Surana Degree College celebrated its annual day ‘Parva 2014’ with much festivity at its campus recently.
The event, which included colourful cultural programmes by the students, was a grand success.
Students, who excelled in academics and other activities, received prizes from Pawan Kumar, director of ‘Lifu-ishtene’ and ‘Lucia’, who was the guest for the occasion.
He also addressed the youth by saying that the students shouldn’t miss out on college life.
The events that were held included folk, fusion, classical and free-style dances along with a fashion show.
Prateek Khurana, a second-year student, who was one of the hosts for the show, said that it was fun to present the programme to the students.
“I had a co-host with me and we worked on the script together. We had auditions before the programme and that’s how we both were selected for it.
The programme was very entertaining and the fashion show was remarkable,” said Prateek.
He added that the challenging, yet interesting part, was to infuse comedy into each programme.
Sanchit Satish, a final-year degree student who was also one of the organisers, said that he had been in the organising committee since three years and it wasn’t something new to him.
“This year, we focussed on getting more of the juniors involved. We tried and included more of the first-year and the second-year students into the programmes so that they would be able to handle the events next year,” said Sanchit.
Other students were amazed by events like the Patta Kunitha presentation and a retro Kannada performance.
“There was a perfect balance between the traditional performances and other events.
There were also vibrant performances like Bollywood-style dancing, ‘Mad Ads’ and a fashion show which entertained the audience,” said Sindhu Prakash, a final-year student.
She also added that unlike most annual days, there was a bigger turnout this year. “Since this is our last year in college, the event also made us nostalgic,” she said.
