Students Activities & Clubs

Adventure Club

The Miranda House Adventure Club was started in 2006 by enthusiastic students and faculty members. Its motto is Saahas...Feel the Risk. The club aims at encouraging students to go beyond their perceived limits, develop self-reliance, self-discipline, and team work. Activities like River Rafting Expeditions, Trekking, Rope Rappelling that focus on nurturing the ability to plan, organize and take decisions, and foster qualities of cooperation, time management, leadership, and problem solving are organized each year by specialists in the field. In 2014-16 the club facilitated the participation of students and teachers in a three days certificate course in still water sports at Pong Dam, Himachal Pradesh in collaboration with the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports.

Film Club

For those who are interested in learning the language of cinema and for those who are just plain movie buffs, Celluloid, the Film Club, offers a wide variety ranging from the popular to the parallel. Discussions with filmmakers and critical analysis form a part of the activities. In the year 2015-16 the film club screened several documentaries The Textures of Loss by Pankaj Butalia; Fragments of the Past by Uma Chakravarti, renowned historian and former faculty member; Unfreedom based on the subject of sexual politics; and a short film In the Mood for Love by Aakriti Kohli and Sandeep Kumar Singh. The films were followed by discussion with their makers. Lastly, the documentaries Killing Us Softly by Jean Kilbourne on Women and Popular Culture was screened.

Dramatics Club

Miranda House takes pride in the creative productions of its dramatic societies that have carved a niche for themselves in the serious theatre circles of Delhi.

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. The Dramatic Art & Design Academy (DADA) selected Ariels as one of the only five colleges that were to perform in the Little Theatre Group (LTG) Auditorium in September 2010. 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.

NSS

National Service Scheme, popularly known as NSS, was launched in 1969 to celebrate the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation. During four decades of fruitful existence more than 2.7 crore students have so far benefitted from this student-volunteer programme in the country. The main aim of NSS is to facilitate personality development of students through social and community service. Miranda House NSS unit works to bridge the gulf between the educated and uneducated sections of the community. The aims and objectives of NSS are to work among and with people, to develop a desire to serve the weaker section of the community, and to gain skills in democratic leadership. These aims are sought to be achieved through a variety of programmes: by means of manual work, working with welfare institutions, educational work, and production oriented work and in emergency. Each student volunteer devotes 120 hours in one academic year. Inter-college programmes and camps are also held. In the process of hosting a variety of programmes and engaging in work with other welfare organizations, our students are empowered with organizational skills and get exposure to democratic leadership. NSS members periodically interact with the Harijan Sewak Sangh students and invite them to perform at the college. Regular visits are paid to orphanages such as Asha Kiran where volunteers teach mentally challenged students. They also act as readers and writers for visually challenged students from various academic backgrounds.

NCC

Miranda House has a strong and vibrant NCC programme which strives to:

  • Develop leadership, build strength of character, comradeship, spirit of sportsmanship and ideal of service;
  • Create a force of disciplined and trained persons who could, in a national emergency, be of assistance to the country;
  • Provide training to students with a view to developing in them officer-like qualities, thus also enabling them to obtain commissions in the armed forces.

Miranda House NCC Company has a total strength of 160 cadets all enrolled in the Army Wing. An important change in NCC policy in 2008-09 took place whereby the training period was reduced from three to two years, thus enabling second year students also to join NCC. The NCC unit of Miranda House is proud that one of its senior cadets has been commissioned as an Officer in the Indian Army.

NCC regularly organises annual summer training camps. Other activities include mountaineering courses, firing/shooting competitions, etc. B and C Certificate Examinations are conducted at the end of the first and second year of NCC training, respectively. The cadets selected on the basis of high sense of duty, discipline and smart turnout are permitted participation in various activities, and amongst them are the Independence Day Parade, NCC Rally, Republic Day Camp, the Prime Minister's Rally and the President's At Home. The best cadet on an All India basis qualifies for award of NCC scholarship of Rs.5000 per month for a year. The achievements of our cadets have made Miranda House NCC one of the best in the Delhi Directorate.

If you want to experience campus life, Miranda House hostel is the place to be!

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.
