Putting up a great show

Putting up a great show


The students of Reva Group of Educational Institutions organised ‘Revamp ’14’ recently. The three-day national-level techno-cultural, sporting and management extravaganza had thousands of students taking part from colleges across the country. 

Some of the technical events included paper presentation, circuit debugging, 3D modelling and technical quiz. 
While the cultural events included fashion show, group dance, battle of bands, beat boxing, mad ads and street dance, the management category had events like case study, business plan, business quiz, video ad and paper presentation. 

In the sports category, the events included throwball, basketball, football and volleyball. 

The highlights of the show were live performances by Agnee, ‘Junkyard Groove’ and 
‘Campus Roadiez’. 
Cyril Mac Philip, a final-year computer science engineering student who was part of the organising committee, said, “We have got a number of events under one roof in order to cater to everyone’s interests. We are overwhelmed by the response we have got especially for ‘Campus Roadiez’. We had 100 students auditioning for the preliminaries.” 

He added, “The fest is even more special this year as this is the tenth year of the university.”

Prior to the fest, the students performed street plays on issues like the right to vote and distributed tags on the importance of not drinking and driving. 

They also collected old books and distributed them to the poor. 

Final-year student Aditi felt that it was the fashion show that garnered large numbers. 

“I’ve been part of the fest for the last four years and am really nostalgic about this one since it is my last year here. It has been a good break from academics and putting this fest together has been a good learning experience,” she said. 
Pointing out the challenges of putting the event together, Srijith, a final-year student, said, “This is clearly one of the best shows we have put up. But getting sponsors was a tough task.” He added, “Even managing the crowd was a task. If last year’s crowd was good, this year’s was brilliant.” 

“The fest was very professional. The place was buzzing with energy and the events were well-organised. It’s the first time that I am taking part in the fest and it’s been a wonderful experience,” said Lohir, a student.
