Celebrating different festivals is among regular annual feature on our campus and a very well attended and colorful affair.

Mata Ki Chowki a devotional program, was celebrated at Eco Campus on occasion of Navratri festival, 2012; All staff turned up with their families to make it a starry affair.
Navratri is celebrated twice a year - in March-April (as Chaitra Navratri) and in October-November. While the ninth day of Chaitra Navratri is celebrated as Ram Navami, the festival celebrated in September-October commemorates the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura. Though a number of legends are associated with the conception of Navratri, the deity Goddess Shakti and her various forms are worshipped in both the cases. In Gujarat, the festival is celebrated to worship Goddess Jagdamba, while in West Bengal it takes the shape of Durga Puja. Coming down to the southern parts of the country, the Navratri in October-November is dedicated to the three avatars of Goddess Shakti - the first three days to Goddess Durga (the Warrior Goddess), the next three days to Goddess Lakshmi (the Goddess of Wealth) and the last three days to Goddess Saraswati (the Goddess of Knowledge).
