To enter a theatre for a performance is to be inducted into a magical space, to be ushered into the sacred arena of the imagination, while enjoying the awe-inspiring drama that unfolds.
This would be increasingly wonderful when one is bestowed with the support and warmth of one’s peers. Aarambh is an auspicious yearly event that is celebrated by students of Symbiosis, Lavale campus, wherein each institute performs a format of performing arts that includes dancing, cultural plays and singing, on a set theme. Students of the freshman year at Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance (SSBF) gracefully stepped out of their respective comfort zone to amaze the audience with their humble yet breathtaking performances. Specially, but deliberately, the event this year was made progressively more informative with the theme of ‘Yin and Yang’, for which SSBF’s act revolved around the dearth of acceptance of the survival of nature in the minds and hearts of singletons.
The opening of the evening’s performance by SSBF was commenced by a singing performance that allowed the crowd to submerge and feel the eloquence and sweetness of the performing voices. That being done, it was time to behold a magnificently choreographed dance on a carefully chosen song that beautifully brought out the meaning of this year’s theme. It was like witnessing a rhythmical movement of the well-versed dancers who were moving on a pulsating background tune. As if it was not all to suffice the hunger of cheering crowd, the acrobatics elements of the ongoing performance only added to the excitement of already engaging throng. The evening was spectacular to say the least.

This was the theme of Aarambh 2018, which was conducted on 21stof July. The whole event portrayed how everybody should embrace the ‘Misfit’ in them. The show was orchestrated in the jam-packed SIU auditorium. Even before the show started, the energy and excitement in the auditorium was palpable, which was maintained at that level throughout the evening.
The event kicked off with a powerful entry by the hosts onto the dais. After a round of quirky introductions, the chief guest, Dr.Ruchi Jaggi, Director, SIMC addressed the gathering and was felicitated.
The first performance of the evening was staged by the students of Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance. The skit and dance that the team put up carried an important message in accordance with the theme. SSBF, without doubt, gave a great opening to the show.
This was followed by many entertaining and meaningful performances by students from other institutes of the university like SIBM, SIMC, SITM, SSP etc.
The best part of the evening came when the students of all the colleges of SIU came together to give a band performance. They created something truly mesmerizing on stage and the show got its perfect climax.
Aarambh is an SIU cultural event that is organised every year by the various student committees from all the institutes of Lavale campus. Every year, the students of SIU eagerly look forward to this event which provides them with a wonderful opportunity to display their extra-curricular skills.
The theme for Aarambh 2017 was ‘Unity in Diversity.’ This year, we at SSBF, came up with a unique concept - racial discrimination and stereotyping. It is a harsh reality that a multicultural and highly diverse society like ours, is rather hostile to the foreign students staying in India. So, to tackle this sensitive issue, we decided to generate awareness about it through a compelling story of a foreign exchange student staying in India, who has to confront the stereotypes deeply entrenched in the minds of the people.
The skit was supported by captivating and power-packed performances by the students, who took the event to an entirely different level. The skit ended on a tragic note, with the narrator urging the audience to refrain from discriminating people based on caste, colour, creed, religion, gender or race. The story sent a powerful message, ‘Do not judge the lot, based on the actions of a few’, which successfully struck a chord with the audience. Like every year, the SSBF students stole the show and succeeded in winning the hearts of all the students of SIU with their scintillating performance.
starts with the fest Aarambh, for freshers. What better can a start to a whole new academic year be, than to have a platform to showcase your extra-curricular talent! This year the theme for the event was “Be the Difference”. We at SSBF, chose a very usual topic of Drugs, however, to show something extra-ordinary with a lot dance, drama, emotions and music to blow away the minds of the audience. Based on a contemporary dance performance, we portrayed the story of a decent young guy and his normal life blended with drugs. We went on to show how his deadly habits got him close to death and how he comes out of it, only to help other people see the brightness of the world. The dancers swayed away the hearts of the audience with their stunning moves and splendid confidence, and like every year, SSBF left its mark on the Aarambh stage.
