Music Qu?z

The lunch break on Wednesday, the 13th of September, 2017, at Christ Junior College saw quite a number of music enthusiasts gathered in teams of 2, for the preliminary round of the much-awaited Music Quiz, organised by Sedes Minerva. The Quiz Master was Sasmith Rama Ananth, a student of 2 CAME L.

In a peaceful, laid-back environment, the prelims began. Participants were asked 15 questions, ranging from members of bands to events in the history of music. Those who were fanatics cleared the round with much ease, while others faced some difficulty answering. 5 teams proceeded to the finals.

The finals consisted of four pounce rounds. A round of Trivia which was followed by a Gear round. There was a tight competition among the teams. The next two rounds namely the Terminology and Signature Instrument rounds changed the whole quiz.

All the three places were bagged by  passionate musicians. We win few,we lose few,but at the end of the day ,we all learn something and Music Quiz was one among them said one of the quizzers.

We at Sedes Minerva are proud to have conducted a Music Quiz! Happy Quizzing and Stay tuned for more quizzes!

ಭೂಮ್ತಾಯಿ ಬಳಗದ ಹಾಡಿನ ಮಡಿಲಲ್ಲಿ…

ಪ್ರೇರಣ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಯು ದಿನಾಂಕ: ೦೧/೦೯/೨೦೧೭ ರಂದು ಭಾಷಾ ಸಪ್ತಾಹದ ಮುಕ್ತಾಯ ಸಮಾರಂಭವನ್ನುಹಮ್ಮೆಕೊಂಡಿತ್ತು.  ಈ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮಕ್ಕೆ ಭೂಮ್ತಾಯಿ ಬಳಗ ಎಂಬ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನ ಸುಪ್ರಸಿದ್ಧ ಜನಪದ ವಾದ್ಯವೃಂದವನ್ನು ಆಹ್ವಾನಿಸಲಾಗಿತ್ತು.  ಈ ತಂಡದವರು ಜಾಗತೀಕರಣದಿಂದ ಆಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ಪರಿಸರ ನಾಶ ಮತ್ತು ಆಧುನಿಕ ಮಾನವ ಜೀವನ ಶೈಲಿಯ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಹಾಡುಗಳನ್ನು ಹಾಡಿದರು. ತಮ್ಮ ಹಾಡುಗಳ ಮೂಲಕವೇ ನಮ್ಮ ನಾಡಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಶಿಸಿಹೋಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ಜಲ, ಮಣ್ಣು, ಪಕ್ಷಿ-ಪ್ರಾಣಿ ಮತ್ತು ಭಾಷಾ ಪ್ರೇಮದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತಿಳಿಸಿಕೊಟ್ಟರು. ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮದಲ್ಲಿ ಇವರು ತಮಟೆ, ಜಂಬೆ ಮತ್ತು ಡೋಲಿನ ನಾದದಲ್ಲಿ ಹಾಡಿದ ಹಾಡು ಬಹಳ ರಂಜನೀಯವಾಗಿತ್ತು.

ಮೊದಲಿಗೆ, ಇವರು ನಮ್ಮ ನಾಡಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಒಣಗಿ, ಬರದಾಗಿ ಹೋಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ನದಿಗಳ ಶೋಚನೀಯ ಸ್ಥಿತಿಯ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಹಾಡುತ್ತಾ, ಅವುಗಳನ್ನು ರಕ್ಷಿಸುವ ಜವಾಬ್ಧಾರಿ ನಮ್ಮದ್ದಾಗಿದೆ ಎಂಬ ಸಂದೇಶ ನೀಡಿದರು.  ಇದರ ಜೊತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ, ಅಭಿವೃದ್ಧಿಯ ಹೆಸರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಹೇಗೆ ನಾವು  ಅರಣ್ಯ ಹಾಗು ಅನೇಕ ಜಾತಿಯ ಪಕ್ಷಿಗಳನ್ನು ನಾಶ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದೆವೆ ಎಂಬುದರ  ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಅರಿವನ್ನು ಮೂಡಿಸಿದರು.  ನಂತರ, ನಮ್ಮ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ರಾಜಧಾನಿಯಾದ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನ ಅನೇಕ ಸ್ಥಳಗಳು ಬದಲಾಗುತ್ತ ಹೇಗೆ ತನ್ನ ವಿಶೇಷತೆಯನ್ನು ಕಳೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುತಿದೆ ಎಂಬುದರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಹಾಡಿದರು.  ಮುಂದೆ ತಂಡವು ವಿದೇಶಿ ಪಾನೀಯಗಳು ನಮ್ಮ ನಾಡಿನಲ್ಲಿ ತನ್ನ ಪ್ರಭಾವವನ್ನು ಹೆಚ್ಚಿಸಿಕೊಳುತ್ತ ನಮ್ಮ ಆರೋಗ್ಯದ ಮೇಲೆ ಕೆಟ್ಟ ಪರಿಣಾಮ ಬೀರುವುದರ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ನಮ್ಮ ದೇಸಿ ಪಾನೀಯಗಳ ಅಳಿವಿಗೆ ಮುಖ್ಯ ಕಾರಣವಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ ಎಂಬುದರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಅರಿವು ಮೂಡಿಸಿದರು.  ಕೊನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ, ಈ ಜಗತ್ತಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಯಾವುದು ಶಾಶ್ವತವಲ್ಲ, ನಾವು ಇಂದು ಇದ್ದು ನಾಳೆ ಹೋಗುವವರು.  ನಮ್ಮ ಸ್ವಾರ್ಥಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಪ್ರಕೃತಿಯನ್ನು ನಾಶ ಮಾಡುವುದು ಸರಿಯಲ್ಲ.  ನಮ್ಮ ಮುಂದಿನ ಪೀಳಿಗೆಗೆ ಅವಶ್ಯಕವಾದ ಜಲ, ಮಣ್ಣು, ಓಳ್ಳೆಯ ಗಾಳಿ ಮತ್ತು ಸುಂದರ ಪ್ರಕೃತಿಯನ್ನು ನಾಶ ಮಾಡದೆ ಬಿಟ್ಟು ಹೋಗುವುದು ನಮ್ಮ ಕರ್ತವ್ಯ ಎಂಬ ಸಂದೇಶ ನೀಡಲೆಂದು “ಎಲ್ಲ ಮಾಯ ನಾಳೆ ನಾವು ಮಾಯ” ಗೀತೆಯನ್ನು ಹಾಡಿ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮಕ್ಕೆ ಮಂಗಳ ಹಾಡಿದರು.

