Your extra-curricular abilities will come to the fore during IIT Guwahati’s signature inter-hostel cultural competition, as ten bastions of pride prepare to battle it out for the Manthan trophy. Manthan brings out of you abilities you may never have realized you have as you and your mates show everyone else why your hostel trounces all others.Held during the month of October, Manthan also gives you an excellent chance to bond with the seniors from your hostel, and find new friends in your batch. Winning something of this scale is not something a small group of people can ever accomplish, and entire army of dancers, writers, singers, instrumentalists, painters, and prop-makers will be required to oust the competition. Night-outs, team work, time management and delivering a winning performance, that’s just the kind of stuff the spirit of Manthan embodies. Montage covers every single happening of this event every year, whether it be the performances or the decoration or the preparations or crowd. Here are some of the most beautiful shots taken by our club members of various performances by different hostels during Manthan.
