Celebrating first innings


FIRST DAY: Freshers settle in to a new atmosphere.

The intra-college Freshers’ Fest was held at the Mount Carmel College (Degree) from July 1 to 3. The name chosen for the fest this year was First Innings 2009. It was called so because it was the first innings for the first year students as Carmelites, the first innings of MCC’s cultural year and the first innings of the new student government.

The primary objective of this fest was to discover and nurture new talent among juniors. Needless to say, on all three days, the atmosphere was charged and the competition intense. On each day of the fest, a different dress code was to be followed by the students. The dress code for the first day was Back to School, which had juniors and enthusiastic seniors back in their school uniforms and pigtails. The second day saw a burst of yellow and orange as the dress code was Wear your Sunshine, which served as a perfect antidote for a cloudy day. The final day was Bohemian, which the girls celebrated with beads, bandanas, chunky jewellery, long skirts and colourful tops.

It was indeed heartening to see that the dress code on some of the days was followed by the staff as well! The ambience of this college fest was aided by the eye-catching decorations and the presence of food  and commercial stalls on campus.

The college associations, which are a total of 37 in number, hosted various events on all the three days. The main attractions included Indian and Western music, Indian and Western dance, The Rotaract Talent Show, The Amazing MCC Race, IT Gyaan, Quick Fashion and Personality among others.

A number of art, literary and dramatics events were held. This include creative writing (in various languages), haiku and limerick, debate, tattoo and mask making, photo essay and DC. A ‘Freshie Football’ league was also held. First Innings would not have been complete without the crowning of MCC’s Freshie Queen 2009.

This coveted title was won by Gayatri of I PyEC, who impressed the audience with her wit and poise.

The fest ended with the Freshers’ Party, which saw the girls dancing to the fabulous music of DJ Lloyd’s team comprising DJ Deep and DJ Andre.
