"Anyone who tries to discriminate education and entertainment doesn't know either"
Marshall McLuhan


Through the years, Pragyan has played host to two kinds of participants: those who exhaust themselves by racking their brains all day long, and those who scorn the first kind. Infotainment, a series of mega-shows, serves to enthrall both! Whilst providing some much needed respite to pacify your sore grey cells, it also captivates the leisurely connoisseur in you.



By dishing out a plethora of shows delivering technology-fueled fun, Infotainment offers you a chance to unwind and let go! Over the years, audiences have been treated to mesmerizing shows on Liquid Laser, Techno-magic, Hand Shadowgraphy, Sand Animation, Aerobatics, Virtual Reality and Humanoid Robotics. Pragyan 2011 witnessed the famed ReacTable (music through touch interface) and Solar Punch (the world's first solar powered band). Pragyan 2012 promises nothing less than a scintillating assortment of Infotainment Shows which are NOT to be missed!

Sky Lantern


Sky Lanterns are traditionally used in Thailand for celebrations and festivals. Many people release sky lanterns to symbolize the release of their worries and problems. Sky Lanterns (Khoom Fay, in the media known as UFO shaped Balloons) are traditionally made of oiled rice paper on a bamboo frame that contains a waxy fuel cell. As part of celebrations, sky lanterns are launched together in large quantity to create a beautiful and curious spectacle that can be seen from far away in the night sky. Come visit us here at NIT Trichy as we kick off Pragyan with a beautiful display of Sky Lanterns.
