State’s largest digital Onam celebration for Engineering Students begins today

Thiruvananthapuram: The Group of Technology Companies (GTech), the industry body of IT companies in Kerala, will bring together youth from across the State, on a digital platform, to celebrate Onam. The three-day event Mu Onam will begin today (Wednesday). As many as 5000 students from over 154 engineering colleges across the state will participate in Mu Onam, the largest digital Onam celebration in which all events will be held online.

Mu Onam feature Mamangam, a Onam Festival organizing competition where colleges group under three regions - Travancore, Kochi and Malabar, Kazhchappadu - The unseen frames, a Digital Art competition, with the theme "Onam 2021 - The smiles and struggles'', Thaalam - Malayali Aano?, an Instagram reels competition with the theme "How the pandemic has brought a change in your Onam'' etc. Apart from the Zone which wins the championship, individual winners, colleges and districts which top the competition will win cash prizes.

"Mu Onam is a fusion of art, culture and learning. Aswamedham, a competition that challenges participants with puzzles that involve coding and hacking skills, and general awareness, is an example. That the two most vibrant youth communities in the state, Kites foundation and TinkerHub, are driving this adds to the fun and knowledge sharing," ", said Deepu S Nath, Convenor of the Academia and Technology Focus Group of GTech, and the chief organiser of the event.

"COVID 19 has shown that we can be adaptable, agile and responsive. It is now time for revival, and youth will lead the change. It is only the normal course of action that the digitally empowered state look for alternative ways for celebrations, without losing the charm and emotions that come with our national festival", he said.

Mu Onam will be a different experience for the thousands of students who have not yet had the opportunity to see each other or social interaction as colleges remain closed due to the pandamic, says Angel Rose, a second-year student of Palakkad Govt Engineering College.
