In a technical institute it is often seen that importance is given only to science and arts is relegated to obscurity. In an attempt to strike the right balance between science and the literary arts, Vidyalankar Institute of Technology initiated its Literary Council. The responsibilities entrusted on this Council included organizing literary events such as debates, quizzes, elocution, spell bee, mock parliament, poetry writing, publishing the prestigious annual college magazine ‘V Express’, preparation of the quarterly e-newsletter ‘Vibes’ and also the newsletter ‘Vector’ in association with DNA and conducting other literary activities at regular intervals.
