Arthanomics: An Economics Festival

Arthanomics, the annual Economics festival of Jai Hind College was initiated in 2014 by The Economics Association. It's a festival that gives young, budding economists a chance to experience the multifarious simulations and events relating to economics in the real world. Since its inception, it has always been a platform for college students to display their passion for economics.

Last year, the two-day festival witnessed 300 participants from over 20 colleges and above all, the opening ceremony with Mr. Ram Jethmalani- a catalyst for his contribution to Indian law- as chief guest and speaker.

We hosted 30 colleges out of which 12 colleges were from cities across the country and had participation from Kolkata, New Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Jaipur, Ahmedabad as well as various prestigious colleges of Mumbai which allowed students to learn beyond the realm of textbooks as they participated in the wide variety of events specially created by Team Arthanomics.

Set against the backdrop of an economics and business festival, Arthanomics got together every single student out there: from economists and entrepreneurs to activists and debate connoisseurs, those that define this generation, those that believe that no age is too young to have an expertise and that nobody is too small to create an impact.

This year the fest recorded a footfall of over 9000 with participation of colleges from all over India. The theme for this year was 'On the GRID’ which threw light on the rising dependency of Economies and Societies on technology and how businesses grow and are bred online. Our events inculcated the theme and we thus developed India's first technology policy making event; Tech In Trouble along with Arthanomics Assembly, MockStock, Doom and Destiny (underground trading game), Entrepreneurial Escapade, Powerplay and All's well that sells well. Arthanomics 2019 went international with the online event Journalism in Jeopardy which saw participation from colleges of Hong Kong, Singapore and Canada.

The effort put in by the Core and the Organising committee was rewarded by the wonderful feedback received from the participants who applauded the fest not only for the quality and content of events but also for the organization, creativity and efficiency of the team. The fest was adorned with an esteemed set of judges who talked highly about our events, team and participation. Here are the reviews from the judges:

Vikram V. Koppikar - Media and technology lawyer: “An absolute delight to have participated in Arthanomics 2019. Judging Collegiate team on technology and law allowed me to interact with some very enterprising and innovative youngsters.”

Rohit Ahuja - Marketing and Brand Management at Bharti AXA: “ It was a pleasure and honour to serve on the hurry panel of All’s well that sells well, marketing competition at Arthanomics 2019. To adjudge entries stemming from our fresh, young minds was nothing short of enlightening on the lens with which the youth perceives digital platform and its leverage as media vehicles. It was fulfillinf to interact with the students and demystify their queries on all things marketing.”

Hufeza Motiwala - Marketing Maven, Digital and Social media marketing: "Honoured to have an opportunity to judge the participants for a social media marketing campaign at Arthanomics, Jai Hind College. Arthanomics is one of India’s leading academic festival."

Nirav Bakshi - Technology policy and evolution: "It was a pleasure and honour to be part of Arthanomics 2019. It was great to see students engaging with technology policy and law with enthusiasm and gusto."

Arthanomics 2020:

The eighth edition of Arthanomics marked an important moment in the fest’s history, as it successfully transformed into India’s First Online Business and Economics Festival. For the first time, the team conceptualised, collaborated, executed, and streamed all events and activities completely online, from 14th - 16th August, 2020. This was made possible by the dedicated efforts of the core team, comprising of:

  1. Chairpersons: Riddhi Samarth and Mohit Dewan
  2. Head of Administration & Outreach: Swasti Bharill and Poorva Badaya
  3. Deputy Head of Administration and Outreach: Simran Sangal
  4. Head of Collaborations & Tech: Lavisha Dasani and Srushti Malde
  5. Deputy Head of Collaborations & Tech: Prajakta Patankar
  6. Head of Events: Himani Bakhda and Deepika Talwar
  7. Deputy Head of Events: Yash Mamtani and Hriday Mehta

  10. Head of Sponsorship & Finance: Yashvi Jain and Namasvi Parikh
  11. Deputy Head of Sponsorship & Finance: Maanavi Singh and Sameer Verma

With a youth-driven ethos that fosters dynamic perspectives, Arthanomics has always been a platform for innovation, but with a global health crisis looming large, the team of 2020 had a unique challenge to face. However, under the guidance of Ms. Sarita Jaishankar, the student committee decided to redefine what it means to host a college festival in “the new normal”.

