Nirhaar-The annual magazine

Nirhaar is the annual magazine of IIIT Kottayam, that is managed by the Trendles club. Considering that we boast of a plethora of events that occur in our college, with the cultural and technical fests being a small part of it, the 'Nirhaar' is an assortment of accounts of these mesmerizing events along with artistic creativity of a number of students. So just as the coordination of millions of living cells of our body creates a consciousness that is independent of its cells, Nirhaar is an agglomeration of thoughts; the thoughts that collective consciousness of IIIT Kottayam possesses.
