The intra-college fest, organised by the students of Oxford College of Science, was an eye-opener in many ways. It saw participants from different streams showcasing their talents and prowess in various fields. Clearly, it was nothing short of a platform to explore and hone the skills of students.

Students of Oxford College of Management, Arts and Law actively participated in the fest, which had events like ‘Cooking Without Fire’, creative writing, ‘Best Out of Waste’, face painting, computer games, ‘Need for Speed’ Antakshari, solo and group dances, group song and flower arrangement.

‘Cooking Without Fire’ was one of the popular events and it had students competing with each other to churn out the most delicious dishes. The result was a wide-variety of lip-smacking desserts, sweets, salads, juices etc. This competition attracted the most number of entries.

Madhu, a first-year MSc student, who participated in ‘Cooking Without Fire’ and Antakashari, says, “I had a lot of fun cooking. My team and I made stuffed tomato, musk melon and orange juice and soups.

We had made dishes which had low calorific value and were high in proteins and vitamins. It was a great experience and we understood the concept of team work,” she says.

The youthful festival could not have been complete without cultural events. Students enthralled the audience completely with solo dance and contemporary Bollywood group dance. The talented bunch made all the students shake a leg to the peppy numbers.

Badrinath, one of the teachers, informs that the response was very good and it was a good break for students.

“Many students turned up at the fest and the registrations for all events were pretty high. Considering the response we got this year, we are planning to organise more such fests in the future,” he adds.

Bindu, a second-year B Sc student, participated in the collage-making competition and tried to portray a strong message through it.

“The collage that my team made was based on waste disposal. This issue has been troubling Bangaloreans for a while now and we wanted to send a message that citizens need to be conscious about the right way of disposing of their garbage. Participating in the fest was a great experience, I hope more such fests are organised in the future, it refreshes us,” she notes.

While the students worked with all their enthusiasm for the fest, they also learnt skills such as time management, planning and teamwork. With stimulated confidence, they were eager to organise more such events.
