Why Cult

Why CULT? The dropping of the apple, the smile of Monalisa, the summer of 69, ‘Shehensha’ the Indian Robin Hood story and as it goes in our heads, these contradictions have made enough heads turn. What they have in common are behind the scene stories of people who have been bold, courageous, curious to ask questions and look for expressions going beyond the explanations of the times. Going forward they have now become cults and we need not explain why anymore.

That’s the attitude we want to stand up for and shout out to the world in our first ever student led college fest at World School of Design. Raise praise and embrace the crazy in you.
