The focus of these club activities is primarily to help the students explore their hidden talents in activities that range from personal cultural hobbies to technical interest.The ‘Hobby Club’ not only helps to bring out the potential of the students but also fosters development in areas such as personality development and inculcating in the students the spirit of learning together. We intend to make students smarter the way they already are. Each individual has a different permutation and combination of the different intelligences he/she possess.
In today’s world, the pressures and demands on students are phenomenal. Pressure of exams, peer pressure, parental pressure and pressure for career results in tension among the students. This stress prevents them from performing skillful actions which in turn deprives them of the results that they deserve to achieve. For reducing stress, the Hobby Club provides an answer. Hobby is focusing attention on a single thought to the exclusion of all other thoughts under the supervision of the intellect.

About SPIC MACAY :-
SPIC MACAY (Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth) is a voluntary non-profit movement founded in the year 1977 by dedicated academicians and students. It seeks to conserve and promote Indian culture and introduce the rich and heterogeneous cultural tapestry to the youth of this country. Through focus on the classical arts, with their attendant legends, rituals, mythology and philosophy, SPICMACAY seeks to facilitate an awareness of their deeper and subtler meaning and values. Classical Indian music and dance carry with them generations of wisdom dating back to antiquity. We hope that the beauty, grace and wisdom embodied in them will become an integral part of a student’s life and inspire them to become a better humanbeing.
Presently SPIC MACAY has more than 300 chapters in India and abroad. In the year 2012-13, over 7000 programs were organized in the country. In order to achieve its goals, SPIC MACAY organizes lecture -demonstrations, workshops and intensives, in various educational institutes, schools, and colleges. We also conduct Baithaks, Virasat, week-long Fests, Conventions and Talks which introduce students to several young and upcoming artistes who perform along with the senior artistes. Held all over India, these programs give students an opportunity to witness insightful performances and workshops in folk and classical arts, literature, crafts, talks, theatre, cinema and yoga and more importantly, informally interact with maestros like Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma (Santoor), Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia(Flute), Pt. Birju Maharaj(Kathak), Smt. Ashwini Bhide Deshpande (Hindustani Vocal), Pt. Vishwamohan Bhatt(Mohan veena), Smt. Teejan Bai(Pandavani), to name a few. We have a Gurukul Scholarship Scheme that provides opportunities to aspiring Shishyas to live for a month with ‘Gurus’ who have dedicated their life to their art forms, be it literature, religion or traditional medicine. The rapport thus created helps the student develop a wholesome understanding of not only the art form but also the artiste as a practitioner of a certain way of life.
