Manipal: The crowd of over 2,000 burst into laughter when Papa CJ, the great Indian comedy artist gave them the lasting experience of comedy on January 20 on the concluding day of Atharva; the Annual B-School fest of T. A. Pai Management Institute (TAPMI) at KMC Greens.
The event started with a brief performance by a sand artist from Kolkata named Kaushik Bose followed by the Comedy Night. “Papa CJ is one of the most hilarious comedians I have ever met. Throughout the show there was not even a single moment when I felt his jokes are non sense. The best part about him was, through his jokes and mockery, he managed to convey the message to the audience present that no matter what happens they should be proud of being an Indian,” said Muktika Poddar, second year, Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT).
“He is a complete entertainment package. I really enjoyed his show. I don’t think I have ever laughed like this in ages. The best thing about him is he is very explicit in his style of performing and doesn’t hesitate an inch about whoever he is talking to, which is really commendable,” said Abhiraj Raghu Vanshi, second year student from Kasturba Medical College (KMC).
The morning session of the third day commenced with an event named Polemic (corporate debate), which included the Panel discussion on the topic “Unleashing the creative genius- Who should lead the march in India?” The panel discussed the importance of creative minds in different fields of society and how often we as the mankind of same race differ from the people with different perspectives.
There were five eminent speakers for the session, who had participated from different lines of work. The panel represented of Dr. M. S. Sriram, Visiting faculty at IIM-Bangalore; Ravi Subramanian, author of the famous book “I Bought the Monk’s Ferrari”; Naveen Lakkur, Co-founder of Compassities Software Solutions; Dr. Anbu Rathinavel, Sr. Vice President, Polaris Financial Technology Ltd. and Dr. R.C Natrajan, Director, TAPMI.
“This year Polemic was different from last year. This time we decided to keep variety of speakers who come from different fields of life, like an educationist, an entrepreneur and an author rather than of same stream and it turned out to be better than the last time,” said Vivek Pushkar, Corporate Interface group team of Atharva, second year student of TAPMI.
Immediately after the discussion, the day was followed by the valedictory function in Fortune Inn Valley View. The Chief Guest for the function was Mohan Narayanan, President of Kubos Consultancy, Chennai.
