The RA Podar College of Commerce and Economics presents its latest inter-collegiate cultural festival, Enigma Reprise 2010, backed by the artists’ guild of the college from November 23 until November 26. This year, the festival has been enhanced by the addition of ‘Hruturang’ and ‘Rostrum Spectrum’ as more specialised arenas for students.
Hruturang caters to preserving our deep-rooted folk culture, and the events will showcase folk dances, music and literature. It is backed up by the Marathi Literary Circle of the college in a bid to illustrate the beauty of Marathi and also other folk cultures in India. Rostrum Spectrum is a special wing endorsing excellence in literary fields. An amazing line of events has been designed by the team for thorough brainstorming amidst all the participating colleges.
Enigma Reprise covers a varied range of events throughout the four days ranging from sports to literary and performing arts to the key Jackpot events. The highlights for the festival are the rappelling event and the street plays based on social issues. Events such as Mr & Ms Enigma and street dance do a good job of pulling the crowds.
The main aim of this cultural festival is to give a platform to young talent and take them to a level where they go beyond their fears and give them a more sporting outlook towards life. The Principal of RA Podar College, Dr Shobana Vasudevan, has been greatly supportive of the endeavour.
As the Vice Principal and teacher-in-charge for the cultural forum, Neelima Salankurkar, too, has seen to the smooth organisation of the festival. Also, the institution has Dharmesh Jain, chairman of the Nirmal Group of Companies on board to sponsor the event. Jain is a Podar alumnus and has also been the General Secretary of the college 20 years ago.
The current cultural secretary of Podar, Rohit Dube, says, “We are looking forward to the event as it has been designed to help students carve a niche for themselves and experiment with their abilities. It will definitely make you want to explore your talents.”
Added marketing and PR head Shweta Jain, “From completely new events to old ones, Enigma is bound to keep you entertained throughout whether or not you are a participant!”
