JMI organises cultural festival ‘Seher: Towards a New Dawn’

New Delhi, November: Seher, 2022, the cultural festival of the Department of Social Work, Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) was held from November 28 to 30, 2022. True to its name, Seher brought with it the spirit and energy of a new dawn, being celebrated after a gap of 2 years. 14 events spanning sports, academics and art were held over a course of three days attracting over 500 students.

The Department’s subject association, under the guidance of the student advisor, Dr. Rashmi Jain, took the lead in organising this event beginning its preparations months in advance to ensure maximal participation.

The first day saw sports and games for the teaching and non-teaching staff of the Department of Social Work followed by Gully Cricket, Badminton, and Kho-kho. The excitement was palpable in the students, faculty, and non-teaching staff alike. The second day saw academic events such as ‘Samvaad’, Speech, Ad-Mad, Policython, Quiz, and Nukkad Natak besides an Open-Mic session where the audience was treated with melodious voices of singers from across the university. Photography, Slam Poetry, Poster Making, and Rap Battle were the events for the third day which also culminated with a musical evening.

All the faculty members from the Department of Social Work agreed to be the judges for various events. The students from all the courses of the department (MA Social Work, MA Human Resource Management, Advanced Diploma in Public Health and PhD) tirelessly worked in organising the events while not missing an opportunity to participate in each one of them. The students also did an extraordinary job in decorating the Department for the fest, making it lively and welcoming for all participants with the handcrafted recyclable décor.

The Department lawns and corridors were echoing with the infectious laughter and thrill and exuberance of students. To once again assemble, gather and enjoy festivities together especially on this scale was made unimaginable in COVID. The optimism, energy of all the organisers, participants and audiences alike allowed us to cast away the looming shadow of the ‘new normal’ in Covid to create a new synergy.
