Hard work bears fruit

Hard work bears fruit

Jain University brought together talents from various colleges at ‘Elina 1.0’, the cultural fest, recently. The fest saw the combined efforts of management, commerce and animation departments and the coming together of nearly 15 colleges. The events ranged from literary to cultural, and the students participated in competitions like quiz, group dance and music, photography and face painting.

Students waited eagerly for the chief guest, actor Sriimurali, who vowed them with his speech.

“I feel gratified to be a part of this vibrant student community. Education is very important for every individual’s career growth. You need to work hard to carve a niche for yourself in the corporate world. On the other hand, I also believe that you need to seek cultural activities to develop your hobbies and skills.”

He won the goodwill of the students by pointing out the need to create a healthy environment for female students, and prevent crimes committed against women.

 He urged students to be clear in their views and go for their goals. The students performed a special ‘Pooja Kunitha’ dance for him, which was brilliantly choreographed and set to rhythmic music. The ‘Fashion Parade’ was truly the showstopper with students modelling dresses for the theme, ‘100 years of Indian Cinema’. It showcased Raj Kapoor and Nargis, the opulent Jodha Akbar costumes and the more recent ‘Ram Leela’.

Jeevan Kaushik, a participant, said, “I like being a part of inter-collegiate competitions because they help me see the various talented people from other colleges. I felt extremely happy being a part of this event. It gave me a chance to explore my talent in singing.”

Sowmya R, dressed in an opulent sari for the fashion show, said, “It feels great to pay homage to our film industry, and I have always been interested in fashion shows. From choosing the music to selecting the costumes, it was a lot of hard work.”
Adarsh Institute of Management and Information Technology was ultimately crowned winners for their outstanding performance. This cultural event gave students a chance to explore their capabilities and a forum to exhibit their talents.
