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 Folk Dance category, Nrityakriti of Maitreyi College scored the maximum points in the tally. Nrityakriti’s 12 points were followed by Nrityangana, Sri Venkateswara College that scored 10 points. Bhangra Group of SGND Khalsa College bagged third spot scoring 7 points.

Nrityakriti, Maitreyi College
This year, Nrityakriti presented an amalgamation of Haryanvi Folk Dance which managed to capture the hearts of spectators and jury alike. Their performance was widely applauded at different dance events which eventually led them to emerge as the top society.
The President of the Society, Akshi Sangra, shares the success mantra with us, “For a highly committed and dedicated team, there is no such thing as failure. If we fall 10 times, it is 10 lessons learnt. Our success mantra is nothing special. We just work hard and try our best to achieve our group goals. We have been very lucky to have Sanjay sir as our teacher and mentor as well. Apart from this, Nrityakriti is known for adjusting in adverse situations. It’s one of the things which makes us succeed in what we do. Doesn’t matter how slow you go as long as you don’t stop.”
