Keeping in touch with roots

Keeping in touch with roots


POPULAR A street dance.

Their annual fest Visages had 20 events spread over two days. And it saw students pour in to make the best of it.

Miss India Nicole Faria who inaugurated the fest got nostalgic about her own college days.  Her presence at the fest created a huge buzz and students from various other colleges were happy just to get a glimpse of her.

From the very first event, the fest spelled out fun for one and all.

The ice-breaker round gave students a chance to let their hair down and introduce themselves in an innovative way. The session kept the audience occupied for a long time. What really stood out in the fest was the way every event was knitted to the theme of the fest, Confluence of Culture.

Says Saif, the student cultural co-ordinator, “We wanted to highlight the rich Indian culture. Many in this college believe that no matter where we go we must never forget our roots.”  Keeping that in mind, the students put up a wonderful costume presentation. The participants came dressed in different ethnic clothes and shared a few thoughts about different culture.

Events like Indian classical singing, filmi solo dance, folk dance, western electric were the crowd-pullers.

“At the same time off-stage events like face painting, flower arrangement, creative writing and debate also saw a lot of participation from the student,” says Nandini, a student.

One event that kept even the judges rolling with laughter was the ‘Air Crash’.

It put each participant in a plane crash like situation, where only one parachute was left. Here the participants had to impersonate a famous personality and convince the judges as to why they would need the parachute to survive.

 “This was really funny because we had people impersonating personalities like Yeddyurappa, Rakhi Sawant and even Pamela Anderson,” said Roger, another student.
However, the highlight of the fest was the western and street dance events.

The dances were impressive and many students described events like a scene out of the popular dance movie, ‘Step Up’. “Both days were nice and made sure there was something there for everybody making it a grand success,” adds Roger.
