The very opportunity to participate at the university level provides each one of the students, a multitude of exposure and experience. The Kala Bhageerathi students perform in multiple art forms and work as a team. The entire experience is enriching and plays a unique role in BNMIT’s efforts to go beyond academics. A very heartening note about Kala Bhageerathi is that most participants are distinction holders proving that extracurricular activities do not come in the way of good academic performance.

Events conducted under Kalabhageerathi every year.
