In sync: A group dance. Cresindo 2012’, the annual inter-collegiate fest of Sindhi College, succeeded to make thousands of students showcase their skills in various fields. The two-day cultural fest saw the participation of the students of MS Ramaiah Degree College, Jain University, BMS College for Women, Garden City College, Kristu Jayanthi College, Seshadripuram College, MLA First Grade College, Presidency College and others.

Bhagavadgita elocution, collage, quiz, folk dance, face-painting, rangoli, debate (in Kannada, Hindi and English), solo singing, IT gaming and solo dance were some of the events held on the first day. The second day saw the events like best manager, treasure hunt, battle of bands, painting and sketching, hair do, group dance and fashion show.

Sandalwood actor Raghu Mukherjee was the chief guest for the inaugural function. The model-cum-actor was made to walk the ramp as well. The crowd went crazy the moment he entered the stage and a number of girls cheered for him.

Anushree, one of the organisers, said that the preparations for the fest had started a month before. “All the 60 volunteers divided the work among themselves and worked together as a team. I am happy that this time, our efforts were recognised and we will be getting certificates from the institution,” she said.

The painting and sketching event had 13 participants giving shape to their creativity and imagination. Sudeepto Chakraborty, a first year B Sc student from Garden City College, had shown his concern towards the environment. “I have highlighted the dangers of pollution and cutting trees and the consequences of using plastic. My message through this painting is to do your bit to save the earth,” he said.

Treasure hunt, which was held on early morning of the second day, was a crowd-puller. Around 35 participants took part in the fun-filled game with a lot of enthusiasm. The contestants were asked to find eight clues and three keys to open three treasure boxes.

It was great fun to watch the contestants search for keys in sand at the playground.
Group dance was a big hit among the participants as well as the audience. The crowd went on cheering each team till the end of the competition. The students danced to popular numbers, folk songs and western and classical tunes.

Even the battle of bands received a good response from the crowd when the performers presented some of the popular and their own compositions. The fashion show was conducted as a concluding event wherein the participants walked the ramp showcasing a glitzy collection. They set the stage on fire with their bright outfits and good stage presentation.
