The inter-collegiate science fest ‘Oxfoignite’, saw students from more than 20 colleges across the City participating. Interesting events like ‘sudoku’, ‘best out of waste’, face-painting, fashion show, group dance, essay writing, debate etc attracted many participants. The campus was buzzing with energy and students could be seen putting last-minute touches for the final rounds of various events.

“Students from colleges like Kristu Jayanti, ALT, Acharya institutions etc participated. Since different kinds of events were incorporated in the fest, everyone was able to participate. We had a good balance of cultural programmes and events based on our subjects. We hope that we are able to raise the standard of the fest next year,” says Chandini, a student.

While some could be seen putting up their points and brain-storming for the debate, many others could be seen applying their creativity at the face-painting competition. However, the maximum participation was for the fashion show.

   Students came up with innovative ideas for it. Dressed in bright colours, participants walked the ramp with confidence and style.

Reny, a final-year student, says that the show saw some very creative outfits. “We had a good crowd for the fashion show. Students from various colleges came up with unique designs,” she notes.

Students point out that it was they who had taken the responsibility of the fest and were glad that it got such response.

   “We divided ourselves into small groups and each group was given a certain task. We had set targets and most groups were able to achieve those goals. The best part about the fest was that it was open to people from all backgrounds and was not restricted to  science students. Events like face-painting and fashion show were appreciated by students who wanted to showcase their creativity. We also had a very interesting debate on various topics. Next year, we would like to include more events in the fest and would also want more students to be part of the fest,” says Arpit, a student.

It was not just the participants from other colleges, who were applauded for their talents and ideas, the home team also presented a commendable show.
