Varanasi, the eternal city, houses a plethora of traditions and has an ecstatic blend of cultures of myriad races. IIT BHU has been nationally acclaimed for imparting technical knowledge in diverse fields for almost a century.
Kashiyatra, the annual socio-cultural festival of IIT BHU Varanasi is a three day fiesta, aimed towards mesmerizing everyone with enchanting literary, musical and artistic events. Its grandeur has earned it the fame of being north India's largest cultural festival, which observes participation from all over India and from other countries as well.
Nothing on Earth can be as dark, as gloomy and as grim as the River Styx which leads into the Underworld. Styx is truly stygian.
The theme of Kashiyatra 2018 - A Stygian Dawn - sends a message of optimism and enthusiasm. No matter how bad and hopeless a situation seems, you can always find a reason to smile. No matter how dark the surroundings appear, you can always find a flicker of guiding light. No matter how gloomy and scary the path looks, there will always be a beautiful dawn promising a brighter road ahead in life.
