With colour and festivity, Don Bosco Institute Of Technology organised its annual techno-cultural fest ‘Vismay 2013’ in the college premises recently.

Staging a dynamic variety of events, the fest was a celebration of youth and talent. The first day saw a burst of energy with different bands showcasing their best at the ‘Battle of the Bands’. The music sent the crowd into a frenzy and the students were head-banging to the beats. The different bands that performed at the fest included Indie rock band ‘Pinch’, blues band ‘Groovy Chutney’, gospel rock band ‘Distorted Melody’, and metal bands like ‘Quarantine’, ‘3/4th gravity’, ‘Kill the Kratos’ and ‘Morph code’.

“Organising the event was a challenging experience, but the audience loved the show and demanded  more. Since there were no genre restrictions, the crowd enjoyed different types of music too,” said the co-ordinator for this event, K Darshan, a final-year student.
The day progressed with a fashion show that amazed the crowd while showcasing the designer’s skills. Nishantha B, the student co-ordinator for this event, commented, “Even though there were only two colleges which took part in the event, the designs shown were outstanding. Each college chose their own themes; one displayed designs in bridal collections and the other showed tribal outfits.”

The second day was more festive with solo, duet, Eastern and Western dances. The colleges which participated in the dance sequences included People’s Education Society Institute of Technology, SJB Institute of Technology, M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Kammavari Sangha Institute of Technology and Dayananda Sagar Institute of Technology.

The fun continued with electrifying performances by two bands.‘Fundametal’, with teenage band members, performed their own compositions and some numbers by ‘Metallica’ and ‘Iron Maiden’. The next performance was by ‘Agam’, which is an Indian Carnatic rock band that played compositions and mantras in Sanskrit.

Sharath Swamy, a student co-ordinator, shared his experience, “It was fun to organise each and every detail of the fest. The schedule was crazy and there were tough decisions to be taken, but the teamwork and co-ordination paid off well.”
