The colours of spectrum

Annual fest

vibrant A dance number in progress.

Classes are suspended for almost a week and the students gather in groups and begin rehearsing for the big day. It is said that this fest also attracts most students to join this institution. 

As part of the fests, on and off stage events were held last week. The off stage events included pencil sketching, pot painting, vegetable carving, cooking without fire, face painting and bridal make-up. The students came up with various themes such as nature, funky styles and other random topics.

“We really freaked out with colours. There’s so much creative stuff you can do with nature as the theme. I worked around the theme of conservation so my work was just as bright and beautiful,” said Lakshmi, a participant. Another set of students came up with some creative bridal make-up. “There’s a lot of stuff you get to see in magazines and on television. Bridal make-up is a huge thing now and people don’t mind spending a lot on looking good on the big day,” said Sahana, another participant.

Dr T Somasekhar, Chairman of Indian Academy Group of Institutions, didn’t think twice before encouraging the students and directing his faculty to provide maximum support to the students.  

This fest has not less than 20 events covering almost all spheres such as fashion, music, dance...The college also has a sizeable number of international students on campus. “Every year we host an International Student’s Day where the expat students come dressed in their traditional outfit and even during the fest they are at their creative best,” said K S Sreeraj, vice principal of the Academy. 

The maximum participation at this year’s fest was from the final year students who wanted to make the best of their last year in college. Soujanya K, a fifth semester B Com student normally doesn’t take part in more than one event but this year she participated in almost all the events and won either the second or the third place. “This is my last year and I wanted to be part of as many events as possible.

So I worked really hard and I am glad I participated. It makes me feel good,” she said.
The fashion show had several themes and impressive among them were the party, retro, king and queen. Soujanya and her team came up with two themes — Scene at the airport and reconstruction. “The airport scene was complete with airhostesses,  people and pilots. And we also collected old clothes and cut them out in a creative way to resemble something new,” she said. 

The other events were dance (both Indian and non Indian), singing (both Indian and non Indian), mime, mad ads and Western band.
