One of the most prestigious events for the youth in Pune, Youths. Firodia Karandak, started in 1974 has bestowed high repute to the organization. This inter collegiate competition of performing arts attracts more than 1,500 college students every year.
The event showcases the epitome of zeal, passion and dedication of all the participants and has had eminent personalities from the film industry which include Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar & Saira Bano, Shashi Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor and many more blessing this event as chief guests. This is just a 45 minutes Live Cinema on stage and a galore of all performing arts; dance, music, drama, painting, singing etc.

Nothing on stage is pre-recorded or taped. Everything is live. Be it songs, music pieces, dances or even on the spot improvisations; everything is done on the wooden platform in person. If anyone is found using any alternate methods the entire college team is immediately disqualified. The whole idea behind Firodiya Karandak is- ‘Cinema on Stage’ wherein everything needs to be performed live.”
