Carpe Diem CUB English Club

Like the helm title, this club envisages and envisions the blossom of our deep delved artisanship. This club will serve its intellectual and aesthetic hospitality to the pupils.
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” Quoted by An Irish Playwright Oscar Wilde. We only exist in this tumultuous megalopolis of ginormous modernity. The Latin calque carpe diem has a ubiquitous offering, that is live the day, cease the day, be your own. This club will revamp and revivificate the hibernating self of us that has long been lost under the boulder of contemporaneity and quotidian life.
We are blessed with language and a rational mind. The concordance of both has distinguished us from the rest of the creations and posited us on the zenith of the crowd. Having blessed with this mastery and craftsmanship only human can narrate story, compose lyric, write ageless novel, imagine the unimagined, conquer the unconquered.
The club and its activity will work like a catalyst to distill the best out of the learners to demystify the ancient hermeneutic scroll of our unsung heart.
