‘Art Mela’ at NLSIU

The Cultural and Fine Arts Committee, NLSIU celebrated its first event of the academic session with Art Mela and Mad Ads recently.

Art Mela, which comprised painting and sketching, face painting, toe painting, clay modelling, rangoli and mehendi, is an initiative taken up by the committee to promote fine arts in the college. Armed with paints, charts, clays, colours, brushes, a blaring sound system and songs, the members of Cul Comm welcomed its students for the event at the campus’ quadrangle.

The turnout was impressive, with the first years showing a lot of enthusiasm and talent. The fifth years, who were having class when the event started, requested for extension of the event timing and then later on turned out in huge numbers. With splashes of colours everywhere and creative ideas floating around, there were a lot of ‘oohhs!’ and 'wowwss!' as people discussed their ‘art’.

Amidst this, at the quadrangle itself, students queued up for Mad Ads. Teams mocked Law School students and prevailing political scenarios, all in good humour. However, a show is not a show unless there is some drama! Two young boys from the second year, decided to throw their weight around and walked out of the event. They eventually did realise that the angry young man tactic only works in Bollywood movies and apologised to the organisers afterwards. The judges, who were invited from Mount Carmel College and Jyoti Nivas College, enjoyed the show as well. All in all, the event was a success and was followed by the much-awaited Quad Party!

Freshers’ Day
Krishna Reddy, HOD of Academics addressed the gathering followed by Dinesh Nilkant, Head of the Centre for Management Studies (CMS), who spoke on balancing studies and extracurricular activities.

The CMS conducted several rounds to test the business and communication skills of the freshers. Some of the major rounds were Business Quiz, Best Manager, Marketing and Finance. There were also colourful cultural events like singing, solo dance and skits.

The soulful renditions by the participants added extra zing to the atmosphere. The CMS music band, Fake Plastic People set the stage on fire by their rocking performance. Manant, the chief manager of the fest team, was the lead singer. The rapport between the seniors and the freshers was evident when the seniors supported the freshers right from playing the side instruments to setting up the stage.

The finale of the Freshers’ Day saw the announcement of the Best Manager. The shortlisted candidates were put through a gruelling test of management skills. Dipika, a first year BBM student found the programme overwhelming. First year BBM student, Pooja said, “Nothing could be better. For me, this was the ultimate Freshers’ Day.”
