  • Vista 2012 – The full picture :)

    Once upon a time, long ago there was a faraway land called ‘Somewhere’, ruled by an efficient king. Because the king wanted to make the life of his subjects easy, he formed a committee of his ministers to frame a set of conventions that would illustrate the means of carrying out all tasks. This document, aptly named ‘the rulebook’ was widely circulated and enforced until all the subjects started following it religiously.

  • The King of Festivals – Onam

    Joseph John (PGP 2012-14) relives his memories of Onam while on campus…     We all have some childhood memories that we cherish. There are rare moments from your school days which you fondly recall, some which cannot be relived.
