‘Saptak’- The eastern classical music solo competition was organised by Samranjini (the music society of Gargi College) during the ongoing fest of Gargi College, Reverie 2015.

The event saw a participation of around 19 talented singers from different colleges of the university as well as colleges from outside Delhi. Songs like ‘Lal meri pat rkhiyo bala jhoolelal’ and ‘Sun charkha di mithi chuk’ with their beautiful melodies enthralled the audiences. Even the judges seemed to like the performances put up by the young singers.

Dr. Deepika Chatterji, who is also the teacher convener of Gargi’s music society, had a different point of view,”Participants sung beautifully but some of them were out of the sura (tune).”
