Each one of us is gifted and each one of us has a different set of hidden talents. “Yavnika” -Hobby club is an excellent avenue to unwrap these natural gifts & discover our potentials, polish them, embellish them and be a proud beholder of many skills. It’s not about how smart you are, it’s all about how you are smart. Hobby Club draws its inspiration from the Multiple Intelligence faction of the ‘The Eclectic Approach’.
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.
- Initiate activities such as Music, Dance, and Dramatics, Photography, Painting etc.
- Conducting training programs for Dance, Drama and Music
- Arranging exhibitions for displaying creativity in Painting, Photography etc.
- Conducting competitions at intra and inter-collegiate levels.
- Inviting experts to guide students in pursuing hobbies.
- Promoting students for other state and national level competitions to represent Acropolis.
- Conducting workshops or training sessions.
- Arranging outdoor tours.
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.

III SPIC MACAY Concert
Flute Recital: Shri Rupak Kulkarni (Mumbai)
SPIC MACAY affirms a multifaceted cultural and artistic heritage. SPIC MACAY seeks to promote an awareness of rich and heterogeneous cultural tapestry amongst youth everywhere through active participation in Indian classical music and arts, and discovery of their deeper and subtler values.
The movement incorporates the vitality of young people to cajole them into being custodians of this heritage. It seeks to provoke thought and a genuine spirit of enquiry in the young. It emphasizes aesthetics and sensitivity in an increasingly mundane and unquestioning world. Thus its work is educational in spirit and character and locates itself in educational institutions only.
One such attempt was showcased at Acropolis, on 16th Oct’15 by Shri Rupak Kulkarni.
As a child prodigy with music blown into his breath by his father late Pt. Malhar Rao Kulkarni, Shri Rupak Kulkarni, has blossomed under the finest tutelage of flute legend Padma Vibhushan Pt. HARIPRASAD CHAURASIA to become an outstanding exponent of MAIHAR GHARANA. As a first GANDA BANDH Shagird of Pt. Chaurasia since the tender age of 9, Shri Rupak with arduous training and hard work has mastered Dhrupad, Khayal and Tantrakari
Shri Rupak Kulkarni, has given “Maihar Gharana” tradition with his unique sensuality and creativity. He has recreated ragas, has written compositions through the flute and his flute reminds us, of the sensuality, of the Krishna on flute, mesmerizing his Gopis.
At the performance he was at his best along with Mr. Sapan Anjaria at Tabla and his disciple Mr. Sutar on flute. His recital had a rare combination of Dhrupad and Khayal Gayaki, melodious Aalap and scintillating Tatkar (Tonguing technique used for Jhala) innovative improvisation with mesmerizing Layakari, superb breath control and dexterous finger work.
No wonder his concert took the breath of not only music lovers but even by connoisseurs and music maestros. He was lauded by all present in the auditorium.I would conclude saying Shri Kulkarni is simply an age-old master of music disguised as a much younger artiste.
The program was conducted under the Yavnika hobby club. Ms. Sumitra Joshi hosted the program. Dr. Kamal Bharani welcomed the guest. Prof. Gaurav Chaitanya, the co-ordinator of chapter proposed the vote of thanks.
