Quasar Quasar! Well, if you’re wondering what it is, firstly it is considered to be among the most luminous objects in the universe and secondly it is the name given to the annual college fest of maeer’s mit Institute of Design, Pune. Well, here we are talking about the latter one. Quasar, the annual event is organised by a combined effort of students specialised in areas like logistics, events, workshops, hospitality, security, graphics, cultural events and the exhibition department putting their heads together to make this happen — every single year, since 2007. Well, in the name of Quasar, we do a lot of fun stuff through which we learn a lot of things. We work eight months a year planning, thinking, re-thinking and re-planning, and modifying the event so that we get it perfect in all aspects as it’s finally presented.

Quasar has grown tremendously over the years. What started off as an intra-college fest with game stalls and home-made food, grew with support from the design industry and then the industrial brands, over the years. In 2011, as Quasar goes through a milestone celebrating its fifth occurence, the story has come a long way. As we wanted the best of the design industry to be present here, we invited professionals from all over the world to conduct seminars and workshops at the event. Hence, establishing a platform where students from all the design institutes in India would come together to share and exhibit their strengths in their area of excellence. We had immense support from Kyoorius throughout and without which, this wouldn’t have been possible. As pro-active learners as we are, we had the biggest delegation of students and faculties at the Designyatra 2010. Interestingly, the students present there, had a talk with Mr. Rajesh Kejriwal of Kyoorius and fixed up an appointment to meet in Mumbai a few weeks later. Visits to Mumbai, disscusions over phone, skype talks followed. It has truly been a brilliant learning experience by having Mr. Kejriwal as our mentor.
