The Association for Inter-Religious Dialogue
The first activity of the association, conducted in September 2008, was an essay competition on the topic "Commercialisation of Indian Festivals". The winners were: Hazel Pinto - FYBcom A (1st place), Rebekha Joseph -FYBcom B (2nd place) and Alison Rodrigues - FYBcom A (3rd place)
The second activity, in October 2008, was a poster- making competition depicting any Indian festival which brought out our students’ imaginative and artistic side. Later in the same month we organised a powerpoint presentation on South Indian culture titled 'Welcome to South India'’
In December we screened the film 'Khuda Ke Liye', which beautifully looked at the implications caused by marital traditions in religions
In January we organised a visit to the Sai Baba Mandir in Kandivli (E) .It gave the students an insight into the Hindu religion and showcased the various deities of the religion.
Our final activity in February was 'A Trip to Nepal' which was a presentation that brought out the culture and traditions of Nepal through enactments and role-play by the students.
