Having entertained the audience for seven years, the festival was back to rock the young students again. Synapse, which implies the junction between two neurons, was a meeting ground for the students of various colleges and also an enthralling cultural festival of elaborate grandeur.

The theme of the festival was Halloween and the entire college ground was decorated in a similar manner, giving the feel of a haunted castle as one entered it. And though the rain gods acted a spoilsport during some of the events, the enthusiasm of the young crowd kept it going.  

The first day of the festival had events like mad ads, movie spoof and street play. But it was the rock show held in the evening which saw the students enjoying the most. The event had an overwhelming participation of 14 bands from Bangalore and had the performers rocking it out on stage till late night. The winners were Black Sun, Band Aid and 30 Ton Capacity.

The second day started a little slow but caught on with the antakshari event, which had a lot of students participating. “The antakshari was quite entertaining and the crowd this year is more than previous years,” said Prakurthi, a second year student.

Soon it was the time for the Kannada theatre which had students as well as teachers performing a variety of song and dance pieces on stage. Specially hilarious was the dance performance by Madhusudan, a student who performed an item number. The crowd was in splits as he did the jhatkas on the stage.

The other events which kept the students busy through the three days were group dance, solo dance, mehendi, face painting, and stand-up comedy, personality contest, street dance, fine arts, solo song, and photography.

The fashion show, titled Rampage was the high point of the second day and had teams from M S Ramaiah College of Law and Management, Dayananda Sagar College, Bishop Cottons Women's Christian College and Sri Bhagawan Mahavir Jain College participating.

The evening had the students walking the ramp in ethnic wear after which they showcased a collection on a self-chosen theme.  The team from Dr B R Ambedkar Medical College modelled a collection inspired by a pack of playing cards, where black and red remained the prominently used colours. They were also declared the winners of the contest, much to the joy of the students.
