My Manipal Experience: Looking Through a Kaleidoscope

For me, a memorable journey is one which is full of colorful moments. Something which would allow me to recall and cherish some truly beautiful memories later on in life. And that’s exactly what my Manipal stint has been all about. There’s the amazing academic life of course, but what also stands out is the plethora of extra-curricular activities I can participate in.

In short, life in Manipal is akin to the various colorful pieces within a kaleidoscope. When I’ll look back at it, it’ll be full of beautiful, vibrant memories which will stay with me forever.

It is said that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”; and I’m an ardent believer of this simple saying. I’m not someone who can devote all of my time to just books. A person needs to take part in activities which lie outside the scope of academics, and that is where extra-curricular activities come into the picture!

The extra-curricular activities I have gotten to take part in has truly created a colorful picture of my Manipal life so far! A picture that’ll look different EVERY time I’ll look back at it through the kaleidoscope of my memories. These activities range from music to dance to sports and even literary activities. There are so many options to choose from, it seems unreal! It was like Manipal had set up a canvas for us, and our talents are the colors we can paint it with!

And believe it or not, these amazing experiences play a big role in a person’s holistic development.

Ever since my childhood, I’ve been a literary aficionado. I believe that seeing the world through books is a truly enlightening experience! Manipal gave me the opportunity to be a part of one of the oldest literary bodies in town. Over time, I discovered that I possessed abilities when it came to debating, public speaking, quizzing etc. This was a completely new perspective!

By the way, another aspect of my life which I haven’t touched upon is my love for football! I think it’s the most amazing game in the world! It is definitely one of those things which make me want to get out of bed every morning. And needless to say, Manipal helped me out yet again. I am a part of a semi-professional football league, which actually is one of the first of its kind in the country!

Oh, and did I mention that I’ve also gotten to work on some cool RC drones and automated cars?

All in all, all my experiences here so far have helped me look at things in life through a completely different lens, and this has made my academic experience a lot more colorful and fun!

Long story short, when I’ll look through the kaleidoscope of my Manipal experience, I’ll be nothing short of amazed, every single time!