While a team of nearly 100 students worked towards creating an immersive online experience, Arthanomics harnessed the power of the youth by collaborating with Indus Action, a policy implementation organisation working on a pan-India COVID-19 Rapid Response Campaign. Helping over 3400 families secure basic necessities like food and medicines, the students worked to ensure the wellbeing of communities which were most severely affected by the lockdown. Furthermore, the team organised “The Artha Series”, a range of over 15 carefully curated webinars and panel discussions, where industry leaders tackled pertinent topics like climate change, gender justice, mental health, and much more. Utilizing the full potential of its social media presence, Arthanomics also became a voice of optimism during the lockdown by launching their “See The Good” campaign on Instagram - aimed at bringing real stories of success and creativity to the forefront, in an otherwise bleak time.

Arthanomics 2020 drew inspiration from the surrounding disruption to find the central theme that it would incorporate into every event - “Creation in Chaos”. Whether it was entrepreneurship, art, policymaking, debate, philosophy, journalism, or marketing; each of the 11 events highlighted how we are facing disruption at an all time high, but within this disruption lies an opportunity for change. From departmental meetings, to detailed trial runs, to even the closing ceremony - every aspect of the fest took to the online format with great ease, a fact which led the team to livestream every single event on YouTube and Facebook. The success of this transition was most evident in Artha Connect - a two-day long networking event, where every participant connected virtually with strangers, played fun games and challenges together, and forgot just for a few minutes that they were stuck at home and not interacting in-person with fellow participants.

With over 250 participants from across India, and several entries from abroad, Arthanomics saw perhaps the most excellent caliber of participation in the fest’s history. This included participants from reputed institutes like St. Xavier’s, HR College, IIT Bombay, Christ University, LSR (Delhi University), SRCC, Ashoka University, and several more. Having over 25 sponsors like Eureka Forbes, Colors Infinity, Shapoorji Pallonji, and Pharmeasy, and a diverse list of uniquely qualified judges on board, quality was one thing that the team did not compromise on at all, as the fest took its maiden voyage online.


Arthanomics 2021:

Arthanomics-2021, the flagship event of the Economics Department of Jai Hind College was organized on 14th and 15th August. The 8th edition of one of India's biggest online business and economics festivals aimed to provide the participants with a unique platform - where new ideas and bold action meet, to tackle contemporary issues with creativity.

The legacy of Arthanomics is the core belief of creating change, no matter what the cause. This year too we took the legacy forward and adopted the issue of sustainability to find solutions and make a difference.

Due to the pandemic, the education crisis in our country has worsened and the technologically disadvantaged section of learners have been worst hit. As an endeavour to help those affected, we planned our Community Service activity in collaboration with E-vidyaloka. 40 of our volunteers digitized 40 chapters for underprivileged students and these videos reached and benefited more than 25 lakh students.

This year we organized 9 ‘Artha Series’ webinars where industry leaders and experts shared views on pertinent topics like sustainability, career prospects, data analytics, etc.

Since the central idea of our event was sustainability i.e., finding the solutions to keep mankind alive, we chose the theme ‘Get Set Reset’ which focused on taking positive and corrective action. We tried to reflect this theme through our website as well, which was digitally sustainable. We had 10 events ranging from debates, case studies, marketing to entrepreneurship. We focused on incorporating our theme in each and every event to emphasize the need for sustainable growth and taking immediate action. Our tech team made sure all our events from webinars to the main events were conducted smoothly and flawlessly. Most of our events were also live-streamed on YouTube.

Artha-connect which is Arthanomics’ networking platform took place a day before the main festival where we curated and hosted games like Guess it, Murder Mystery, etc. This set the tone for our festival and gave the participants the perfect platform to network and get to know each other before the real competition began.

Arthanomics 2021 was very well received with over 300 participants from across India and several entries from abroad. This included participants from reputed institutes like St. Xavier’s, Christ University, LSR (Delhi University), Ashoka University, HR College, and several others. The team got 37 sponsors including First Ventures, The Belgian Waffle Co., Boston Institute of Analytics, Cafe Condi, and a diverse list of highly qualified judges on board. We are grateful to the support received by all.


