Carpe Diem, the annual cultural festival of IIM Calcutta, has grown tremendously in size and stature to become India’s one of the most anticipated college festival. Carpe Diem aims to celebrate life. From shows by leading exponents of classical music to popular rock shows from performers across the globe, we have staged them all. It is not just all fun and games, though. In keeping with the spirit of the institute, we strive to do our bit for the society. Addressing social issues, such as female foeticide and acid attacks, through street plays and marathon runs, as well as undertaking initiatives like helping the underprivileged are some of the highlights of the festival. Carpe Diem is the most wonderful experience for all whom it touches.
