Every year, societies from colleges across the campus compete neck to neck and put up spectacular performances during the fest season. This year too, saw certain teams shine a little brighter than the rest. We bring you a series with college societies that put their heart and soul into their respective fields and took home the top prizes at various cultural fests.

The best college society in each category was selected by creating a tally of the top 3 positions at competitive events held during various cultural fests of this season. Whenever a society won the first prize, they were awarded 3 points, for the second position they received 2 points and for the third position, 1 point was added to their tally.

For the fashion category, I Vogue, the Fashion Society of Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce scored the maximum points with their tally being at 6 points. Maitreyi College, Amity University and Hans Raj College followed next with 3 points each and the fashion societies of VNMC, Ramjas College and Dyal Singh College shared the third position with 2 points each.


The Winning Society at a Glance


I VOGUE, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce

Stuck between a modern and a conservative set of minds, we still find a large part of our society to be completely against the idea of people having different sexual preferences, thus compelling many of them to lead a captive life with a constant fear to come out as ‘themselves’. At I Vogue, the team aims to move everyone towards the path of modernity and create such a change where the LGBT community respectfully gets to stand at par in the society and its members to be considered as ‘Humans’ like others. Their act, being a unique fusion of both conservative and modern thinking, therefore brings about Duality as the basic theme emphasizing on the acceptance of the LGBT community, and its costumes are designed according to the modern and ancient era with base colors kept as authentic as black and white along with stunning shades of gold and silver.

Ashwani Verma, President of I Vogue says, “The members of I Vogue start working on everything, three months before the beginning of the fest season with full dedication and perseverance, leaving no stones unturned. Being in a team, we have all learnt to be extremely tolerant of different views and now, not only encourage but even accept each other’s opinions like our very own. I strongly believe that we are mostly led by one, most important mantra, which is to simply ignore ‘I’ in a team and focus on ‘WE’ in every performance; and this, I can proudly say, has been the key to all the victories we have achieved this season.”

Performing Members Ashwani Verma (President), Vasu Goel (Vice President), Sarthak Kathuria, Harsh Kapoor, Divank Satwani, Mohil Jain, Sahib Singh, Ushmeet Kaur, Navneet Kaur, Rivleen Kaur, Harjot Kaur, Reva Goswami, Ashween Kaur, Tavisha Dua and Riya Jain.

[email protected] ; Leading by the quote “Every cloud has a silver lining”, Shagun tends to see the best of every situation and observes mostly what others leave unnoticed. One can find her either under an influence of the darkest corners of psychological thrillers or romanticism of John Green’s beautiful love stories. A writer with a weakness for coffee and petrichor, she blissfully escapes into the world of soulful music while travelling to new destinations or singing when nobody is around. Being a true Delhi-ite, her favorite street food, ranging from spicy aloo chaat to pani puri or sweet hot jalebis to chilled rabdi kulfi, is a love beyond measure.
