With the Delhi University ‘mocks’ finally over, it is an ideal time for the students to take a well-deserved break from their monotonous schedule of seemingly endless studies
Students can enjoy and refresh themselves as the three day festival of Indraprastha College, Shruti â€“ The Ethereal Song, is around the corner. “To be celebrated on the 31st January and the 1st and 2nd February, Shruti will provide a plethora of exciting and fun-filled events, just at the right timeâ€?, says Aditi Kothari, the General Secretary of the Indraprastha College Studentsâ€™ Union.
Meenu Verma, the President of the Studentsâ€™ Union observes, â€œOwing to the sad demise of our Principal, Dr. Aruna Sitesh in November, last year, the festival had to be postponed to January-February, 2008â€?. It seems as though in spite of controversies and tragedies, IP is determined to keep its spirit alive. Eager students are seen queuing up to collect passes for their friends from other colleges.
While the Sufi Music Ceremony and the much awaited Jam Session are scheduled to happen on the first day, the highlights of the second day include the Quiz and the Street play, the Music and the Western Dance competitions. And to prove that last is not the least, but sometimes quite the best, the final day of the fest boasts of a highly anticipated and live performance by the Aryans (apart from a milieu of other colourful events).
With everything else in place, how can the food-stalls be left behind? Due arrangements have been made to provide economical, multi-cuisine meals for the gastronomically inclined. It will surely be a food-lovers delight!
Shruti promises to be a wonderful fest – An opportunity to relax and unwind.
