Getting to know each other

Light Moments

The event began with an invocation song sung by two students of II PUC, as well as scripture readings by the students, including excerpts from the Bhagavad Gita, the Bible, the Koran and Buddhist scripture.

The college anthem was sung as well, and a few senior students shared some of their memorable moments in the college.

The students of II PUC then took the stage, performing a series of dazzling dances and musical numbers.

The cultural programme began with a classical dance performance by Raveena, who also brought in some slightly more modern moves to entice the crowd.

A group of girls also performed a medley of movie songs that included the popular song Maiyya Maiyya and the Telugu hit Ringa Ringa.

Faisal Ahmed, another student, delivered a poignant rendition of the Bollywood song Pee Loon, and Vignesh dazzled the audience with a solo break-dancing number to Timberland’s ‘The Way I Are’. The college band then took the stage and sang several popular songs like ‘Zombie’ by the Cranberries.

The show then progressed to the talent hunt, that was meant exclusively for the freshers. It comprised several rounds, including a round where the students were expected to introduce themselves, one in which they were asked to speak impromptu on a certain topic and one in which they had to showcase their individual talents.

Several freshers, keen to display their skills in front of the entire college, took part in the programme. Karan dazzled the crowd with a moonwalk while another performer danced to the popular Usher song ‘Yeah’. There were musical performances as well. This included a performance by Banu Priya, who sang a song from the movie ‘Sanju Weds Geeta’ and Vimal, who sang ‘There’s a Place in Your Heart’. These were received very well by the crowd.

The fresher who received the most applause, however, was Sundereshan, who sang a modified version of Queen’s ‘I Want to Break Free’, called ‘I am a Malayali’. The good-humoured references to meen curry and spending time in the Gulf had the audience in splits throughout his performance.

Shane, another fresher, impressed the crowd by performing a series of riffs on the guitar. Rahul diverted from the usual music and dance numbers by presenting a short mono-act. The programme also included a round wherein the freshers were handed out slips of paper with topics, and asked to give impromptu reactions to them. The topics, such as ‘If the world were to end tomorrow, what would you do today?’, were light-hearted and varied, and the freshers had a wonderful time responding to them in front of their seniors.
