February may have fewest days but in Apeejay Stya University they are all full of excitement and major happenings. ‘The college fest’ is just around the corner and the preparations have started to kick in but the road to the mega event passes through the talent hunt. If the fest is the movie the talent hunt acts as an exciting trailer.
The buzz of the talent hunt could be easily felt in the air days before the dates for the competition were even announced. The students had been preparing for their performances for a long time while for some it’s a never-ending process. Those who came up short the previous year wanted to cross the finish line and for the newcomers, it was a chance to earn a name for themselves. The yearly event lived up to its expectation as there was no dearth of talent and was on full display as some spectacular performances left the audience in complete awe and shock.
The event organised by the ‘Panache club’ responsible for the caretaking and organising cultural activities did a great job of putting together the whole event. The inaugural ceremony of lighting the lamp was conducted by the vice chancellor, Dr S.K. Salwan who also inspired the students through his speech.
The number of participation for the competition increased double fold from the previous year and so did the level of performances. Overall it provided for a good and competitive showcasing of various talented performances. The events ranged from Singing, dancing, ramp walk and on the spot photography.
The winner of the dance competition Supreet Aneja, a second-year student of Journalism and Mass communication was not even sure about taking part three days before the competition and felt lot of nerves as she said “there are so many good dancers so I just decided to stick to my forte which is Indian dance and the goal was to just give a good performance. A win was never in the mind so I was taken aback when my name was announced but I’m feeling really happy right now”
The whole event was conducted flawlessly without any interruptions and the highlight of the show was the students modelling which had everyone standing on their toes.
