterrupted history of prestigious productions since 1957 and is now treated at par with professional theatre groups. Each year, it produces a range of Nukkad Nataks, i.e., street plays, one-act plays and a full-length play. The full length play is the crowning event of the annual Anukriti calendar. Some of the more celebrated productions have been Khabsoorat Bahu, Godan, Jasma Odhen, Dhruvswamini, Reshmi Rumaal, Jia, and Kailasmani. The Hindi Academy of Delhi collaborated with Anukriti for its th ambitious project, Dastaan Ek Shehzaadi Ki, during the celebrations of 150 year of First War of Independence. In 2015-16, Andher Nagri by Bhartendu, a satire on state and administration, was staged. Anukriti holds its auditions for membership in the last week of July or first week of August. It organizes workshops for students, often in close collaboration with the National School of Drama. Miranda House has several alumna who are luminaries in the world of theatre, including Anuradha Kapoor, Tripurari Sharma and Hema Singh.
Ariels, the English Dramatic Society, has been producing plays since the 1950s. Ariels has always pioneered out of the ordinary productions and been a trendsetter in its use of innovative directorial devices, all of which have received appreciation in the past. Over the year students discover their interests and organize themselves into the many teams that provide support for lights, sound, set design and of course, script writing, production and acting. Ariels was invited to take part in the prestigious Ibsen Festival'10.

Two scripts were merged for this project Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House and Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure. The end product, illustrative of Ariels ventures, brought together not only both the scripts but also different cultures and time periods. Ariels also participated in the reputed Old World Festival at the India Habitat Center.

From making us meet the industry stalwarts to giving us a platform to showcase our talents, MH has set a standard on how quality education should be like! The college boasts of a well facilitated auditorium, an immensely happening canteen, Nescafe counter, sprawling lawns for studying/ chilling, in-house laundry service for the hostelers, clubs and societies and many other things.
Beautiful lawns (esp in winters...MH has won awards for its meticulous lawns!), where you can bask in the sun with a book & an orange is one of the best memories that i have. Besides this, preparing for the Fresher's Night or Hostel Night every year, lining up fun events, exploring the spookiest corners of the hostel, staying up late and looking for tuck in the middle of the night, playing pranks on the Warden & Matron and some other things not mentionable here, makes MH my best experiences so far! And not to mention the friends that I've made there (these friendships last forever, btw)...I am really happy that I decided to study in MH.
