Indian Heritage Week : 19th – 25th Nov 2016
Event Date: 20/Jan/2017
The World Heritage Week which is celebrated all over the world between 19th November to 25th November. The vision is to increase awareness and encourage the young learners about the preservation and safety of the cultural heritages and monuments of the country. To live the ancient Indian culture, tradition and heritage, it is necessary to understand the science behind the variety of priceless cultural heritage and historical monuments; to know how they built these heritages without having any knowledge of so called advanced technology and without having sophisticated tools, machinery and systems.
Events and Description
KCT has taken the initiative to celebrate the World Heritage Week this year in the city by organizing a Science Contest for School Students from class 8th – 12th , by giving a Science touch to the historical structures of India, tourist places and cultural and traditional heritages of our country.
The human spirit in ancient India has given to the world, knowledge in fields like production technology, mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, navigation, architecture, civil engineering, medical science, physics, chemistry, logic, astronomy, mathematics and so on. There are many such instances in mostly all these fields. There is evidence that many elements in all these varied aspects of today’s global civilization owe their origin to ancient India.
In ancient India, unlike today, sophisticated tools, machinery and systems were unheard of. Yet there were numerous contributions that were made even in the absence of the above. In fact a lot of attention was given to every minute detail to make such contributions.
How were they able to build great monuments without any flaws , develop planned irrigation and sewage systems, treat many diseases, were able to do many surgeries like cataract and fractures that too without the advanced technology? This event will give students a platform to search the answer for these questions and will help them to use some of those techniques to create cost effective inventions in future.
One of the oldest civilizations in the world, the Indian civilization has a strong tradition of science and technology. Ancient India was a land of sages and seers as well as a land of scholars and scientists. Research has shown that from making the best steel in the world to teaching the world to count, India was actively contributing to the field of science and technology centuries long before modern laboratories were set up. Many theories and techniques discovered by the ancient Indians have created and strengthened the fundamentals of modern science and technology. While some of these groundbreaking contributions have been acknowledged, some are still unknown to most.
This event will give students a chance to do research and to bring in light, the science and technology involved in ancient India.
Students shall do research about Science and technology in Ancient India and come up with a prototype model with posters on the mentioned theme.
Any model showcasing the Science associated with Indian Culture and Heritage.
Eg. architecture, medical science, irrigation system etc.
Any explanation about science and technology used in ancient India on the mentioned topics can be described using a Power Point or a chart.
Description of Topics:
This event is organized to make students learn more about the culture and heritage, science and technology involved in ancient India.
Arts Events – 3D
The diversity in India is unique. Being a large country with large population, India presents endless varieties of physical features and cultural patterns. It is the land of many languages. It is only in India, people professes all the major religions of the world. In short, India is “the epitome of the world”. The vast population is composed of people having diverse creeds, customs and colours.

The winning team will be given an opportunity to showcase their talent in the proshow of KCT Yugam – Annual Inter College Techno Cultural Festival of KCT.
The folklores and folktales have been an eternal part of every culture since ages. When it comes to Indian folk tales, the country of diverse religions, languages and cultures has a complete range of tales and short stories. Indian folklore has a wide range of stories and mythological legends, which emerge from all walks of life.
The winning group will be given an opportunity to showcase their talent in the proshow of KCT Yugam – Annual Inter College Techno Cultural Festival of KCT along with prizes.
Indian art consists of a variety of art forms. Pencil/Charcoal Art is one of the oldest drawing media, for instance, the ancient Nawarla Gabarnmang charcoal drawing (26,000 BCE) – and is commonly used by artists even today.
