AAKANKSHA – Fun and Frolic at Terna Medical College


With MBBS being declared as one of the toughest professional courses, when one thinks of a medical student, all that comes to mind is books, books and books. However, a sense of excitement overtakes every other emotion Terna Medical College when students are all geared up for the organisation of Aakanksha. In its 12th year, Aakanksha, comprises of Lakshya, the sports event; and Paranoia, the cultural event.

Inaugrated on by Dr A D Deepak, teacher in-charge and Dr Pradeep Pawar, cultural in-charge, Lakshya went on for two days as students put on their sporting hats to test their talent at cricket, night football, throwball, volleyball and so on. An equal enthusiasm was shown for the indoor sports which included badminton, chess, carrom, table tennis etc.
This year’s theme for Paranoia was ‘Carnival’. The lighting and colourful decor transformed the boring white washed college building into a bright carnival scene. The three-day cultural fiesta was kick started with an intra-college quiz, followed by a seminar by Dr Nilesh Shah, HOD Psychiatry – Sion Hospital on life, aatma, and reincarnation. The evening saw various performances by Ternaites as well as participants from other colleges. The events continued for two days with indoor events like T-shirt painting and mehendi, followed by the Teachers Fiesta. The teaching and non teaching staff participated. The evening ended with the band event, where members of celebrity band Rang served as guest judges, who also enthralled the audience with their music. On the last day, indoor events including face painting and sketching led to the grand finale. Song and dance sequences, fashion shows and skits, all made for a fun-filled masala night, with chief guests, Dr Omprakash Tavri and actor/ model Ameet Gaur (Force).
