<![CDATA[One of the starting events of the day at Gargi College was the Folk Dance competition. Various DU teams took to the stage, which had been given a colourful makeover. The event opened with the Gargi Philosophy Department’s dance performance that was a combination of Mohini Aatam, Oddisi and many more dance forms. Some of the crowds’ favourite performances in Folk Dance were Gidda by Mata Sundari College (the team came second in the competition), Laavni by the team from Jesus and Mary College, Bhangra by Kamla Nehru College, among a few others. While the Laavni performance brought to stage a hint of the Konkan coast, IP College performed Kalbelia that was also enjoyed by the crowd. Venky on the other hand disappointed slightly with a rather lax approach to the dance form of Daandiya. The competition saw Bhangra performances by the dozen but all were performed very vivaciously by the teams, and the crowd was pleased by the live Dhol beats and singing alongside. The Dramatics competition saw five colleges perform various plays. Ramjas College staged “Saints and Sinners”, CBS staged “The Accidental Death of an Anarchist”, Bhagat Singh College staged “I am Hamlet”, Gargi College staged “Make-up” and Kirori Mal College staged “Threesome with Simone”. The auditorium was packed during all the plays, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The college that took the cake was Ramjas, which came first, and Kirori Mal came in the second position. Students of both Kirori Mal and Ramjas bagged the prize for Best Actor. Best Director was declared to be from Ramjas. Congratulations to the winners! Anugrah Gopinath and Shreya Mudgil]]>
