Academics are merely one aspect of the growth of a proactively responsible and contributive manager. Arts, from dance, music to drama, helps one in using creativity to drive innovation. For every MBA graduate the need of the hour, is a holistic development, i.e development in distinct areas such as physical, social, creative, intellectual and spiritual. A holistic approach to education is one that puts an emphasis on the development of skills. The pleasant blend of academics and activities, allows students to be exposed to experiences that enable them to think, create, question and work as required, sometimes alone and at other times in groups and teams. These days, equal stress should be laid on academics, co-curricular activities, and sports. Amateur artists struggle to find a platform for themselves. And there, Xamboree connects all the right dots by doling out a conduit for enthusiasts in a plethora of disciplines ranging from arts, creativity, and business. It’s specifically for students and hence entitles every student with an opportunity to express themselves fearlessly and fight with the other young guns. Stage is what we fear the most and opportunities like these pushes one to take that step out of their comfort zone, face the crowd and unveil their hidden talents.
