Aimed at giving a break from monotony and providing a platform to talent, the 3-day event encompasses culture and fun events for students. 'Moksha' has been one of the most awaited college festivals. Unlike the previous event this time owing a bit to the city at the completion of its 100 years, the college gave a theme named – “Celebrating the Spirit of Delhi” where the whole college was decorated as per the theme. Each block was divided and named after famous monuments like India Gate, Lotus Temple and Qutub Minar with the virtual demonstration in the form of hand made monuments art. Shrey Bansiwal, student of NSIT said, “We are celebrating the 10th year of our cultural fest at the completion of its 100 years of Delhi, so this year we have tried to denote the progress of Delhi in the form of division of blocks and renaming them with Delhi monuments, the whole idea is to make the whole college look like mini Delhi.”

NSIT gave the fest an enthusiastic start by performing on different numbers followed by an array of mega events such as “Rouge” Fashion show, The Choreography- Mudra and dramatics including Nukkad natak  throughout the day. It also included fun and informal events like Bulls eye, paint the song and egg art.

The fest also gave the students an opportunity to showcase their intellect in quiz events like Cricket Quiz and Indian Quiz. The second day was marked by mega events like the Oorja-Western Dance competition. Leaving an ever-lasting impression of the festival on the minds of students the best of all was Fahrenheit - the pop night, where the well-known singer KK belted out some of his finest numbers.

The third day was full of enthusiasm and competitive attitude where the students from different colleges took part in Lord of the Street dance. Avalanche - the battles of bands promises to become, in times to come, the best rock show in colleges, if the sampler this year was anything to go by. With rock bands  God's Bench, Poltergeist, Claustrophobic Expansion, Dementia India, Uncertainty Principle and Scythus performing the whole night to the students’ delight, the fun of the day simply trebled at night.

The students from different colleges were as excited as those of NSIT. Sakshi Rana from Bhaskar Acharya, a II year student said, “All the events were held on a large scale. There were unique events, especially ‘paint the song’ where one had to paint whatever came to mind while listening to a song! Other than this how can we forget KK’s concert. I think everyone had a blast throughout the fest.”

Other than the sheer plethora of events from musical performances to dance, debates to quizzes, literary, cultural and informal events, special hospitality arrangements were done keeping in mind the theme ‘The Spirit of Delhi’. A stall named ‘Bhukkad’ had the best of Delhi food and delicacies.

Flushed with the success of the fest, Neha, a II year student and one of the organisers of NSIT said that “it was meant to churn out the skills of students in a fun and entertaining manner. Around 50 colleges from all over Delhi like SRCC,  Miranda, Hindu College, Hansraj College, Amity International, Maritime Institute etc participated in the fest, and it was great success.”
