Fun and frolic all around

The campus of New Horizon College of Engineering was buzzing with excitement recently during ‘Sargam ’13.

The theme of the annual two-day cultural fest was ‘carnival’ and around 10,000 students from 150 colleges attended the event on the first day itself. The days were filled with several entertaining events, including beat-boxing, a treasure hunt, short-movie making, street dance, mime and mock rock among others. Two new additions this year included Bappa Morya and ‘switch foot’.

The campus was teeming with students, who were seen preparing for various competitions to ensure that they showcased their talents perfectly. The group dance attracted large numbers and the crowd had a great time swaying to peppy Bollywood songs. “Although I’m not into dancing myself, I enjoy watching stage shows.

But I do feel that this event was better last year,” said Srujaha, a PU student. Although a bit nervous, the participating teams were confident of winning. “The competition is stiff. Hence, we have been practising whenever we got time. I hope all the hard work pays off,” said Suprita Shenoy, a student of Presidency College.

Saif Ahmed, a fourth-year BE student of New Horizon College of Engineering, has been working for months to put together the grand fest along with his team. He said, “It has been a challenge to put together this event. There have been a lot of ups and downs we have had to face but at the end of it all, it’s been a rewarding experience.”

Thamees Ahmed and Yashwanth, also been part of the co-ordinating group, said, “We started preparing three months ago. Although communicating and co-ordinating with people has been really challenging, we have gotten to know many of our batchmates better.” Yashwanth added, “We are sure that the students will be inspired to put in their best efforts — especially since the prize is big.”

Highlighting the fact that it was a complete student initiative, Anitha S Rai , lecturer co-ordinator of the fest, said, “The event is by the students and for the students. We have provided the resources and support. The registration this year is more than last year.”
