Dream college club of creative excellenceLong long back, when I joined college, then at that time, there was no club/society as it is now in most of the colleges. Though my college was one of the top colleges in the city and organized many activities, still club culture was missing. At present, when I learn about the various clubs of different colleges, then I realize what an exciting and creative option the students of my time missed to showcase their talent.
I was wondering one day that suppose the club culture had been present during my time then I would have joined the one that encouraged to highlight a creative talent. A club named Creative Excellence Club (CEC) would have been my choicest club. CEC must have had some sub-groups like creative writing, dress designing, jewellery designing, and card making, within its ambit. All the sub-groups have one thing in common that is creating something new from scratch. I kept on thinking about how to manage all the sub-groups of the CEC. Gradually, I could frame out how to make the club thriving.
Well, I had many batchmates who were creatively talented, and I remember we used to discuss writing poems and prose pieces. I would have requested Rashmi Sinha to look after the creative writing sub-group. She had an extreme knack of writing impressive write-ups in both the languages, English and Hindi. Another batchmate Sujata Mathur was a budding dress designer. She used to design her dresses from a very early age, so she would have made the best person to manage the dress designing sub-group. There was Ruby Sinha, who was very good at art. On any topic, she always came up with unique posters, and making attractive cards on any occasion was her hobby and passion both. A student, Seema Gandhi, was there who always wore matching costume jewellery and used to make the ornaments herself. She even had a group of friends who were passionate about making costume jewellery.
I thought about the leads of the sub-groups but wanted another girl student who could have been a suitable person to manage the entire CEC. Oh! Yes, how did I forget Mitali Kaur, who was an all-round package? She would have been the right choice. Later, I decided to talk to all the selected batchmates, and they readily agreed. We met our Sister Principal to discuss the proposal, and after listening to us in details, she gave her nod to go ahead. Sister suggested us to involve two or three professors and suggested their names. We met the teachers accordingly, and without any hesitation, all the three professors agreed and decided to work in co-ordination with the students.
CEC became successful within a month. Our proposal to go to neighbourhood slums and make the slum-dwellers learn creative work to earn from it became superhit. It was a work for a social cause from our end, which made our college proud of us. Like this, we had many active proposals to support ourselves as well as a society too. Although in reality, I didn't have any club in my college days, the ideas that clicked my mind now made me feel ecstatic. It seems like a dream come true.
