Nostalgic moments

Kronos 09, an evening of fashion and dance involving students from the past and the present took place on the grounds of St Joseph’s College of Commerce.

The programme covered dances choreographed and performed by the students; a fashion show showcasing the creations of city designer Ramesh Dembla. The much anticipated highlight was a special showstopper by model Jackie Shetty.

“Although none of the young lads or ladies were professional models, we were able to rope in the services of professionals like Ramesh Dembla and Veena Bhat, who put in a lot of effort and time helping to bring the show to fruition even though they are not from this college.

This was an event created to raise money for deserving poor students and to fund activities of the student council,” said Pooja, a past student and one of the co-ordinators.

The large grounds were filled with students and members from various batches who were cheering their buddies on the stage as they went through their different routines that ranged from Indian and Western dances, a spell of beat boxing (where performers mimic the sound of musical instruments with their mouths and vocal chords) and a series of fashion sequences. The two emcees, Atul and Jason, kept up a spate of spirited banter with the crowd right through the evening.

The clothes were smart, wearable and stylish. They ranged from cocktail dresses with flowing cuts and tasteful embellishments, to dressy kurtis teamed up with jeans and narrow trousers.

The men wore richly embroidered sherwanis that were elegantly formal, and tees worn with jeans and waistcoats for the smart casual look.

In spite of a few scattered drops of rain giving the organisers some anxious moments, nothing really dampened the spirit of the crowd as they loudly cheered the participants on.

A surprise factor of the evening was Ramesh Sadhwani, who conducted an impromptu Walk for College leading the Principal Fr. Daniel, onto the stage, who sportingly took a walk down the ramp followed by members of the alumni from different batches.
