Delhi University’s Sri Venkateswara College themed its annual fest — Nexus — on gender sensitivity. The three-day affair, held last week, saw different colleges across the Capital competing in several inter-college events.
Highlights of day one were the street play competition and
Razzmatazz — western dance (group) contest, which saw participation from 16 and 12 teams respectively. Also on display was the folk dance (group + solo) contest, where four groups and two participants competed.
Day two saw five bands battling it out in the battle of bands, face painting contest, western dance (solo) and choreography. The six teams participating in the choreography competition based their acts on different themes. While the team from Hindu College used the theme of blind faith, the host team presented their act on the theme — vanity, no apologies.
The fest also saw The Garage Act — a theatre competition, organised for the first time by the college. Held over the span of two days, it saw six stage plays in Hindi and English.
The last day saw a musical act by the Nizami Brothers. But the highlight was the performance by the band, Pentagram, who, with music composer Vishal Dadlani, ensured that the fest closed on a grand note.