ಭೂಮ್ತಾಯಿ ಬಳಗ ತಂಡದವರು ನಮ್ಮ ಕಾಲೇಜಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಿರಂತರವಾಗಿ ಒಂದೂವರೆ ಗಂಟೆಗಳ ಕಾಲ ಉತ್ಸಾಹದ ಪ್ರದರ್ಶನ ನೀಡಿದರು.  ಅವರ ಹಾಡುಗಳ ಮೂಲಕ ವಿದ್ಯಾರ್ಥಿಗಳಾದ ನಮಗೆ ಪರಿಸರದ ರಕ್ಷಣೆಯ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಅರಿವು ಮೂಡಿತು.  ಅವರ ಹಾಡುಗಳಿಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲ ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕರು  ಮೆಚ್ಚುಗೆ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಪಡಿಸಿದರು.

Name of the village – Halisanakaipura, Hoskote district.

Name of the host- Mrs Shakuntala

They started the Chetana Child Focus Community Development (CDFC). The project started in the survey period of 6 months. There were 80 villages out of which 15 were selected, 14 accepted the CSA and 1 did not.


  • Children education
  • Children nutrition
  • Health and hygiene
  • Income generation
  • Self-help groups

They started growing fruits/vegetables in the village. They started water sharing program for lands which did not work. For 7 years (15 /30 days) CSA had awareness programs.The people later accepted the ICDS (organisation) after a long time, they made it aware that the people in the village had to grow and consume. The children who were born in the village, out of 30 only 4 to 5 were normal, later, these 24 to 25 came down to 3 to 4 in every village this improved as CSA took care of the growth and distribution from 2003 -2010. Every family had one and half an acre in which ½ acre was used for cultivation.


They had schools from 1st to 5th grade. In each family, only 5 children could study. CSA provided stationary to each and every child and awareness programs conducted for parents about the importance of education and tried convincing them. Children went to school and then came home played, worked, etc. They also had singing, dancing classes from 5-8 pm, later, children went to other villages and got prizes.


Due to increase in diseases which turned out to be very dangerous for the villagers and the young kids; they had no money for a hospital’s visit. 7th and 8th girls were trained so that they could provide first aid to the villagers like dog bites, fever, etc. primary health care centres for pregnant ladies (treatment). They started a scheme named ASHA.


WOMEN GROUP – The women in the village had meetings and started saving money. The SANGAS helped a lot, they had 60 groups of 760 people who had 1 crore 60 lakh as their savings, when people wanted money it was given at 2% interest to welfare group, 85 lakh was the interest. Women and community development were started. The government did not help them but wanted invitation when villagers were awarded.

We were taken to houses and a school where we got an opportunity to spend time with the children and their families. Later, we were provided with lunch. Thanks to Christ Junior College for giving us an opportunity and also the people who lived in the village. Wishing them all the very best for their future.

On the 19th of August, PES University conducted various competitions and project exhibits. My friends and I were taken there, to participate in the “AMATEUR SCIENTIST” contest, organized by the Institute members.  There were students coming from various parts of the country to take part in the competition.  We had a   delightful experience in explaining and elaborating our projects to the visitors. There were 85+ scintillating projects exhibited.  Our students also took part in the quiz contest and attended workshops. We were provided with food tokens and refreshments.  Overall, it was remarkably one of the best experiences that I have ever had.  We all had great exposure and gained immense knowledge from the workshops that we had attended. At the end of the day with lots of knowledge and memories, we boarded our ride back to our campus. I cordially thank the management and our teacher Mr.Satish.R for providing this opportunity to showcase our talent.
