Colourful costumes, enthusiastic crowd and musical renditions marked the first day of Gargi College’s annual college fest Reverie 2011. The day started with a sufiana Qawwali performance by Nizami brothers, which enthralled the audience.

This was followed by intercollege street play, western and classical singing and dancing, rangoli-making and choreography competitions. Gargi College won the first prize in the group folk dance category for their Rajasthani dance. Kamala Nehru College and Dayal Singh College (Evening) performed Gidda and Bhangra, which won them the second and third prize respectively. Lady Sri Ram College bagged the first prize in classical singing.

“Music and dance have always been the major attractions of our fest, but this time, we included street play competition to have the youth’s perspective on current social issues,” says Saudamini Ali Khan, organiser of the fest.

The second day of the fest saw a Haasya Kavi Sammelan, followed by a performance by popular Bollywood singer Mohit Chauhan.
