College fests provide for one of the escapes from the rigmarole of boring classes and homework assignments for many students.
Remember the excitement of the first day in college, the fresher‘s party and ultimate welcome in NSIT with Resonance? While the second, third and fourth years fondly reminisce the old memories, the current batch of first years did not get a chance to attend such a fest this year.
The cancellation of Resonanz (Intra cultural college festival) motivated the students of Ramanujan Hostel (If you are wondering what is Ramanujan??, BH 4 has been renamed as Ramanujan Hostel) to organize a cultural festival in their own hostel.
Although the cultural programmes such as dance performances on Bollywood numbers, western dance and bhangra by the first year students formed the crux of this event, the major attraction of the event remained the Rain Dance. The event was graced by Dr. Raj Senani, Director, Dr M P S Bhatia, Dean Student Welfare, faculty members and several alumni.
The ‘Ramanujan Award’ was also presented to the students who had scored more than 95% in Mathematics in the first year. The eligibility criterion for the award was extended to the non hostellers on the suggestion of the Director and a separate event was organized in the mini auditorium for the distribution of the prizes. The event was a huge hit among the first years and compensated for the absence of Resonanz in the first semester. Milan will surely give the first year students fond memories to cherish during the later years of their college life.
