North East Society

Convenor

Aim and Moto

The North East Society of Satyawati College aims to explore the rich cultural diversity of the eight states collectively known as the Northeast region of India. It welcomes all students of the college who wish to learn about this region and aims to spread awareness amongst the college community to amalgamate the nation with the iridescent cultures of Northeast India. It has been the constant endeavor of this society to provide a platform to the students living outside Northeast and activities are carefully chosen to help them affirm their identity, to acquaint them with the socio-political realities and to help and assist them emotionally and psychologically. The Northeast Society is a very active society with a dedicated team of office bearers elected every year who work under the mentorship of enthusiastic teachers who volunteer to guide the students. The society focuses on the issues relating to the Northeast and organizes activities around this theme which includes screening relevant movies and documentaries, inviting scholars and speakers with expertise on the issues pertaining to the Northeast. The society organizes seminars and discussions with authors who have written books about the region. The Pandemic has brought the activities to a grinding halt and the Society has been working in online mode to help the students cope with the problems caused by the unprecedented scenario.
