FIR: Fest In Review Moksha 2017

By Perez Yeptho, Batch of 2019 Only a month back, we at The Alliance were with a heavy heart contemplating the creation of an obituary section in our edition, with Moksha being the very first entry in the column.

It is annually set in the Moksha ground (that unruly area behind ICE block, which stretches into wild nothingness? Yes, that!). The land is transmuted into the sets of…
