AGANTUK, started its journey in the year 2013 under the leadership of Swarnali Pal and her team of gems who dedicated their time, energy and sacrificed many other happiness for kindling little lights to the 1st generation learners including senior citizens who were left alone by their own sons and daughters .
Agantuk deserves a great salute for relentlessly doing several activities to keep them smilling. Sometimes by engaging them with music, dance ,painting and even by teaching general education.
Diya utsab is one of such activities for igniting fire amongst the 1st generation learner .Around 50 children were taught how to make clay lamp and decorating them with different colours. The children those who attended were so happy and charged with this kind of activities.
In another occasion,80 years old and 79 years old two respected ladies were seen engaged themselves using clay and paints to observe diya utsab with solemnity and pomp.
This is how Agantuk has been developing community in different ways.
On the other hand, IMA’S (International Multispecialty Arts’ School ) also involved its students and teachers to kindle little lights. They also played with clay and colour for observing Diya utsab .
It was a unique experience for the first time for both students and teachers of IMA’S. They all were very much enthused with the kind of activities.
SWARNALI conceptualised both Agantuk and IMA’S for fostering a community of interdisciplinary learners enriched by meaningful experiences with the arts, by integrating innovative technologies as a pedagogical tool, by effectively implementing the liberal education program, by developing interdisciplinary curricula across the School of Fine Arts and across campus and by cultivating an environment that encompasses the full landscape of learning.
