A range of colours and competitions


It was an energetic and fun-filled week for the students of information science of the Dayananda Sagar Institutions (DSI) as different activities including ‘Ethnic Day’ were held in the campus recently.

The students took part in many fun-filled events like arm wrestling, poster making, rangoli competition, mehendi competition and ‘JAM’ (just a minute) among others. They were all excited about the opportunity to mingle with each other and take a break from their packed schedule. The events ended with the ‘Ethnic Day’ celebrations. Most students welcomed the activities with cheer. Sanketh, a second-year student, said that he found the arm-wrestling event challenging. “It was a different and fun event. It was also a challenging experience as my competitor was equally fit,” he saidKritica Sinha, a second-year student who dressed up in a sari for the ‘Ethnic Day’, said that it was the best outfit. She commented, “Apart from being the typical Indian wear for women, a sari is something that every women wants to be seen in.” Kritica also took part in the arm-wrestling event. Ashwini GD, a second-year student who took part in dumb charades, said that it was a challenging exercise. “Without saying a word, we had to act out the names of various films. Absolutely no clues were given,” she said. Ashwini explained that there were different rounds of eliminations for the teams and all were competitive.

As part of the ‘Ethnic Day’, dances, games and fashion show were also held. Talking about the ‘Ethnic Day’, Najam, a final-year student who also coordinated the fashion show, said, “Since this is my last year in college, the event was emotional and touching for me. It felt nice to be showcasing the beauty of our culture. I only wish that time wouldn’t pass by this fast.”

Speaking on his experience of being named ‘Mr Ethnic’, Sunil Kumar Dani, a fourth-year student, said, “Since this is my final year, it was one of my most memorable moments. My friends were extremely supportive and I enjoyed every moment of the event,” he said. Sunil added that walking the ramp and introducing oneself in an innovative way were some of the biggest challenges he faced.
