Everyone speaks a different language, has lived in different parts of the country and some even come from different parts of the world
Ever since I took my first step in SCMC, my most favorite aspect of this institute has been the people! Being an extrovert, interacting with people is my favorite thing and Symbiosis Centre for Media & Communication has been a very good place to meet interesting people.
I personally feel that I have learnt a lot from the people here. It is said that a man is known by the company he keeps; and my company is definitely a good one. Each and every person comes from a different background and culture. Everyone speaks a different language, has lived in different parts of the country and some even come from different parts of the world. There are so many things to learn from them. Each person is interesting to talk to, has a different story, different beliefs, celebrates different ideologies and festivals and each person aims for something unique in their lives. Some of them share a common talent with me; some of them are good to talk to for hours and some are so well versed with a myriad of topics that I just feel like listening to them. The cultural events in SCMC have thrown light upon how each person excels in some or the other talent.
A typical working day in SCMC involves students flocking elevators to make it to the lecture on time, groups shooting scenes, having intense discussions with professors outside classes during breaks, practicing for cultural events or simply sitting in a corner with their guitar, singing songs with other people joining in.
I personally believe that “good people bring out the good in people”, and thus, different kinds of people influence me to a great extent! Sociologists say that culture is shared and I strongly experience this in college every day! It’s not the infrastructure or the facilities alone that make the SCMC #1 but the people too that have collectively taken it to the top.
