The song for TAPMI, "Seekhi thi Zindagi"
Every year, MusicCom organizes an intra-TAPMI music extravaganza, called “Goonj”.
Goonj is an intra-college music competition between the five teams: two sections each of the first and second year PGP, and a faculty team. It’s theme is ‘Swar sarvathaa’, meaning the entirety of music, which brings to fore the very essence of completeness. Goonj ’09, to be held on the 28th of October 2009, represents tranquillity in the form of four theme based rounds – Bhavna (Emotions), Daur (Eras of Music), Prakaar (Genres of Music) and Raag Milap.
The program gains a professional touch with expert orchestra accompaniment and learned judges to evaluate the teams. On the evening of 28th of October the audience shall have the opportunity to witness Goonj 09 as five zealous teams battle it out at TAPMI's verdant greens. The winning team walks away with a rolling trophy and a heavy cash prize.
