<![CDATA[Amidst the quirkiness exuded by the campus of this well laid out college, the vibrant second day of Reverie 2013 commenced at Gargi with enthrallment and exuberance. The fest kick started with a myriad of competitions being held alongside, and giving any of them a miss gave rise to sighs of pity from the audience. A cheery applause greeted the street play competition, which was host to a volley of excellent ideas and synergetic performances. While Hansraj College bagged the first position, PGDAV took away the second prize with their extremely sensitizing and valiant performance highlighting the importance of sex education. The third prize was awarded to Gargi College, who performed to spread awareness about the cruelty meted out to animals by humans-the ‘evolved’ apes. ‘Mudra’, the Indian Classical Dance Competition invited some scintillating solo performances that touched base with our divine culture. While Anjali from Gargi College was awarded the first position, Kritika from Miranda House and Surya from Dyal Singh College were declared the first and second Runners -up respectively. The Conventional Debate that took place witnessed a thunderous exchange of ideas on the abstract topic given to the participants, ‘This house will bend over’. The debate saw a display of innovative and brilliant interpretations on this open-ended theme. The first prize was awarded to Kamala Nehru College and the second prize was received by Gargi College. The best speaker was declared to be Abhishek from Deshbandhu College. Amongst the other events, the Indian and Western music competition and ‘Overacting’ were a treat to the audiences. At the Western Music group competition, the first prize was bagged by Lady Shri Ram College for their scintillating performance of a jazz piece, titled ‘It don’t mean a thing’. This was followed by Jesus and Mary College and Gargi College, who stood second and third respectively. The first prize at the Indian Music group competition was also bagged by Lady Shri Ram College. Gargi College also hosted the battle of the bands. Ten professional bands competed to win the prize. This year, the ten bands who participated were Krvya, Freewill, Trackpots, Alibi, Heisenberg, Addicthead, Ebonix, The Centaur, Dark Moon Eternity and Conundrum. There was no particular genre of music that the bands played, but most of them were rock or metal bands. The competition was judged by Gaurav Balani, bassist for the band Parikrama, and Rajarshri Sayal from the band Faridkot. The winners were Trackpots, the second prize was awarded to Freewill and the third prize was a tie between Alibi and Heisenberg.

I would bask in utmost happiness with the littlest of joys like rain or music, but it’s often difficult to assuage my will for more.
