To the students of this institute, Technikala is not just about the events but a platform to create awareness about several causes which impact peoples’ lives and surroundings. This year, the emphasis is on the need for safe road travel and encouraging a healthy form of transportation.

To honour this cause, NICMAR Pune in association with safe road foundation organised Cyclothon 2018 on February 3. It saw close to 200 riders along with, professional cyclists from outside on a circuit of 7.2 km in and around Balewadi and Baner with the mission of promoting fuel conservation and embedding socio-environment consciousness.

Apart from its environmental and sociological benefits, the joy the students displayed while cycling brought upon such warmth to the hearts of the onlookers. The event was graced by DCP Ashok Morale along with Swapnali Saikar, Baner corporator and Chaitanya Velpal, founder of Multifit Gym.

Apart from the Cyclothon, as a prelude to Technikala 2018, a flash mob was organised on February 4 at Westend mall in Aundh, which came as a pleasant surprise to all the mall goers that evening. The students put out a splendid dance and music performance. The same zest will persist in the upcoming extravaganza that ‘Technikala 2018’ will be.

What is a college fest without mind-blowing music that gets the crowd on their feet? NICMAR Pune has a legacy of bringing in the most popular artists from the entertainment industry like Euphoria and Nakash Aziz in the previous years.

This year, for their pro show night on the third day of the event, the college has tapped in Aditi Singh Sharma, who is a rising star in B-town known for her versatile singing.

The excitement among the students as well as the fans of Aditi Singh Sharma for is quite high.

From facilitating and enhancing networking skills to helping students get better at man-management and speaking skills, this fest provides students a great learning curve. It will appeal to a wide spectrum of students having a plethora of events for anyone and everyone who wants to be a part of an event of this magnitude. Add to that are the prizes worth more than Rs 2,00,000 to be won.
