Illuminati

The Engineering of Illumination

Illumination, the festival, is artistic, big, grand and huge. It also burns lakhs of rupees in a few minutes! But that’s not what Illu should be known for. To an outsider not associated with IIT Kharagpur, Illu or Illumination is an enigma. “It must be their college fest – these IITians like to keep fancy names,” some say. But Illu is a celebration of Diwali on campus, and a very hatke celebration at that. It is an eye-opening journey, an experience that motivates every IIT KGP-ian to go back to campus every year. The aim of this book has been to cover the entire landscape of Illu, and the photographer has been able to paint the picture with as much attention to fine detail as to the panorama.
