Commerce Students participating in the fun filled Onyx 2017 showed their competitive side by contesting for top honours.

ONYX - dimension of distinction, is being organized since the inception of Mahesh Tutorials Commerce and this year the event had 2000 participants from more than 75 different colleges from across Mumbai. ONYX was divided into cultural and sports activities and was organised on two days at different venues.

There was immense competition in the sports events such as the races and relays. The competition was so fierce that students had started practicing weeks in advance. There were many other exciting events from T-20 to Gym events, Fine Arts to Performing Arts, Fun events to literary events. There were around 54 events held during Onyx. Each event had a unique name like Zabardast Pheku, Bhuvan Kaun, Jodi No. 1, Param Paragat Paridhan, and Chunaav Tanaav. The students even engaged professional choreographers to win the title of ONYX Champ.
ONYX encourages Team Spirit, Team Building Efforts and camaraderie in students. Every team appoints students who take responsibility of organizing finance, publicity, choreographers and other resources needed by the team. They have to decide the students who will take part in particular events and then keep the momentum and encouragement high till the event is over so that the team wins because although the individual events count the ONYX Champ is the team. In other words ONYX helps students learn to organize themselves in life and the career that they will be taking up in the future.
