A whirlwind of activity

The fun and enthusiasm of the students of PESIT, South Campus, was pretty evident during their two-day techno-cultural fest Maaya.

The fest had various events, which saw participation from various colleges across the City.

Day one saw events like ‘Beg Borrow Steal’, ‘Bingo’, golgappa-eating and chilli-eating competitions, ‘Picture Treasure Hunt’ and ‘Scenario Shock’.

There were also technical events like coding, an online treasure hunt, CS and NFS (which are gaming events), ‘Junkyard Wars’ as well as street cricket, street football, creative writing, group singing, contemporary dance, a fashion show, solo dance and Maaya Idol.

The second day had events like antakashari, western dance, ‘Battle of Bands’, street dance, ‘Mock Rock’ and ‘Slow Drag’.

The students were excited and busy organising the events. The juniors lent a helping hand as well. “Organising the fest has been a lot of fun. It has been done entirely by the students.

We divided the students into groups and each group was given a responsibility. We directed the juniors and showed them what to do. Everything went off well,” says Ashik, a final-year student.

The campus was buzzing with activities — while the hunt for the Maaya idol was taking place on the main stage, the quadrangle was jam-packed with students taking part in a paper-dance competition.

 “We have several programmes spread throughout the campus. The response has been very good as colleges like Christ College and BMSCE have taken part. Since it has a mix of both technical as well cultural events, participants from various colleges around the City have taken part in it,” adds Siddharth, another student.

The second day was the most awaited as a couple of bands were performing on campus. “We had planned the rock show long back and invited some bands to play at our fest.

Rock concerts are always fun — we have the maximum amount of people visiting our campus during the rock show,” says Rakesh, a second-year student. He adds that the fashion shows are also huge crowd-pullers.

The students admit that planning the fest was a learning experience.

“We tried targeting new sponsors this time and got a good response. This whole experience helped us in more ways than one as we learnt things about how to manage events on a large scale,” sums up Amritha, a first-year student.
