Cultural festivities refresh students

The Raja Rajeshwari College of Engineering at Kumbalgodu celebrated its college day recently. Vibrant cultural performances and fun-filled competition for students and lecturers marked the occasion. A C Shanmugam, Chairman, R R Group of Institutions, who was the chief guest, gave away prizes to winners of different competitions, which were held throughout the year.

Several on and off-stage events like cookery contest, rangoli, mad ads and group dances provided fun for the students, amidst the exam fever. Only students, who won prizes in cultural events in intra and inter-collegiate competitions, performed on the occasion.
Yogesh and team from the Mechanical Department performed a group dance to contemporary fusion songs while Ranjini and team presented a dance which highlighted the different stages of a student’s life, right from nursery to the colourful college days. They mesmerised the crowd with their performance to songs from Taare Zameen Par, Bachna Ae Haseeno and 3 Idiots.

Solo dance performances by Yogesh and Siril to songs from Arya 2 and Thriller were mindblowing. The most enjoyed event of the day was Rahul’s solo performance for the song Hrudaya Samudra Kalaki, sung by Dr Rajkumar for the film Ashwamedha. Rahul’s tireless performance and creative composition turned out be an absolute delight for the audience.  Suma K R from the Computer Science Department performed Bharatanatyam and displayed her mastery over the art by demonstrating some complex and difficult movements.

A mad ad featured by the students of mechanical department advertised a banana-flavoured cool drink called DSCD. The show was great and the team members enthralled the crowd with their excellent oratory skills. A cookery contest called Cookery without Fire tested the culinary skills of participants who had to prepare ideal dishes for summer. Anita and Smitha, faculty members of the Computer Science Department, clinched the first prize for their curd fruit salad.

“Students are under exam pressure. So, we planned these refreshing events to ease their burden. While lecturers also took part in the competitions, students were even more enthusiastic and involved themselves in the events completely,” said Dr D K Venkatalaxmi, cultural secretary of RRCE.
