Exceptional talents come to fore

APS College of Commerce recently celebrated their ‘Talents Day’, where there was non-stop excitement, unplugged creativity and healthy competition among the participants.

   There were a host of events and the students participated in them all, rather enthusiastically. Metrolife interacted with a few students, who shared their experiences of participating in the fest.   

Anisha Anand, a final year MCom student, who took part in group dance said, “This year, the programmes are far more interesting than the previous years.” 

The fashion was loud and colourful, with themes like Bollywood, Jodha Akbhar and ‘Casual’ among others. Anisha felt these themes gave students a chance to exploit their creativity. “Among all the programmes, the fashion show was the most interesting,” she added. Hoping her team would be one of the winners, Anisha stated, “If we win here, we will get a chance to represent the college at other college competitions and fests.”

 Until last year, the competition was open only to undergraduate students but this year, the post-graduate students have also been invited to participate. Anisha, who has been taking part in the talent hunt for the last few years, said, “What I noticed this year is that the students are taking the competition very seriously.”  
The students, who have been busy juggling academics and extra-curricular activities, found it difficult to find time to practice.
 Priyanka U, who participated in solo and group dance, said, “We started practising only a few days prior to the competition. For all the last minute practice we did, I must say that the show went off well.”
Pallavi Gowda, who participated in the group dance, said, “There has been a lot of anticipation for the event. We are really excited and hope that we win, especially since we didn’t find that the competition very intense.” However, Mahalakshmi, a BCom student who took part in the fashion show and anchored the first day of the programme, felt that the competition wasn’t up to the mark. 

Mukunda Nayak, associate professor of Commerce, said that getting a large group together, was a new experience. “The programme was much better than last year. The coming together of undergraduate and post graduate students was a new experience,” he said.
