Incredible choices: Girls checking out the jewellery.Making sure that they ended the academic year on a sweet note, the students of St Joseph’s College of Commerce kept chocolates as the theme for their annual cultural fest Dhwani.

They stuck candies on the walls of the college and even created a chocolate waterfall in the campus. 

Abraham, president of the student body, said the students took inspiration from the movie ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’. “We wanted it to be a sweet experience for the participants and that’s why we thought of this theme. All the volunteers put in a huge effort in making the posters, decorating the campus and even creating the waterfall,” he added. 

Spread over two-days, the festival saw an array of events. Singer Vijay Antony, who composed the popular Tamil song Nakka Mukka, inaugurated the fest.
 “The minute he entered, everyone assembled in the auditorium stood on their chairs and started taking pictures. It was great to see him actually sing and dance with some of the students on stage,” said Krishnan, a volunteer.

Like all the cultural fests, this too had its share of Western and classical dance and music and drama. Keeping the theme in mind, there were two new events –– ‘Chocolate Chef’ and ‘Chocolate Painti­ng’. While the first one saw participants trying out their culinary skills, using chocolate as the main ingredient, the other one had students turning creative on the canvas by using chocolate syrup as paint.

One of the popular events was ‘Caption Writing’, wherein participants had to write whacky captions in a given time for pictures displayed through a slide show. ‘Movie Spoof’ also saw a good tur­no­ut. In the evening, the campus took a festive atmosphere wi­th gol guppa stands, jewell­ery stalls and an ice gola stall, which was a real crowd-puller.

Interestingly, the fillers were far more entertaining. From students mimicking well-know actors, dancing to Kolavari Di to breaking out into a quick salsa, there was lot of talent on display. For the first time, Dhwani even saw a fashion show competition, where participants walked the ramp in ethnic clothes. “We decided to conclude the fest with a gala rock show which saw many new college bands like Karma, ‘Clown With A Frown’ and others performing. It was a great line-up of events and we made sure everyone was entertained till the end,” said Abraham.
