We bring to you all the action from the annual fests of DU’s Jesus and Mary College and Amity University.

JMC’s Montage 2011
As the name of the festival suggests, Montage 2011 — the annual fest of Jesus and Mary College — presented a true montage of various performing and non-performing arts. Day 1 of the fest saw competitions ranging from Indian dance, photography, debate, western dance to T-shirt designing and rangoli-making. Spotlight, the English dramatics competition — was won by Hindu College, while Ramjas College was declared the runners-up. The day ended with a lot of fun and frolic as the DJ played popular numbers, such as Munni Badnaam and Sheila Ki Jawani, among others. Madrgal, the western music competition and the choreography competition Mudra, among other events, marked Day 2 of the festival. Band Groove Adda concluded the fest with their renditions. Budding Bollywood singer, Aditi Singh Sharma thrilled the crowd with her popular numbers, including Dilli from the film No One Killed Jessica.

Amity’s Trends and Aura
Budding managers took on the stage in Amity University’s two fests held back-to-back at the campus. The annual fests, Trends 2011 and Aura 2011 (for the under-graduate courses) was attended by a huge number of students from various colleges. Trends 2011 kickstarted with its Annual Business Summit. The evening began on a musical note with a sufi performance by Chand Nizami of the Nizami Bandu fame. While this was going on, the other end of the campus went high on fashion with a fashion parade, a part of Aura 2011. Split into three rounds — Ethnic, Corporate and Poker Face, 12 couples clad in trendy attires, walked the ramp as the crowd cheered. The festival was wrapped up with an exhilarating performance by singer Kailash Kher, who sang his famous numbers.
