Challenging concepts evoke interest


Maharani Lakshmi Ammanni College for Women (MLACW) held its inter-collegiate fest, ‘Ingenia 2014’, at its campus recently. Students from the host college and other colleges, who took part in the fest, were excited about the experience.

Competitions like face-painting, solo dances and group dances, hair styling, ‘mad ads’, beat boxing, nail painting were held as part of the three-day fest. The highlight of the fest was the fashion show, which saw innovative designs and confident students walking the ramp.

Sandalwood actor Yogi was one of the guests at the event and he danced with students on a song from his latest movie ‘Darling’.

 Prabhu, a final-year B Com student from Indian Academy Degree College, who took part in the ‘mad ads’ and  group dance, said that the fest had exceeded his expectations.

“I assumed that the fest would be much smaller but there was a good competitive crowd. The coordinators were also very friendly and helped the students with everything,” he said. Prabhu also added that the ‘mad ads’ was a challenging event.
Innovative events like face-panting also received much appreciation.

Manzoor A, a BCA student from Kristu Jayanti, painted on the theme ‘world peace’. “It was challenging to paint on a face and not all my colour combinations came out well, but I scored marks on my explanation of the concept. It was a tough competition,” said Manzoor.

Other noticeable events of the fest were the fashion show, the energetic ‘beat-boxing’ competition and the exclusive ‘Miss Ammanni’ competition which was held for the MLACW’s students.

Kajal Jain, a student of SRM Adarsh College, who walked the ramp, said that the theme ‘Vampires’ was fun and a challenging concept to work on. “Our eight-member-team practised for two days and we tried our best to stand out in the competition. Our main colours for the clothes were white, black and red. It was nice to see that the judges weren’t partial,” she said.

The beat-boxing event also saw enthusiastic participation. Anand Kumar, a student from Indian Academy Degree College, said that despite the crowd not being so energetic, the competitions were good.

“I got a chance to meet all the friends I had made at last year’s event. So it was more like a reunion rather than just a competition. I tried basic stunts with a personal twist at the event,” commented Anand.

The ‘Miss Ammanni’ event, which was exclusively held for the MLACW students, was a welcome relief for the hosts. Shruthi, a final-year
student of the college, who was a runner-up at the event, said the competition was tough.

    “I have walked the ramp and taken part in many talent shows. But I was still nervous. The question rounds were
really tough,” she said.
