Farooq Abdullah with Principal Hemalatha Reddy

The first day of the annual cultural festival of Sri Venkateswara College kicked off in the morning with the chief guest Farooq Abdullah inaugurating the three day event.

The first in line of events was the Western Dance (Solo) competition,where the participants gladly showed off their moves and panache to the audience. Next in line were a number of events such as Western Vocals, Folk Dance (Group), Indian Classical Dance (Solo).The Street Dance competition grabbed many eyeballs, and Fair Field Institute of Management nudged ahead of the others in a tough face off. The Delhi Quiz conducted by Venky’s quiz society
Conquiztador barraged a sizeable audience with questions pertaining to the past and present of the City of Delhi, with the team of Shubham and Shashank of NSIT and IGNOU emerging the winners.
The theme of Nexus, which celebrates the 100 years of Delhi as the capital was showcased in a number of events such as Rangoli Making and Collage Making. Next in line was the mega event of the day, the performance by Guillotine- the popular band of Delhi University famous for opening the Metallica Concert in Bengaluru. Although the event got off to a delayed start, they left no stone unturned to enthrall the audience with some headbanging music. Funnily enough, the band was so well received that many girls cheered on the Keyboard player Akshat Taneja and Guitarist Takar Nabam and even flocked them for photographs.
Shortly afterwards, the final event of the day, Razamatazz – Western Dance (Group) competition got underway. The show was marked by a number of incidents which included frequent technical issues relating to the audio. Sri Ram College of Commerce had to restart their routine due to the same, but managed to deliver a fine performance. Following them were performances by Khalsa, Gargi, Kirori Mal and others. The finest performance though was given by Hansraj and they were rightly awarded the first position late in the night.Nonetheless, the opening day of the festival saw an excellent turnout which stayed late in the night much to the delight of the participating teams. Apart from a few inevitable snags, Nexus 2012 is truly underway.Stay tuned to DU Beat’s Facebook page for the live updates of Day 2 and the pictures and videos from Day 1.

Unlike my colleagues I’m not the one who writes an article with intrinsic details and ornate wordings. Being an economics student, I’ve learnt to do my work with perfection, in a simple yet immaculate manner. Although I’ve read the usual Dan Brown and Jackie Collin publications I am quite literally at loss of words when people around me start discussing the new bestseller by John Grisham or so. Not surprisingly then my favorite book is ‘David Beckham’s autobiography- My Side. Owner to the fancy title of ‘Sports Editor’ of DU Beat, I try to bring out my passion and enthusiasm in my work. Being a Manchester United fan (I can see you frown), my favorite quote is by none other than Captain fantastic Roy Keane: “Fail to prepare, Prepare to fail”.
