EIILM-Kolkata has many recreational activities for students which not only come as breaths of fresh air but also as additional opportunities for self-development
The veneration of the Vedic Goddess of Wisdom and her worship is common among the students of India in general and Bengal in particular. We observe Saraswati Puja here at EIILM-Kolkata by invoking her blessings. Cultural programmes are also performed by students on this auspicious day and it provides yet another scope to them for showcasing their extracurricular talents. The entire planning is done by the students’ and it is them only who conduct the entire event ending with the immersion of the idol.
The event was held during the Christmas Week of 2020. The students of Hotel and Hospitality Management spent one whole week in the hands-on learning experience. Not only were the students involved in cake-mixing, but they also received direct training from Ms. Kamalini Paul, Managing Director, Paulson Group of Hotels, Kolkata. The other exciting part of this event was that the students sold the cake baked by them and shared the revenue with Hotel De Sovrani, our Hospitality Partner.
