A carnival-like atmosphere

Students from 28 colleges across the City attended ‘Regalia 2013’, the annual cultural festival of Acharya Bangalore B-School. 

The campus of the college sported a festive look during the programme — students could be seen milling around and interacting with one another. 

A host of events were organised as part of the fest, which ensured that participating students were spoiled for choice.After a brief inauguration ceremony, the logo of the fest was revealed amid much cheering. The competitions kicked off with a lot of gusto and enthusiasm. The popular events includes ‘brain-o-meter’, ‘eureka’, ‘finance mind craft’, ‘finance tycoon’, ‘bio exchange’ and of course, the all-time favourite ‘Pictionary’.In addition to this, there were also events like ‘sci-art’, collage-making, ‘bio-remix’ and ‘bio-crossword’, which were largely organised by the faculty members of the life science wing of the college.

Organisers from the computer science department also pitched in, by putting together a digital poster competition and events like ‘slide wars’, ‘bug sniffing’, blind coding and of course, gaming. The quiz also witnessed large participation — the questions were cleverly prepared and the students had a great time answering them.One of the highlights of  the day was the ‘Regalia Carnival’, a four-hour gala with a variety of cultural programmes. Although it was competitive event, the students focussed more on the fun aspect of putting together the shows. There events included mime, ethnic dance, thematic and non-thematic dance and a fashion show. 

The students dressed in their best, most colourful ethnic attire, and set the stage on fire with their talents.  Raj Kumar, the student  coordinator of the programme, describes ‘Regalia’ as celebration of team spirit, coordination and camaraderie. The international students of the college had a great time as well. Neeliya, who hails from Sri Lanka and helped put the fest together, explains, “As an international student, this was a chance to get to know the Indian culture better — as well as to showcase our culture to the world.”Poonoosamy Rajnissen, a student  from Mauritius, adds, “‘Regalia’ taught me how to lead a team and converge the talents of many to achieve perfection.”DHNS
