Talent blooms at all corners

Talent blooms at all corners

Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College (BCWCC) recently held its cultural fest ‘Disha 2013’. Held for the last 16 years, the fest has been getting bigger and better.

And this time too, it was celebrated with pomp and show. The two-day fest had the theme of ‘Global Graffiti – Around the world in two days’. All the events incorporated the theme and a few also included it in their names. Della Moda for the fashion show, ‘Coiffure’ for hair styling, Halla Bol for poster making and Khazane-ki-khoj for the IT treasure hunt reflected this. There was also a graffiti corner and stalls selling global cuisine.

The garden and classrooms were buzzing with activities, as students from various colleges in the City like Indian Academy, SSMRV, NMKRV, Bishop Cotton Academy, Christ University and Al Ameen College participated in a variety of events. Some of these were mad ads, light music, international dance, battle of the bands, street play, collage, RJing and beat-boxing among others.

Vijayshri, the fest coordinator, informs that participation has been on the rise over the last few years. “The response this year was much more than we expected. The fact that we introduced online registration might be the reason for this,” she says.

About the challenges faced in putting the fest together, she adds, “Sponsorship was a challenge as usual but we managed to work around the limitations. Time management was also quite tough but we did our best to ensure that everything started and ended on time.”

Vishwadha, a non-participating visitor to the fest, was impressed with the turnout. “One can see a lot of talent at college fests these days. Plus, it’s a good platform for people to know the overall standard. I came here to cheer for my friends but was inspired to participate,” she adds.

Participants were seen preparing for upcoming events.

Some looked nervous while the others appeared confident. Amandeep Singh, a
participant from Baldwin Methodist College, was content with the experience. “I came here to participate in the western dance competition and it was fun. People were supportive and everybody was talented. I would like to return next year,” he says.
The overall winners were Christ University and the host college emerged runners-up.
