Prayaan is a Technical cum Cultural fest organized every year by the cadets of I.M.U- MUMBAI PORT CAMPUS to celebrate the knowledge and talents of young minds and hone their skills.This fest provides platform for the cadets to evolve into quality mariners with great ethical and professional values.
For the first time “PRAYAAN” was organized in 2015 under the tagline “VOYAGE BEGINS” and it became the source of illuminating knowledge for cadets and various guests.We enjoyed, celebrated, learned and gained experience .Our first edition was a blast!
The second one,“PRAYAAN 2016” began with an enthusiastic call from the industry under the tagline “SAILING WITH PRIDE”.We continued this endeavor making an impact on the mindset of society over marine industry.
The third one,“PRAYAAN 2017” began with the spirit of “CONQUERING THE SEAS” and going all engines full ahead imparting knowledge and awareness towards social issues in a promise to lay a hand in building a better society.
And here we are all set in 2018 for a continued VOYAGE TOWARDS EXCELLENCE with the hope that this incessant journey becomes a precedent for all the other upcoming maritime fests.
So. we welcome you at “PRAYAAN 2018” for a techno cultural venture beyond imagination and invite you to be a part of this “VOYAGE TOWARDS EXCELLENCE”.
Without further a due, we would like you to come to this grand festival and help us keep our promise.
