Soaking in the spirit

Soaking in the spirit

Students of electronics and electrical department of Global Academy of Technology organised Hysteresis Photon, a department fest, on the campus recently. More than 900 students from all the batches took part in the two-day event.

As part of the fest, 31 different events were held under technical, non-cultural and cultural categories. Under the technical events, paper presentation, quiz, ex-tempo, group discussion, stress interview and other events were held.

 Antakshari, short film-making, photography, fashion show, dance and singing competitions were held as part of the cultural programmes. Non-cultural events included face-painting, collage-making, cooking without fire etc. The students had organised outdoor events too for both boys and girls.

Girls took part in events like tug-of-war, lagori, while boys participated in cricket, basketball and volleyball. This time, the students came up with a different event to make the fest colourful — pot-breaking. The concept was based on dahi handi, a popular sport played during Krishna Janmashtami festival celebrations. Students formed different groups to break pots in the competition. 

The event turned out to be an unexpected hit, said, Abhay, member of the organising committee. He added, “It was fun to be part of such a huge show but at the same time, it was very hectic. When 900 students are involved, it is tough to control the crowd. Usually, so many students don’t take part in a department fest. We never expected such a huge crowd. We had printed only 300 tickets initially. By the time the fest approached, we had printed the tickets twice and finally, we had to give away photocopies of the tickets and sell them. The ticket prices varied from fest to fest.” 

Nithin, a student who took part in the event, said, “Taking part in the college fests is always fun for us. There were various kinds of programmes for all the students. The whole idea was to get the entire college to participate in the events. Final-year students organised the event very well and that’s worth taking note of. All the events came out according to the plan, and like in every fest, cultural programmes were a hit among students. Everybody enjoyed the dance performances. It is good to know that the students’ efforts were appreciated by all.”
