Symphony holds a very special place for everyone at K. J. Somaiya College of Engineering. The annual cultural fest, according to them, proves to the world that they are more than just “academic robots”, as their status suggests. So, while every year at Symphony is a memorable one, this year’s is going to get a completely new identity!
In a world where we are shackled by the strict rules of piety, everyone needs a getaway that will free them from mundane realities. A place where the unlikeliest of people come together and the things that are usually separated by the laws of nature, reunite. The human brain is such that it is constantly looking to create moments of complete bliss, where all of its worries fade into oblivion. There exists a place that is completely conducive to happiness, a place where the human mind is constantly in a state of bliss, such is Eudaemonia. Eudaemonism is a moral philosophy that describes “doing-well” as a means of living the best life you could dream of. So hold on to your horses as we bring to you Symphony 2020- A Eudaemonic Fiesta.
