Our Vibe

Memory Lane

Once upon a time in a faraway land, when we weren’t human time bombs ticking under the constant pressure of deadlines, ready to explode any minute, there existed a child— a child whose life consisted of cassette players, Gameboys, bedtime stories, old Disney movies, pen fights, outdoor games and all the Daag Acche Hain moments.

Our theme, Memory Lane, attempts to take you back to your childhood days where there were very little worries in the world. Imagine sand pits, adventure sports, hammocks, cotton candy vendors, music, and everything that makes you feel like a child again!

The term 'Banjaara' is derived from the nomadic people who travelled from Afghanistan to Rajasthan. Like the lively, culturally rich Banjaara, our festival will mimic your travel back to memory lane as though it were a destination you crave to return to. Initially crafted around the desire for wanderlust, Banjaara has become a unique experience in the plethora of university level cultural festivals. The Banjaara, or nomadic wanderer, actively absorbs multiple perspectives and develops a richer, more empathetic understanding of the world. A collaborative endeavour of all the Clubs and Societies at Ashoka, the Fest Committee and the entire student body, Banjaara adds to the sense of community and belonging, as we all travel together down the memory lane.

Social Impact


Environmentally Friendly 2.0


As a socially responsible festival, we would like to be respectful of the environment and people we are surrounded by. Situated at the borderland of Delhi and Haryana, the idiosyncrasies of the two regions become central to the Ashokan experience, and we intend to create sensitivity and awareness of it. We have organised Haat of exceptional craftspeople, artisans and food from different parts of the region to promote the rich culture that surrounds us. Moreover, we are also trying to reduce our environmental footprint as much as we can. Find our more about our initiatives here.
