Pleasing to eyes and ears

Pleasing to eyes and ears

Many emotions

The final year students were happy to be graduating soon but were also sad to leave the campus which shaped their dreams. The juniors were highly enthusiastic in entertaining the outgoing students.

The events were meant to enthrall the crowd and to showcase the best talents in the campus. Cultural teams, which had won prizes in various inter-collegiate events, performed once again.

‘Mayuri’, one of the dance clubs in the college, comprising Nisarga, Ashwini, Apoorva, Meghana and Shubha, performed the South Indian folk dance Karagattam in a spectacular manner.

They received thunderous applause from the crowd for their power-packed performance. ‘Mad Ads’ teams of the campus like ‘Syntax Errors’, ‘Humour Injected Virus’ (HIV) and Bindassagi Nagu Maga (BNM) took the occasion to enact funny incidents from their college lives. Their skits also offered some suggestions to the management.

The prime event of the day was ‘BNM Idol’, an event inspired by music reality shows. It comprised three rounds and around 40 students had registered their names for this competition.

In the first round, the contestant sang film songs to karaoke music. The second round was meant for duet songs.  The three finalists — Guruprasad, Menaka and Kruthika — appeared for the last round, which was ‘Judge’s Choice’.

Kruthika Raghunath from the Telecommunication Department clinched the title with the audience’s vote.  A dance performance with no expressions by the final year girls, which captured the mood of outgoing batch, also garnered much appreciation.

“This is the last cultural meet of this academic year. Last year, I had won the ‘BNM Idol’. So this year, I could not take part in it. I sang ‘Mitwa’ from Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna to bid adieu to my seniors. I am also thankful to this institution for recognising and nurturing my singing talent. This year, I got an opportunity to sing in the movie Kirataka for V Manohar.

I have one more year in the college. I hope to get much more exposure in the coming days with the support of my friends and college,” says Krishna T V, a third year student and a budding singer.
