<![CDATA[As the fest season is coming at its peak in Delhi University , students and societies all over the university seem to be biting their nails over fest dates clashing each other. The current events calendar, jam packed with events and competitions from every corner of the university and catering to every aspect of academics, arts and sports poses one big question of how and where to participate. The solution however is different from person to person. Some are just trying to make most of the fest season and seem to participate in maximum events possible, rushing from one venue to another. “If it’s geographically possible, we switch from one college to another for our performance. We have to try and convince other teams to exchange time slots with us so we can perform at multiple venues.” says Ifra Hussain, a member of the street play society of CBS. “Moving props between the venues is the most difficult task” she adds.
If exchanging team slots doesn’t work, the last resort is contacting the event head and begging them to change the performance timings. If this doesn’t work (which in most cases it doesn’t) then deliberate delaying is a mechanism known to many.People involved in theater, music and dance seem to be the most affected by these clashes. Preliminary events at one fest and a performance at another fest on the same day has become a common thing to witness. Others however don’t seem so keen on hurrying from one place to another. “I just choose the best event from a bunch and go and attend it” says Nidhi Panchal, an English student from Dyal Singh College. The best events according to her would be the ones which are ‘executed and presented properly’. Proximity also plays a big factor. “Just choose a place where you have the best shot at winning” she further adds. Despite the numerous difficulties, we hope everyone stays enthusiastic about the fest season and we wish them good luck.]]>
