The Department of Philosophy at IP College is ready with its Annual Fest ‘Manthan 2012-2013’. Department students and faculty have made joint efforts to organize the two day event packed with knowledge and fun. For the entire month, the Department has worked for 9 hours beginning from 8 in the morning. From assigning duties to volunteers, to calling all the teachers-in-charge for follow up, the Union members have made possible the much awaited fest of the college. Ma’am Udaya from the Philosophy Department has not only monitored the overall working but has also helped with the singing practice.  

Department President Radhika Anand and Vice President Priyanka Gupta have collected the Rolling Trophy from Sri Venkateswara College and have worked for bringing together the department magazine by collecting articles, photographs, proof-reading and editing.
