Day 2 at Tarang – A day full of surprises

  1. The Stand-up comic Abish Mathew won over the LSR centric audience with his charming ways and inside jokes about cats, our complete dependence on Balbir ‘dabbang’ Bhaiya for crisis of all kind and gave the women some precious insight to the working of the supposedly ‘one track’ male psyche.
  2. The Principal planted an affectionate peck on the cheek of Monsieur Mathew at the end of the performance on the pretext of ‘doing what every girl in the auditorium wanted to’ and stole the show (as always), leaving the recipient of the said peck in a state of visible disbelief.
  3. An armada of XY chromosome was noted to be gravitating towards the quizzing event. Sometimes stopping on their way to ask the directions to the Upper Seminar Room with the hesitance that only a seemingly intimidating same sex institution can fill in one in a shy yet polite manner.
  4. Vinay Bhushan, a character reminiscent of Shahrukh Khan’s portrayal of Surinder Sahni in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in his blatant simplicity had the audience rooting for him since the very first scene where he brushes his teeth on stage. Post his performance in the KMC production ‘The Line’, an enthusiastic fan was shocked to discover that the actor’s accented English was a part of the act and words like ‘chiterr’ (sic) were not a part of his off stage vocabulary.
  5. The audience at Yavnika – the Stage Theatre event was an extremely temperamental one, rushing out to only to re-enter (with food hidden inside their bags) every time the doors of the auditorium were opened after a performance.
  6. The English Debating Society was spotted practicing their dancing skills at the registration desk while waiting for participants to stream in. Watching the President of the Society learn the steps to ‘subah hone na de’ with so much sincerity while simultaneously mouthing the words was the only thing that kept the NSS volunteers helping with Tarang Security entertained.
  7. It was interesting to see people purchasing earrings, eating Chinese food and test driving a Tata Nano in the same venue.
  8. The flash mob may not have been a total surprise but +10 points for the choice of the single ladies sound track. One could safely say that the strict security measures and the exclusivity of the passes ensure that the ladies of this college remain single forevermore, for the boys who do manage to make their way into the campus ‘if you like it then you should put a ring on it.’Pragya Lal
