On the last day of the Bennett University mega college fest, Uphoria x Zenevia was taken over by the soulful voice of Jubin Nautiyal. He began with “Tu hi aana” and then dedicated his ‘Kinna sona’ version to all the ladies in the audience. There was not a single dull moment as he captured the audience’s attention from the get-go.
He took both the students and the teachers on a trip down memory lane with his retro numbers. To bring a change in the mood and uplift the crowd, Jubin sang “Aaj ki raat” a song from the movie ‘Don. The students were seen crying, smiling, laughing with him. He serenaded the audience with his last song for the night, ‘Dil galti kar baitha’, just the right fit for to conclude the fest.
Emotional fashion walk
Day 3 of the fest began with a ramp walk with students’ using their outfits to express their emotions. Second runner-up of Miss India 2022 Shanita Chauhan and fashion designer Charu Parasher were the judges. “Best part of college is the energy that the students bring in. The creativity of the event is amazing. The students in their performance reflected the emotions as per the theme of the event and I loved it. The fashion show felt like a theatre performance,” said Chauhan. "It was so amazing to see that the youth of today has so many aspirations and it is reflected in the performances," Parashar said.
Maitri College won the event while Zakir Hussain came in second followed by Amity University and Hindu College.
Monologues and more
Abhinay, a monologue competition saw some of the best mono acts the university students had seen.
"I saw someone in a market, I talked to her, she somehow thought of me as her safe space and told me that she was a victim of marital rape. I took that as inspiration for my act," Prerna Goyal, the winner from Technia Institute of Advanced Studies, said. Archi Agrawal from Dr Akhilesh Das Gupta Institute of Technology and Management (ADGITM) bagged the 2nd position for her portrayal of emotions while Akshit Khanna from Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College, was the second runner-up.
To test the students’ knowledge of films, the University’s movie club organised a trivia competition, Samosa with Sunset. The competition had 12 teams and each team took a bite off a samosa for every right answer. The fest ended with ‘Mock CID’ a murder-mystery event that tested both the physical and mental strength of students, ‘Unchartered’ a treasure hunt mixed with photography skills and
‘Picasso,’ with students capturing not just photos, but emotions, stories, and aesthetics.
