Handful Of Grains

Handful of Grains is a legacy project of The Rotaract Club of N.M. College has been going on for the past ten years with increasing prevalence yearly. It is an initiative where the team donates grains and other supplies to the underprivileged. This year on the 9th of December 2022, the team visited villages in Palghar district and donated 150+ kits. Each kit consisted of Rice 2kg, Aata – 5kg, Daal – 1kg, Sugar – 1kg, Salt – 1kg, Onion – 2kg, Potato – 5kg, Tea – 1 packet, Haldi – 1 packet and Soap – 1 bar which was handed over to 150+ families. Along with that, the team also assisted 140+ school-going children from all the villages with stationery kits, each consisting – ​of 1 pen, 2 pencils, 1 eraser, 1 sharper, 1 scale 15cm and 1 long book. The intention was to motivate them to continue their education. Finally, the team marked the end of their legacy project, wherein the team distributed a total of more than 3000 kg of donations and raised more than Rs. 1,00,000 thus making its mark in the history of Handful of Grains.

Astroworld was a field trip to Nehru Planetarium organised by the Community Service Avenue for the kids of Salaam Balak Trust, Kandivali. Through this project, we aimed to give the children the experience of a world greater than a world that has very little light. We aimed to show them a sky filled with opportunities and also tell them that dreams can be achieved if you have the courage to work for them. On 27th September 2022, the team along with volunteers from the NGO took the students to Nehru Planetarium where they learnt more about space and other external bodies through 3D models and audiovisuals. The sky show they saw explained the Biography of the Universe and how it came into existence, it was really insightful for the kids to gain knowledge about our planet and the galaxy. This project was one of a kind and due to its innovative aspect we garnered widespread appreciation for it.

The Stagecraft

The Stagecraft was a Silent Play Writing Competition. The aim and innovation for this event were to add value to the work that Editorials can do. It was divided into two phases. Phase 1 was a Silent Play Script Writing Competition where the best scripts would get to perform their Silent Plays at a Deaf Organization in phase 2. Therefore, this was actually putting the things in action and witnessing in real life the impact literary arts can make. The silent play scripts that were chosen were for the play of ‘Cinderella’ and ‘The Gift of the Magi’ The Editorials team helped in the performance of the plays with the participants. The showcase of the plays took place at The Bombay Institute for Deaf and Mute and saw an audience of 120+ students.

Beyond Borders

In Beyond Borders, the International Service Avenue collaborated with a club in Lahore, Pakistan in which our main focus was to have a cultural exchange and learn more about the other country whilst at the same time helping them learn more about ours. By collaborating outside the boundaries of our country we aimed at building a cordial relationship with the club that we collaborated with, especially because of the evident animosity created between the two countries by our ancestors after the divide. We celebrated the Independence Days of both the countries on 14th and 15th of August, 2022. We believed a cultural exchange would begin when we know about the other country so we decided to research and make a quiz about each other’s country. Then we conducted the quiz that we made for them enthusiastically by reading out the questions and asking them to raise their hands to answer. On the second day, we presented our country’s Culture, Traditions, Climate, Monuments, Food, Clothing, Festivals and a lot more. Through this event we got a first-hand experience with cultural misconceptions about each other and the audience had the opportunity to see Pakistan from a different perspective, realizing that we’re much more alike than we had thought before.

Entrescape was an entrepreneurial escape room curated in order to engage the participants with entrepreneurship in the most interesting and competitive way possible. It was a simulation of an escape room, where the clues provided to the participants were based on different entrepreneurship-based ideas and subjects. It was a three-round event covering different practical aspects of entrepreneurship. The project successfully helped the participants in learning and developing a mindset veering towards entrepreneurship.

The Intern Experience

Intern’s Experience laid emphasis on the need and importance of Internships on a student’s career and his/her professional growth and development. We organized a roundtable conference with a few alumni of N.M. College who have also played an important role in RCNM who had pursued internships and had fair knowledge and experience of the same. Through conversations with the panellists, the students got great insights into their professional lives which directly influenced and inspired them. The active discussions helped the students uncover their hidden interests and helped open doors to various different career opportunities.

Badminton Unleashed

Badminton Unleashed was a two-day badminton tournament that included regular as well as Paralympic players. Our aim for this event was to provide players with an opportunity to test their skills against each other. It was aimed to support the growth of badminton and all formats of the game based on the number and gender of the players- men’s singles, women’s singles, and mixed doubles. Our aim was to understand the hardships faced by the Para-Badminton athletes and to provide proper assistance and playing conditions for Para-Badminton athletes. Through this event, we introduced the first-ever Para-Badminton tournament which included WH (wheelchair), SL (Standing) and SU (Short Stature) categories. The tournament took place on the 14th and 15th of August, 2022 with over 90+ participants joining in from varied backgrounds. On the first day, the Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles and Para-Badminton matches took place. The finals took place on the second day, and the event was a huge success.

NOVA is the Digital Communications Avenue’s legacy project that continued for three days this year. The core theme this year was TECH and all the events augmented new applications of technology. One of the major innovative aspects this year was the OFFLINE robot exhibition. It was the highlight of the event as everyone got to witness live robots which had different features and functions individually. Also for one of our events, the floor was transformed into a life-size board game which helped make the game proactive and interesting. We came up with software to make a website where participants had the experience to build a website from scratch without using code, all they had to apply was creative and analytical thinking. This event served as a great opportunity for students who are interested in technology and Robotics. Coming from a commerce background, this event garnered widespread appreciation and saw a footfall of 100+ tech enthusiasts.

Eco Quest

Eco Quest is our attempt at making the environment healthier and working towards its protection. Under this, ABCD – A Beach Clean-up Drive, our legacy project takes place a day after Ganesh Visarjan every year as the festival leaves the beaches in a very degraded state. This year, we expanded our drive to two beaches Juhu Beach and Versova Beach and even collaborated with the Robin Hood Army Urvari, Mumbai Ploggers – Rashmi Singh, Ikhtiyaar, The Leo Club of Mumbai and The Western Clean Shores Community. Through this event, we spread awareness regarding safeguarding the ocean and how we must all work together to ensure its cleanliness. This initiative saw a whopping participation of more than 300+ concerned individuals who aimed at making an impact with their small actions.
