Ojus is a 8-day intra-college sports and inter-collegiate cultural fest of A.P Shah Institute of Technology,Thane which comprises of various Cultural as well as Sports activities. "Ojus" is a Sanskrit Word which means pure energy , a positive ray of hope. And Surely Ojus gives Justice to its name by being the wind beneath wings and relieving students of their pressure during their semester exams. So we look forward to you joining us on this amazing time of the year to enjoy and make new memories!
It's with gratitude and immense pleasure that I am writing for Ojus 2019. At APSIT we strive to challenge each student to improve his/her academic ability to become the best versions of themselves. And we impart to the students not only the technical knowledge but a lot more than that, with the help of our Project Based Learning, Seminars, conferences, workshops during the year and Sports, Literary and Cultural events at Ojus. With these events we try to help them improve their soft skills and communication which are important elements in building our personalities. Ojus is a celebration of education, literature, sports and our culture at college where we learn to grow as an individual outside the walls of our classroom. It's purpose is not only to entertain but to gain an insight into our own experiences and into the expanse that is our mind. And to learn the difference between what we are today and what we can be tomorrow. It's all a matter of what you decide to be a part of. Ojus represents a student's life outside the sphere of his/her logical mind. A diverse amalgamation of talents and creativity. We are committed to developing a community of lifelong learners, in almost all the aspects of personal development and growth, who can thrive in an ever changing world. After all, if you are not willing to learn, no one can help you but if you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.

I am writing for Ojus 2019 with utmost elation and delight. We at APSIT believe in providing great opportunities for the students to involve themselves in various activities which are quite diverse and challenging. Ojus is a platform for students to unleash their talent to their true potential as well as learn numerous skills to develop their personality. It is fulfilling to have our students in classrooms, enriching them with energy and enthusiasm for learning but we also aspire for our students to be the best in all aspects of their lives be it personal or professional, logical or emotional. It is our mission to help every student of APSIT to grow as an individual and a global citizen. Ojus brings out the best talents to the surface when students participate in events even if simply for entertainment. Through the sports, literary and cultural events we seek to instill in our students a passion for developing the soft skills and their personality that will bring the understanding they need to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live and work. We all stumble upon hurdles we face in our lives and though all of us don't get rewarded simply for participation, we learn the importance of trying to give our best at whatever we do. And every great accomplishment starts with the decision to try. We hope that Ojus helps our students in exploring their own passions and grow with the trials they face in the future. Education in engineering and technology has the power to transform lives but an overall development of the mind, body and soul transforms an individual's life. Let this Ojus be a celebration of growing and learning outside the classrooms.

"Dear students, It gives me great pleasure to write for Ojus 2019. To my mind an Educational Institute is a place where we build characters, enrich minds & artistic sensibilities amongst students, which will last long for a life time. Education cannot happen merely in classrooms, we must go beyond the walls of classrooms. Watching a play performed live is a quite different experience than reading a play from text.
Cultural activities are an integral part of student's College life.
Students participate in it for variety of reasons, for enjoyment & entertainment, for personal growth and development, expressing feelings, learning new skills and new culture. We have a rich tradition of Sports, Cultural, and Literary Events at APSIT.
Ojus at APSIT is an understanding of the culture of a nation;
APSIT students can broaden their horizons and gain unique insights into their own communities as well as a broader global perspective of our own diverse culture.
Ojus 2019 will surely provide ample opportunities to students to show artistic talents, it is an event where student may have an opportunity to explore new interest, and possibility of discovering new passion.
Best luck to all!"

Writing for Ojus gives me a felicity that we at APSIT feel every year during this fabulous amalgamation of Sports, Literature and our Culture. Ojus at APSIT is not just a Sports and Cultural event but a festival full of enthusiasm and surprises. We are committed to developing a community of students at our Institute who learn to grow within the society as global citizens and also contribute to it's progress. We provide ample opportunities to the students to participate in any and as many events of their liking and we encourage them to try to give their best. After all ,we make mistakes and tumble over diversions sometimes but mistakes undeniably prove that we're trying. The aim of Ojus is to involve the students through events in such a way that they learn the crucial elements of personality development which helps them in being confident and communicate efficiently. Ojus is a mini semester whose lectures are fun and exciting. And its outcomes would be lessons for life.

Dear students, I feel privileged and very ecstatic to write for Ojus 2019. We at APSIT strive to educate students in such a way that they be the best in all aspects of their lives. We work hard to instill in our students a hunger for knowledge as well as a passion for their hobbies and extra curricular activities. We need such understanding of our culture, literature and sports to have a positive contribution in the society we live in as well as to have a lasting impact on others in the areas where we work for the betterment of our country and our people. Ojus is the perfect opportunity for students to come forward and explore their own passions, they could work hard to be better at what they're already doing or they could simply learn something new with their peers at college. Education is of the mind, body and soul. And Ojus implements this saying by organizing several sports, literary and cultural events at APSIT. It doesn't only help them learn something new or mingle with their mates but most importantly, also grow as an individual within the society and develop their personality. Our students learn and grow outside the classrooms when they participate and give their best at the events. I certainly hope that at Ojus 2019 our students will learn something new as well as develop their skills and strive for excellence in the activities they're passionate about.
