Thinking Not To Be Great But The Best In Ourselves

American singer-songwriter Robert Dylan was born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24, 1941. Frequently recognised as one of music history's finest songwriters. Over the course of a career spanning more than 60 years, Dylan has had a significant role in popular culture.  




His most well-known songs, such as "The Times They Are a-Changin'" (1964) and "Blowin' in the Wind" (1963), became anthems for the civil rights and antiwar movements at this time. Since 1994, Dylan has displayed his work in prestigious art galleries and published eight books of drawings and paintings. The Presidential Medal of Freedom, 10 Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award are just a few of the honours he has won.

The Shakespeare of his generation, Dylan sold tens of millions of CDs, composed more than 500 songs that were sung by more than 2,000 artists, toured the globe, and established the standard for lyric writing.

Bob Dylan is not only a singer and songwriter, but also one of the leading figures in the American folk and pop music movements. He is an institution in and of himself. Although he is a diverse performer, it is thought that his songwriting has made the most impact on the music industry. His songs centre on social, political, or philosophical problems that the average person faces. The guitarist also enjoys painting, and his creations have been shown in prestigious art galleries.

Music Education In India

Music brings out the best in you. Music is a part of everyday life for most of us, ranging from passive listening to active music-making. While a select few pursue music professionally to build highly rewarding careers, the majority simply continues to enjoy the social, cognitive, and therapeutic benefits of music.

Dean, True School Of Music, Vijaybhoomi University


Studies have shown that individuals with consistent involvement in instrumental music demonstrate significantly higher levels of mathematics proficiency (U.S. DoE NELLS88 DB). Music education has also contributed to improved average SAT scores (Arts Education Partnership, 2011). This is further supported by studies that show improved attendance and graduation rates of 93.9% and 90.2% respectively in US schools with music programs, as compared to an average of 84.9% and 72.9% in those without music programs. Further, music plays an important role in social bonding, particularly when learners engage in group activities such as playing in a band. Sustained collaborative music learning makes learners happy and relaxed and improves their communication skills and confidence in a variety of social situations. It also leads to increased positive emotional experience while coping with social and professional pressure and fosters important traits such as tolerance and acceptance of peers from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Students from all walks of life should have the opportunity to learn music and engage in some form of meaningful music-making to help nurture their creative and prosocial skills.

As a part of the festive celebrations, later on in the day, a celebratory programme took place involving dances and musical performances. As a way to end the day on a great note, a Treasure hunt took place with a matki full of gifts on the line.

SwaRang’s Defenceless Play

Dramas are an integral part of the collective human culture. The first drama can be traced back to 534 BC. Although this form of entertainment has declined in popularity since the inception of radios, TVs and the most recent, Internet, the medium of theatre still persists to this day.

VijayBhoomi University boasts its own Drama club, SwaRang. The name draws its inspiration from the concept of swaraj or self-rule. The name means owning up to one’s colours or accepting one’s peculiarities.

SwaRang performed Niel Simon’s “The Defenceless Creature”, a part of the Good Doctor play. It is a slapstick comedy play that tells the story of a woman with a sick husband going to a bank in order to claim her husband’s lost wages after wrongful termination, but the bank has nothing to do with her or her husband and his wrongful termination!

The play attracted audiences both physically and in the online mode. The audience was thoroughly entertained by the actors and after its end, the play received a standing ovation.



  Student Quotes    


“As a part of the play, the most rewarding moment was when the applause started.
