Arthanomics: An Economics Festival

Arthanomics, the annual Economics festival of Jai Hind College was initiated in 2014 by The Economics Association. It's a festival that gives young, budding economists a chance to experience the multifarious simulations and events relating to economics in the real world. Since its inception, it has always been a platform for college students to display their passion for economics.

Arthanomics 2016:

Last year, the two-day festival witnessed 300 participants from over 20 colleges and above all, the opening ceremony with Mr. Ram Jethmalani- a catalyst for his contribution to Indian law- as chief guest and speaker. His talk covered economics, corruption, black money, and politics which set about the perfect commencement for the festival.

We hosted 30 colleges out of which 12 colleges were from cities across the country and had participation from Kolkata, New Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Jaipur, Ahmedabad as well as various prestigious colleges of Mumbai which allowed students to learn beyond the realm of textbooks as they participated in the wide variety of events specially created by Team Arthanomics.

Conventional events:

  • Paper Presentation
  • House on Fire (Debate)
  • Mock Stock Exchange
  • Quiz
  • Under the Table (Conference)

Special Events added in 2016:

Kani - the intercollegiate arts festival of the English Association.

Kani: A Cultural Gathering is the intercollegiate arts festival of the English Association, founded and manifested for the first time on September 11th and 12th, 2015.
Kani emerged from a collective, deep desire to create a college festival that truly allowed every person to explore his or her creativity in a non-judgmental space. The festival’s spirit was the elimination of competition and it was designed with two days of deep and spontaneous exploration of theatre, music, fine art, film and literature.
For its inaugural year, Kani hosted a large number of people. The festival partnered with some of Mumbai’s best cultural groups and distinguished personalities, and floored viewers who got the chance to interact with, amongst others -

- Thespo, the internationally renowned youth theatre organization
- Anand Gandhi, Director of the acclaimed film Ship of Theseus
- Deepak Ramola, Spoken word poet, and Bollywood’s youngest lyricist
- Jashn – e – Qualam, the Hindustani Dramatic readings group
- Tejas Menon, acclaimed singer-songwriter
- Arnesh Ghosh, founder of the youth theatre company Mirror Merchants
- Jehan Manekshaw, Founder-Director of The Drama School, Mumbai

The events were bold, creative and unconventional - designed to help students experience intuitive art and expression. Some of them were:

  • Badman - a political satire, public speaking event where participants had to use the power of rhetoric to convince ‘voters’ of the validity of a negative philosophy
  • Moods of Movement – a meditative experience in which we explored movement and the human body
  • Art Factory – this event made participants experience collective creation in an industrial setting, through rotational painting under supervision.
  • Spontaneous Creation – this presented participants with a blend of audio, video and light in order to stimulate expression, resulting in a huge assortment of abstract art and impromptu performances.
  • Plays Presented by Thespo – Kani organized a week-long workshop in collaboration with Thespo, to mold and challenge the skills of young actors.It concluded with the performances of these budding actors on the Kani stage.
  • Intellectual Cosplay – in this event, the participants came dressed in body and mind with the clothing and personality of their favorite artists, for an afternoon of conversation, self-exploration and merriment.

These were interspersed with a talk by Anand Gandhi; an Open Mic for spoken word poetry, music and comedy, hosted by Deepak Ramola; and a musical evening with artists like Tejas Mennon, True School of Music, and Dean D’souza.
The festival also included a Spoken Word Poetry Workshop with the Airplane Poetry Movement, a Meta Scavenger Hunt, an all-day Book Nook to sit and read in and a Meditation Corner.
The aesthetics of the events were crucial to the space.The beautiful indie atmosphere, set up with fairylights and sari-wall-hangings,was extremely well received, allowing people to enter a completely different space.
Students from colleges across Mumbai attended the festival, on an individual basis, to reinforce the spirit of non-competitiveness. Students from Whistling Woods, Wilson College, K.C. College,St. Xavier’s College, Sophia College, Mithibai College, and more attended the festival.
Kani was born in April of 2015, and its incredibly dedicated and creative team of core members and department heads worked tirelessly to realize a vision. The team of Kani 2015:

Chairperson – Manvi Ranghar
Events Head – Abhishek Lamba
Aesthetics Head – Nidhi Shetty
Sponsorship Head – Kalash Pandiya
Administration Head – Aarushi  Agrawal
Speakers Head – Nidhi Shetty
PR Heads – Vatsala Sharma and Huzan Bhumgara
Core Team Members – Zohra Malik, Payal Mohta, Sanaya Nanavati, Zahra Baldiwala, Aayush Asthana, Priyanka Banerjee, Aliza Matani, Saanchi Nadkarni.

Additionally, the students were supported by the Faculty Members of the English Department. Prof. June Dias, Prof. Divya Bhatnagar supported the student team. Prof. Deepna Rao and Prof. Anamika Purohit provided their advice, guidance and faith during this huge undertaking.
Kani was an idea of a space, where expectation and competition would not dilute the expression and experience of art. It manifested in the form of a college festival put together by the efforts of a student body committed to its idea, and was made hugely successful by the large number of attendees and an overwhelmingly positive response. In the years to come, Kani aims to expand this ideology and impact for everyone involved, and to leave behind an even greater experience.
