Nobody likes to be in an unknown unfamiliar place which is blaring with noise and vigorous crowd milling around, constantly bumping into someone and getting cursed, unfamiliar faces all around and having no idea where you are. But what if you were one among the herd?
What if you had the chance to spend 4 days with your best buddies milling around a 770 acre ostentatiously decorated campus, with events going on every direction you turn, workshops that you’ve always craved for taking place right in front of your eyes, pro shows that pump up your blood stream and tone up your energy llevel, choreo nite which carves out the dancer in you, and of course the stretch of miscellany food stalls which adds color to your barely alive taste buds, would you go for it?
If you’re thinking yes, then ‘Festember‘ is the place to be!
It is not just the activities that shape up Festember into a once-in-a-lifetime unmissable fest. The secondary reason is the surrounding aura of laughter, PJ’s, excitement and thousands of people from the nook and corner of India coalescing together just for three days to witness these activities which makes it all the more unforgettable.
To a dwell a little deeper into the plethora of activities, Proshows are one of the most anticipated ones. At the dawn of dusk, the crowd hitherto lazily whiling away their time in the food stalls, suddenly evacuate the place which might even trick you into thinking it to be a mass drill of some sort. But i bet you would do the same if you knew legends such as Punya Srinivas, Kadri Gopalnath, Guitar Prasanna, Benny Dayal, etc to state a few are giving one of their awe-inspiring performances. Festember has witnessed a wide range of artists excelling in diverse fields and the 4 days are categorized into Rock night, Classical and Popular night to give you a glimpse of it all. This year being the Golden Jubilee one, wait for some truly spectacular luminaries.
While Proshows are most anticipated, Workshops form the soul of Festember. Simply because they quench the thirst of hundreds of souls who crave to do something beyond their reach, let it be a Pottery workshop or a Party dance workshop. Workshops ensure that the students while thoroughly enjoying it, also get the chance to pursue their inner hidden passion, which might not always be the mainstream and monotonous path of engineering, medical or commerce. Be different.
The backbone of Festember are its Events. With over 50+ events sprawled out in front of you, you will be stuck in a state of dilemma as to which event to pick. The events range from the most eagerly awaited Choreo Nite, to the billingual Tarangini, to Cinematics, to Dramatics, and of course the event which serves a feast to everyone’s eyes- The fashion show. There will be a schedule put up in a huge banner with all the events and timings. From there it’s Sophie’s Choice for you!
Festember is not only known to increase your talent by its Workshops, It is also a platform for you to flaunt your skills. With the innumerable Competitions stacked up, you will find at least one in which you can show your handy work. And with the lits taking place in English, Hindi and Tamil Festember achieves the task of keeping everyone busy. If that isn’t enough to keep you entertained, the Informals sure as hell will do the task. What was the last time you had the chance to be on a Virtual ‘Minute to Win it’ show? Or the last time you played street football just for the sake of it, or galli cricket? All you have to do is let yourself be taken away by the charm of it.
And what makes Festember stand out is the fact that all of this is organized by our very own college students, who work tirelessly for an entire year just so that those 4 days pan out well. And it doesn’t stop there either. Festember while being a cultural fest is not just about the glory, a separate team renowned as ‘Festember Social Responsibility’ undertake the job of taking care of the community with its first it’s first ever drive ‘greEndeavour’ in 2012 turning out to be an enthralling success.
And last but the best, the Gold Dustbin initiative proved to be immensely useful by achieving both the task of getting rid of your old stuff economically and raising money from waste. This is just to let you skim through the book of what this year’s Festember, like every other year, is gonna be. So many things have been squeezed into mere 4 days that it’s a formidable task to choose what you want to. But it’s a task that you’ll love doing.
And with the theme changing every year, this year’s theme ‘Hawaii’ is one which when someone hears, mentally paints a picture of vacations, relaxation and enjoyment. And that’s exactly what you should expect because that’s exactly how this year’s fest-to-remember will be. Don’t miss it cause later you’ll be like..
