Lively Fest

The four-day-long fest provided the students of the college an opportunity to showcase the best of their talents. After a series of auditions, students were selected to take part in a range of exciting competitions.

Despite the fact that the fest began on a rainy day, the excitement and enthusiasm of the students weren’t dampened in the least. The first two days of the fest revolved around a series of off-stage events. These included diverse competitions like mehendi-designing, and tattoo-making, where students with off-beat interests could come forward and display their creativity.

Along with this, ‘Pick-And Speak’, wherein students had to speak about a subject for a particular amount of time, and a poetry-writing competition were also held. Artistically-inclined students could take part in the flower arrangement, face-painting, vegetable and fruit carving and collage events, as well as the wealth-out-of-waste and pencil sketching competitions. Bridal make-up and ‘cooking without fire’ competitions were also held.

Next up were the on-stage events, which were held on the last two days of the fest. The students, who came to showcase their talents as a part of these competitions, drew a huge crowd, all eager to see their peers prove themselves on stage.

The events included a solo singing competition, instrumental music performance, and plenty of dancing — both cultural as well as conte­mp­orary.

The dancers enthralled the audience with their performances, and had a great time shaking a leg to both racy, upbeat and popular songs as well as traditional pieces. One of the most popular dancers was Fai­zal, a student of II PUC. The on-stage events culminated with a lively rendition of the hit number Why This Kolaveri Di, with all the students in the audience singing and cheering along. The fest ended with ‘Walk The Ramp’, a fashion show that brought together the fashion-sense of the students.

The participants, dressed in their best, took to the ramp and wowed the audience with their catwalk and sense of style. The chairman of the college, T Ekambaram Naidu said, “This annual cultural fest explores, expl­oits and exhibits the hidden talent from the students, and they get a chance to showcase these god-given talents.”
