Each team covered events of national and international importance. They also delivered news bytes on economy, sports, weather, space, breaking news and invited celebrities in their studios.

  • A study tour of T.Y.B.A. was arranged to Baroda and Ahemdabad from 14th January, to 18th January, 2015. There were 21 students and two faculties. The tour covered the prime cities of Baroda and Ahemdabad known for their historical, cultural, political and economic significance. The students boarded the Vadodara Express on 14th January, 2015 at 11.30 p.m. and reached Vadodara on 15th January, 2015, at 6.30 a.m. On the first day we visited the EMU temple which has an idol of Lord Shiva in Nataraja style imparting cosmic knowledge to the sages. We also visited Pavagarh which is recognized as the only world heritage site in Gujarat. The temple is situated 2600 meters above sea level. The students took a cable car to reach the foot hills. The cable car was an exhilarating experience and offered an aerial view of the entire panorama. The mythological belief narrates the significance of Pavagarh as the sacred place which has the fingers of Mahashakti’s right leg. It is the holy site where sage Vishwamitra did severe penance to please Mahashakti. It is also the origin of river Vishwamitra. In the evening students visited the Sayaji Garden. The night sky dazzled with illuminating kites soaring in the sky offering the glimpse of the famous Kite Festival of Gujarat. The next day on 16th January students visited Ahemedbad’s renowned Akshardham temple built by the Swaminarayan sect. Its magnificence mesmerized the beholder. After that the students proceeded to ‘Adalaj Ki Vav’, a sixteenth century well, intricately carved in stone and its optional landing supported by eight pillars. The Sabarmati Ashram desorbed eloquently the Gandhian philosophy of Sarvodaya, important milestones of freedom movement and the Mahatma’s life. The Law Garden Market turned out to be shopper’s hunting ground amidst frantic bargaining. On 17th January we visited the historic marvel the Laxmi Vilas Palace of the Gaikwads of Baroda. We were stunned by the amazing display of sculptures, paintings, weaponry, Elephant Hall, Gadi Hall, Darbar Hall. Every corner of the place unraveled historical memories of the Maharajas of Baroda. The next stop was at the city Museum of Baroda. The students were fascinated by the rich variety of ivory sculptures, paintings, weapons and other antiquities of the museum. A special section on natural history was fascinating. The museum also has a huge bone structure of a Blue Whale.
  • Our students got an exposure to the grandeur of Gujarat, its culture and rich heritage as well as lip smacking cuisine. The tour was a huge success with the students’ exuberance not dropping down even for a minute.
