Symbhav Twenty Fourteen

Where will you be, February 2014?

2009 marked the beginning of a cultural tradition that has come to embody the spirit of not merely Symbiosis Law School, Pune but also the student culture of this country as a whole. ‘Symbhav’, SLS Pune’s Annual Cultural Festival opened its metaphorical doors for business for the first time in 2009 with, as the late Randy Savage (R.I.P) might say, much pomp and circumstance. The fest was pulled off with aplomb becoming an instant runaway success; a fitting reward for the tremendous commitment and dedication, not to mention the endless and tireless work collectively put in by the students of SLS, Pune in channelling Doctor Victor Frankenstein and bringing to life the juggernaut that is ‘Symbhav’ (allegedly even complete with wicked grins, wringing hands and calls of ‘Its Alive. IT’S ALIVE!’)

Post the triumph that was the 2009 edition, Symbhav has only gone from strength to strength, expanding exponentially like the waist line of the pregnant or a junk foodie with the 2010 edition going grander in both scale and ambition and the 2011 edition building on the two previous editions while, cementing the ‘Symbhav’ brand forever in hearts, minds and history of student culture in Pune.

‘Symbhav’ 2012 saw a major step up, not merely in terms of further widening its reach beyond Pune by involving a number of colleges from the different corners of the state and even the country but also as an instrument of change. Identifying and harnessing the large role, vast reach and influence that it has come to have on the student population and youth culture of Pune, the 2013 edition celebrated India as a country and everything that contributes to our identities as Indians with the hope of kindling the fires of the previous generations’ patriotic fervour in the current youth population by highlighting the endearing and quirky aspects of being Indian just as much as the momentous and historical.

Symbhav has become one of the most innovative and captivating vehicles of youth expression over the years and in 2014 it promises to go from scaling towering mountains to touching the sky. What can you reasonably expect from Symbhav 2014, (besides the unexpected; there will always be a place for clichés)? Creatively, the envelope will be pushed even further; in terms of reach the stage will grow even wider; in terms of the talent crop, the showcase of will be even more awe-inspiring and in terms of scale, spectacle will never have been grander which is why we rephrase and ask again,

Where will you be, February 2014 when “Symbhav ‘14” finally arrives?
