Event Overview

Come winter, the gates to Central India’s Largest Cultural Festival are opened, ushering in an unprecedented medley of excitement and zeal. 

The Cultural Extravaganza, studded with electrifying and exhilarating events and competitions, 
witnesses a whooping footfall of over 25,000 and a participation of around 5000 students in our campus. 
Conceptualized way back in 1988, Aarohi has come a long way in all realms both qualitatively and quantitatively and has firmly ensconced itself as the centerpiece of the cultural spectrum of the region. 

Aarohi is a Non-profit Organisation completely organized and coordinated by the willingness and true spirits of a group of VNITian’s when their individual strengths and skills are combined with teamwork, in the pursuit of a common cause, in order to produce meaningful results for the organization. Aarohi truly has become one of the most awaited festivals in India. 

This year, we will be celebrating the 31st edition of Aarohi at VNIT, Nagpur
