yoga day

Yoga essentially refers to exploring one’s highest self through the unison of mind and body. The 3000-year-old tradition of yoga is hailed worldwide as a panacea to all human ailments. Yoga promotes holistic well-being through a combination of mindful and muscular practices. As the society is caught in an endless chase for worldly happiness, the philosophy of yoga gains immense importance to regulate and moderate human lives. It reveals the magic of remaining happy and tranquil in being oneself. The ultimate goal of yoga is to reach a sustained state of pure awareness.

Facing an interview is a nightmare for many. There may be multiple factors lowering your level of confidence. Your depth of knowledge, ability to communicate, body language, dressing style, and an endless list of reasons could affect you in being yourself during an interview. While most of us are highly qualified academically, many are still groping in the dark to present ourselves as professionally qualified. And the sad fact is that, it is your professional persona that wins you a better chance of clearing the interview than your academic qualifications.

The Directorate of Alumni Affairs has scheduled a webinar on ‘How to succeed in an Interview’ with our notable alumni, Aayusi Biswas and Tuhin Sarkar from the Class of 2021, Computer Science and Engineering. Aayusi currently holds the position of Associate QA Software Engineer at Sabre Travel Technologies while Tuhin works as a Principal Analyst at AB InBev.

TTD Event

Tallapaka Annamacharya, popularly known as ‘Anamayya’, was a 15th-century saint and the earliest known Indian musician to compose songs called sankeertanas in praise of Lord Venkateswara. His compositions have strongly influenced the structure of Carnatic Music and are still making rounds in various music concerts and performances the world over.

Having composed countless odes to Sri Tirumala Venkateswara Swamy, Annamacharya is widely regarded as the Pada Kavitaa Pitamaha of Telugu poetry. He was a reputed singer and an eminent poet who gave life to the Telugu song and lyricism by blending the Telugu ‘Andhra Vedam’ for the easy understanding of the common man, with the summary of ‘Sanskrit Vedas’.

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, also known as TTD, are on an endeavour to preserve the rich heritage of his compositions. They have set music to over 800 compositions of Annamacharya that have amassed wide popularity among the devotees. We are delighted to announce that the following TTD musicians will be offering a beautiful rendition of Annamacharya’s compositions at our university campus:

Mr M B Loganatha Reddy (Singer)

Mr Srinivasulu (Keyboard)

Mr Bujji (Tabla)

Mr Ramachandraiyya (Shruthi)

Lend your ears to their soothing and heart-warming performance.