Kani - the intercollegiate arts festival of the English Association.

Kani: A Cultural Gathering is the intercollegiate arts festival of the English Association, founded and manifested for the first time on September 11th and 12th, 2015.
Kani emerged from a collective, deep desire to create a college festival that truly allowed every person to explore his or her creativity in a non-judgmental space. The festival’s spirit was the elimination of competition and it was designed with two days of deep and spontaneous exploration of theatre, music, fine art, film and literature.
For its inaugural year, Kani hosted a large number of people. The festival partnered with some of Mumbai’s best cultural groups and distinguished personalities, and floored viewers who got the chance to interact with, amongst others -

- Thespo, the internationally renowned youth theatre organization
- Anand Gandhi, Director of the acclaimed film Ship of Theseus
- Deepak Ramola, Spoken word poet, and Bollywood’s youngest lyricist
- Jashn – e – Qualam, the Hindustani Dramatic readings group
- Tejas Menon, acclaimed singer-songwriter
- Arnesh Ghosh, founder of the youth theatre company Mirror Merchants
- Jehan Manekshaw, Founder-Director of The Drama School, Mumbai

The events were bold, creative and unconventional - designed to help students experience intuitive art and expression. Some of them were:

  • Badman - a political satire, public speaking event where participants had to use the power of rhetoric to convince ‘voters’ of the validity of a negative philosophy
  • Moods of Movement – a meditative experience in which we explored movement and the human body
  • Art Factory – this event made participants experience collective creation in an industrial setting, through rotational painting under supervision.
  • Spontaneous Creation – this presented participants with a blend of audio, video and light in order to stimulate expression, resulting in a huge assortment of abstract art and impromptu performances.
  • Plays Presented by Thespo – Kani organized a week-long workshop in collaboration with Thespo, to mold and challenge the skills of young actors.It concluded with the performances of these budding actors on the Kani stage.
  • Intellectual Cosplay – in this event, the participants came dressed in body and mind with the clothing and personality of their favorite artists, for an afternoon of conversation, self-exploration and merriment.

These were interspersed with a talk by Anand Gandhi; an Open Mic for spoken word poetry, music and comedy, hosted by Deepak Ramola; and a musical evening with artists like Tejas Mennon, True School of Music, and Dean D’souza.
The festival also included a Spoken Word Poetry Workshop with the Airplane Poetry Movement, a Meta Scavenger Hunt, an all-day Book Nook to sit and read in and a Meditation Corner.
The aesthetics of the events were crucial to the space.The beautiful indie atmosphere, set up with fairylights and sari-wall-hangings,was extremely well received, allowing people to enter a completely different space.
Students from colleges across Mumbai attended the festival, on an individual basis, to reinforce the spirit of non-competitiveness. Students from Whistling Woods, Wilson College, K.C. College,St. Xavier’s College, Sophia College, Mithibai College, and more attended the festival.
Kani was born in April of 2015, and its incredibly dedicated and creative team of core members and department heads worked tirelessly to realize a vision. The team of Kani 2015:

Chairperson – Manvi Ranghar
Events Head – Abhishek Lamba
Aesthetics Head – Nidhi Shetty
Sponsorship Head – Kalash Pandiya
Administration Head – Aarushi  Agrawal
Speakers Head – Nidhi Shetty
PR Heads – Vatsala Sharma and Huzan Bhumgara
Core Team Members – Zohra Malik, Payal Mohta, Sanaya Nanavati, Zahra Baldiwala, Aayush Asthana, Priyanka Banerjee, Aliza Matani, Saanchi Nadkarni.

Additionally, the students were supported by the Faculty Members of the English Department. Prof. June Dias, Prof. Divya Bhatnagar supported the student team. Prof. Deepna Rao and Prof. Anamika Purohit provided their advice, guidance and faith during this huge undertaking.
Kani was an idea of a space, where expectation and competition would not dilute the expression and experience of art. It manifested in the form of a college festival put together by the efforts of a student body committed to its idea, and was made hugely successful by the large number of attendees and an overwhelmingly positive response. In the years to come, Kani aims to expand this ideology and impact for everyone involved, and to leave behind an even greater experience.
