Acharya Habba is the annual techno-cultural fest organised by Acharya Institute of Technology, Bangalore. It is a month-long event held in the month of March or April each year. It draws about 30,000 students from more than 300 colleges from across Bangalore and Karnataka.[4][5][6]

The festival also includes the Acharya International Habba, usually on the first or the second day, that has performances by the international students studying in the campus.[7][8][9][10]

Etymology[edit]

The word "Acharya Habba" derives from the Kannada word "ಆಚಾರ್ಯ ಹಬ್ಬ" — from ಆಚಾರ್ಯ (Acharya), meaning "Acharya Institutes", and ಹಬ್ಬ (Habba),[11] meaning "festival". So, collectively the word "Acharya Habba" means the festival of Acharya Institutes.[12]

History[edit]

Started in 2005 as an intra-collegiate cultural fest, Acharya Habba has grown into one of the largest inter-collegiate festivals in Bangalore and Karnataka.[13] The 2011 edition of the culfest witnessed Ragini Dwivedi, RJ Prithvi from Radio One and Vinapra cheering up the crowd.[14] Singer Benny Dayal along with his band performed on the April 9, last night, of Acharya Habba 2011.[15][16]
