The annual fest of Janki Devi Memorial College (JDMC) - Symphony - was all about fun-filled activities such as face painting and rangoli-making contests. The fest featured JDMC’s annual competitive events - Let’s Dance (free style solo dance), Munadi (street play), Euphonie (Western music competition) and Footloose (group dance).
The two day festival saw participation from colleges across Delhi University. The most sought after event of the festival was the rock show, which saw a performance by singer Harshdeep Kaur, who entertained the audience with her hit numbers such as Katiya Karoon from Rockstar and Jhak Maarke from Desi Boys. “It’s a good place to come together, as college life is a thing you miss your entire life,” says Kaur, who also graduated from an all girls college.
There was some food for thought too, as the inter- college debate competition saw teams from 25 colleges debate on the topic — ‘The huge box office success of bold Indian films indicate a rejection of traditional values by Indian audiences’.
In the freestyle solo dance competition, participants exhibited various styles of dance forms, such as, contemporary, fusion, freestyle and hip-hop.
There was a cause attached with the festivities too. A special event - Turning Disability Into Ability - was held for differently abled students to showcase their singing prowess. It saw participation by students from Indraprastha College for Women, Kirori Mal College, Hansraj College and Hindu College.
