Rendezvous 2015, IIT-Delhi: Back with a bang

IIT Delhi kick-started with its cultural annual fest, Rendezvous 2015 on 16th October. Creating a stir in every college goer’s heart, it surely is one of the best college fests of the country. With its grandeur and charm mounting up each year, it never fails to ensorcells the visitors. Thousands of students from various colleges of the country come up each year, after months of toiling and preps to showcase their talent. Boasting of the lush green campus, IIT Delhi hosted the event in an appreciable manner taking into account even the minutest of details. The management of the event was quite well done.

Moreover, a plethora of events were organised along with many informal on-the-spot competitions like ‘Rendezvous got Talent’ and ‘Burp-Golgappa’. The pro night was the highlight on both days. Keeping up with the legacy, the footfall was impressive. There were many food stalls and also other activities like, Personalised Merchandise, Tarot card reader, Art Exhibition and also a cute little Japanese theme based café has been set up (do give it a shot!).

Day 1 began with the Startup Expo Launch and the prelimps of different competitions like, the Stage Play, Street Play and Group Dance. Day 2 started off with the fusion band competition ‘Tatva’. Other events for the day were, Street Play, Street Dance, Stage Play, Quiz ‘Biztech’ and rock band competition ‘Blitzkreig’. Moreover there was a ‘Mr. and Miss Rendezvous’ contest.
