A memorable cultural extravaganza for all

PES Institute of Technology, South Campus held its inter-collegiate technical and cultural fest, Maaya 13, recently.

Complete with celebrity performances, a rock show, plenty of fun events for
everyone and great prizes, the fest was a memorable extravaganza.

   The theme of the fest this year was ‘Cinema — Exploring Entertainment’ to celebrate hundred years of Indian cinema.

 Students from colleges all across the City attended the two-day fest and the fest received a great response from the audience.

One of the major highlights of the fest was the rock show ‘Crossroads’, where bands battled it out to win the title of the best band.

‘Slain’, the progressive rock band, performed alongside a 15-piece choir the ‘Choral Riff’ to create a unique live experience.

The fashion show saw a brilliant blend of flamboyance, style and attitude.

   The students competed for the title of ‘Mr and Miss Maaya’.
The western and Bollywood dances saw some very energetic foot-tapping numbers being presented on the stage. ‘Maaya Idol’, a platform for all the upcoming singers, provided the talented students a chance to showcase their skills.

“The events were divided into several categories — literary, technical, gaming,
management, theatre, cultural and fine arts. There was a team which looked after each event and everyone was given a responsibility. Not only did we receive a great response from the participants, but we also had a huge crowd visiting
the fest,” says Vinay, a student.

   “Every year, we try to do something different in the fest and this year, we thought of doing something innovative with the theme and hence decided to keep Bollywood as the theme. The decor in the auditoriums and the common areas were kept according to the theme,” adds Vinay.

Other events like ‘Mad ads’, street play, bluff master, ‘dumb charades’, general quiz, ‘jam’, coding, online treasure hunt, ‘Junkyard Wars’, face-painting, collage, cooking without fire, group singing, minute to win it, golgappa eating etc were a part of the fest.

Sanjana, another student, informs that the preparation for the fest had been going on for months in advance and the different co-ordinators and teams met on a regular basis to make sure that all the deadlines are met.

“All the students involved in the fest worked very hard and we are happy with the response that we received. Our teachers were there to help us but most of the work was done by the students,” she explains.
