SIBM Bengaluru All Set For Utopia, The International Cultural Fest

Bengaluru, July 21, 2016: – Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Bengaluru is all geared up for ‘Utopia’ – The International Cultural Fest 2016 to be held on the 31st of July 2016 (Sunday). This year, the theme (Latin) – ‘Imaginem Plena’, which translates to ‘The Complete Spectrum’ or ‘The Full Image’ is all about the fusion of different cultures which truly makes one a global citizen.

Utopia, organized by International Relations Committee of SIBM Bengaluru, is one of the flagship events of the college. It aims to strengthen cultural relationship between Indian students and international students studying in India.

Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.
― Mahatma Gandhi

Diversity is the one true thing we have in common. UTOPIA is the call for a unified cultural outlook.  It provides an opportunity to stand back and consider that there are certain personal values, beliefs and traditions that shape the things we all do. Learning about various cultures helps us relate to one another and respect people with different perspectives. The event celebrates the spirit of unity and intends to encourage amalgamation of different cultures around us.

Utopia coincides with the birthday of Padma Bhushan Dr. S.B. Majumdar, founder of Symbiosis Society. The concept of Symbiosis and its motto “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” – The World is One Family, has been the pillar of Dr. Majumdar’s idea of a ‘Home away from Home’ for International students around the world.  Utopia 2016 celebrates his great vision and calls for ‘Imaginem Plena‘.
