The word ‘Aaruush’ translates to ‘the first rays of the sun’. And that’s what it was, at the time of its inception back in 2007, the rays of the sun, which would eventually enlighten the lives of many people for years to come. Started by four visionary final year students of the college, Aaruush was initially intended to be a technical fest; consisting of 26 events and over 3000 participants, but it has exceeded the expectations of all. And so successful was the idea, that the inauguration was presided over by the former president of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
The Theme: “Towards Infinity”
Getting across the message of the need for innovations and technical breakthroughs to create a benchmark in the industry and make an actual difference. We believe in overcoming obstacles and exceeding expectations with tireless hard work and dedication.
These are just a few of the words we use to describe things that are Infinite. Aaruush uses these ideas to create a platform showcasing a plethora of talent. We find infinity in the number of stars in the night sky, the number of raindrops in an ocean, the memories hidden behind the lens of an eye and the number of ideas that emerge out of minds alike.
Aaruush towards Infinity leads these minds towards the path of inspiration, discovery, growth, and achievement. It brings out the talents of more than 40,000 of its participants with utmost enthusiasm and gratification. With mind-boggling events and eye-catching highlights, Aaruush ’19 steps into its 13th year with the ambition of leaping across the stars and furthering the very definition of infinity.
The Motto: “Rising in the spirit of innovation”
Striving to change the world with the power of innovation and cumulative efforts of bright ignited minds to bridge the gap between technological advancements and societal expectations is the bedrock of Aaruush. We believe in constantly rising and approaching problems with innovative solutions to make the world a sound place to live in.
Aaruush is back, and it’s back with a bang! The previous year, bands like The Local Train, Attva, The Nonviolinist Project and single artists like Samarth Swarup were leading the line at the Musical Nites. With exemplary leaders inaugurating the 5-day fest, the students were super excited to witness Varun Thakur as the main takeaway from the first day. Before the fest, the students took part in numerous activities like T-Summit, Hack Summit, SRM Run and Colosseum. As the fest progressed, students took part in various domains, like Bluebook, Fundaz, X-Zone, Magefficie, etc. The 12th edition of Aaruush saw a footfall of 70,000, over 10 workshops, 10 luminary addresses, 60+ events, thrilling challenges and championships and a plethora of learning opportunities hand in hand with fun and intellectually stimulating activities.
Our race towards infinity is fast-paced and reaching higher standards as we go. Aaruush ’19 is going to reach greater heights; we’ve seen the black-hole now so for team Aaruush the sky is also no limit.
This year, the national-level Techno-Management fest has garnered sponsorships from IBM, Casio, Nikon, PayPal, Cisco, INOX, Byju’s, Microsoft and The Hindu, a few names among other famous investors. Highlights, Workshops, Championships, Initiatives, Challenges, and Events are the groups that will be heading all the activities performed on campus.
