Dr BR Ambedkar Medical College recently hosted its annual inter-collegiate three-day fest titled ‘Synapse 2013’. 

   The fest saw more than 3,000 students participating in full strength. Dr B R Ambedkar Medical College stood first and St John’s Medical College bagged the second place.
Medical students, like many others, usually don’t have too much time to stand and stare and academically, they are packed with projects and assignments throughout the year. However, these doctors-to-be took time off from work to explore their creative side. 
It was three days of non-stop fun and action on the campus. Held under the theme, ‘Celebrating The Art Of Cinema’, on the occasion of 100 years of Indian Cinema, the students danced to filmi tunes in the group and solo dance categories and even debated and discussed various aspects of cinema among other topics during the debate competition. 
The rock show also had something cinematic to offer. The crowd swelled for the rock concert by the music band Divine Raaga on day one. 

Day two opened with the solo and group singing competitions in both Indian and western music categories. The quiz did well to get the students thinking on various topics. 
The highlight of the second day was the fashion show, where the students got a chance to showcase their work. There was a rush of colour on stage and one got to see some very funky designs. 
There were a few other events such as face painting, T-shirt painting, pencil sketches and rangoli competitions that attracted good participation from the student community. 
Day three had solo and group dances, wherein the students grooved to some peppy numbers. 

The street dance and the flash mob act registered the maximum participation. 

Naseer, who coordinated the event, not only dubbed it as a learning experience but also said, “It was a kaleidoscope of all cultural events and we thoroughly enjoyed it.” 

The students thought that the fest did well to bring out their hidden talents. “More than winning, I think what mattered to most students was keeping the spirit of participation high. The cheering and hooting only got louder with every event,” said Rohit, another student of APS College. Avinash, a student, who participated in a host of events thought that fest offered some delicious food and great music. “It seemed like the perfect place to unwind with friends,” noted Avinash. The fest was also an effort to raise funds and create awareness about tuberculosis. The celebrations ended with a DJ night.
