Getting attuned to campus life

The Cul Week was scheduled during the class hours and students were given a three-hour break from their classes to participate and watch the events.

“The idea is to get as many students to come and participate. That academics cannot be compromised is another thing that is told to the students,” says Divya, lecturer Department of Chemistry.

Events such as Indian and Western dance (both solo and group) saw the students explore various themes. Their colourful costumes, elaborate hairdos and loud make-up said a great deal about their enthusiasm to participate. The cultural events such as fashion show, dance and music drew more participation than the other events such as creative writing, elocution, debate and the other more formal events.

The fashion show had two teams – team A had the girls dressed in white shirts and blue denim jeans. Team B gave the girls more freedom to dress in funky and colourful outfits such as short pants, hats and scarves.

The fashion show lacked in variety. Even the choreography was average. “We thought there would be more clothes. The choreography should have been more colourful. Fashion shows at MCC are generally good but this time it came across as dull,” says Sahana, a first year arts student.

Street dance was another rage with the students. The girls had all formed their individual teams. “We break into dance irrespective of the place. It calls for a lot of energy and you have to be quick with your movements. There’s a lot of improvisation that goes on during the performance,” says Andrea D Souza, a second year science student.

A popular radio station launched a contest to select fresh faces. The students were expected to come on stage and do their own thing such as dance, sing or even do a short skit. This was another thing that was popular with the
students.
