After an action packed first day, day 2 of Shruti, the annual cultural fest of Indraprastha College for Women hosted several exciting events and competitions. The fest came to an end with an EDM night by DJ Aditya after much fanfare.

Taboo, the event organised by Oghma-The English Editorial Society saw 13 teams compete in the first round. Each team was given 7  general words with some Taboo-ed words. They had to make their partner guess the words without speaking out the Taboo words. The round saw lots of funny explanations and answers, and the event kept the fun element alive. 7 teams qualified to the second round and 4 to the third. The final two rounds raised the difficulty level as the participants had to guess names of specific characters, words and books with very constricting rules. In the end, three teams emerged victorious; First position went to Lavanya and Minal, Second to Shaonlee and Avani, and Third to Samira and Panya. There were participants from colleges like IIT-Delhi and St. Stephen’s College as well.

The Eco club along with the NSS of the college, organised a newspaper dressing competition. 16 teams across all colleges of DU participated actively and creatively in the competition. The competition saw creativity at its best, what with a number of teams opting to design a gown or a cocktail dress out of the newspapers, while one of them opted for a south-Indian traditional costume. One team made a costume of a prince from the eighteenth century Britain. Zakir Hussain College (Morning) bagged the first prize with their cocktail dress replete with frills, while IP college won the second prize for the look designed with the dress, and all accessories from footwear to bouquet to tiara. Third prize went to Sri Venkateswara College for the costume of a prince.

Hindi Debating society held a competition on the topic, “Inspite of the advancement of various means of effective expression and communication, there has been a degradation in the quality of effective expression.” Everyone talked about how effective communication is one which reaches the receiver, is understood by them and then their feedback is taken. Another unusual point discussed was how effective communication brought about a change in Nirbhaya case!
