Ritayan – the Music and Dance Club of BBA, is a club that organizes many social and cultural events for the students to take a break from their hectic schedules and relax. Not only do they get to exhibit their musical and dancing skills in front of their peers, but also display teamwork, coordination, and work-life balance. We believe that Dance and Music are the liveliest enhancement of a youthful soul. The members of Ritayanendeavour to facilitate the development of the students as a whole and strive to provide a climate that nurtures their holistic growth.
Ranging from regular competitions among batches and batch-mates to dance workshops, Ritayan organises a variety of events to keep the creative juices flowing. It also collaborates with other clubs and committees from time to time by putting up dance and music performances at their events, among other things.
With our events, we always create an environment that is trusting and spontaneous; and encourages flexibility, celebration, and recognition.

Spic Macay (Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth) is a non-political, nationwide, voluntary movement founded in 1977 by Dr Kiran Seth, Professor-Emeritus at IIT-Delhi who was awarded the ‘Padma Shri’ for his contribution to the arts in 2009.
Spic Macay’s intention is to enrich the quality of formal education by increasing awareness about different aspects of Indian heritage and inspiring the young mind to imbibe the values embedded in it. It seeks to inspire youth through experiencing the mysticism embodied in the rich and heterogeneous cultural tapestry of Indian and World Heritage, with a hope that the beauty, grace, values and wisdom embodied in these arts will influence their way of life and thinking and inspire one to become a better human being.
Sanjeev & Ashwani Shankar had performed at this Spic Macay event. The Shankar brothers are one of the best shehnai players of India. They have to their credit a wide spectrum of performances and have mesmerised the audiences at various music festivals. This event was organised on the April 2, 2019.
