Thandava, the Intra-departmental Arts Fest is one of its kind at MBC. The college has always
supported the co-curricular activities with the same importance as given to academic programs. Conducted
under the leadership of the Student’s Union, the event is guided and supported by the faculties of the college.
Third Year Engineering degree students are the overall in charges of the program. The competitions not only bring
out the talents in the students, but ultimately aims at the overall growth of the students.
The name of the event is taken from the word ‘Tandavam’ (also known as Tandava nrtya) which depicts the divine dance performed by God Shiva. Shiva’s Tandava is described as a vigorous dance that is the source of the cycle of creation, preservation and dissolution. While the Rudra Tandava depicts his violent nature, first as the creator and later as the destroyer of the universe, even of death itself; the Ananda Tandava depicts him as enjoying.
