The vibrant spirit of youth was celebrated with great enthusiasm during the International Youth Day event, Blaze 2K23, organized by the Mathematics Association of our college. The event was held on August August, 2023 and it commenced with the distribution of badges to students as well as teachers to acknowledge the significant role that youth play in shaping our world’s future.
Arathy Cherian kicked off the event highlighting the concerns and hopes of the younger generation.

As we move forward, let us continue to support and empower the youth, recognizing that they are key drivers of progress and transformation on a global scale.
Talent and Creativity: “Lessor de l’Art” Math Showcase and the Engaging Drama at Joseph College The auditorium at Joseph College radiated with energy on the 22nd of August, as the whole college came together to celebrate the much-anticipated Talent Day. Amid the three-day festivity from the 21st to the 23rd of August, the event’s spotlight shone brightly on math talents, and this year it was aptly named “Lessor de l’Art.” Under the playful moniker of Math Association “Pirates,” the talented minds of the college ingeniously designed a comedy drama titled “Mandodharante Mandatharangal.” This engaging narrative reimagined the story of a wicked king’s darbar. In this whimsical rendition, each student’s unique talent was portrayed as that of a commoner, performed before the king’s discerning gaze. This theatrical ploy was ingeniously devised to secure a coveted job appointment within the palace. The drama was a delightful tapestry of comical encounters and engaging interactions. The talents of the students were seamlessly woven into the storyline, creating a soothing and harmonious blend of entertainment. The performance was not only a testament to the students’ artistic abilities but also their collaborative spirit and creativity. Following the drama, the stage underwent a mesmerizing transformation as a captivating group dance unfolded. The dynamic choreography and synchronized movements further amplified the event’s vibrancy, leaving the audience enthralled. The impact of this drama extended far beyond the stage. Among the student community, it created a ripple of excitement and camaraderie. The collaborative efforts that went into the production fostered a sense of unity and mutual appreciation for one another’s talents. In conclusion, the Talent Day program at Joseph College was a remarkable celebration of the diverse talents and creative ingenuity that define the institution. The “Lessor de l’Art” theme for the math talent segment and the ingenious drama “Mandodharante Mandatharangal” left an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of all who witnessed it. The event was a reminder of the power of creativity to unite, inspire, and bring joy to the college community
