Go green this fest season

Go green this fest season

It is celebration time in Delhi University (DU) as all the colleges have started their annual fests. One of the colleges, Miranda House also organised a ‘star night’ featuring the famous Bollywood singer Arijit Singh.

The theme of Miranda House Tempest festival this year ‘Shades of Green’ – bears a special affinity to Lotus Greens' core beliefs and set of values, which are intrinsically linked to sustainable models of development in real estate.

Sponsored by Lotus Greens, ‘Shades of Green’ aimes to spread awareness on sustainability and idea of three vital Rs’ – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The three vitals were utilised in all aspects of the fest from campus decorations to the events. Even the invites for the fest were handmade and delivered to all the colleges with a sapling each.
The Miranda House festival which ended over the weekend was a perfect union of fun, cross-college student activity and cultural programmes.

Keeping sustainability in mind, old coffee cups were collected from around the campus, along with plastic bottles, newspapers, scrap cloths and other related stuff and  used in artworks for the annual fest.

The Environment Society of the college – ‘Vatavaran’, also hosted a play on bio-diversity and put up an exhibition featuring the ‘best-out-of-waste’.  There were other popular crowd-pullers like the exhibition showing ways to set up a composting plant in your home garden, and a workshop  on the basics of paper recycling.

A noteworthy and innovative idea was the ‘trash-to-cash’ activity, wherein waste material was given by the college to specially-abled people, who spent time and put efforts to create wonderful pieces of art and craft, which was sold by them on the campus during the festival.

Devanshi Lall, vice president of the College Student Union said, “We are proud to practise what we believe in. The world needs engagement of this kind to spread the message about eco-conservation and create awareness.”

But, the highlight of the fest was surely Arijit Singh, whose presence almost created a stampede-like situation during his performance on the fest’s first day. “The crowd actually went mad and it kept on swelling because of the singer. There was a gatecrash like situation, but eventually we managed to pull off everything quite well.

He sang all his hit numbers, from Kyuki tum hi ho, Kabhi jo badal barse and also Pehela nasha,” said another student, Shaily Jha, a Ist year Geography (H) student. The second day also saw a performance by the Bandish Band, which mesmerised the student gathering with their hits.
