The annual cultural fest of the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, Oasis 2016, kicked off on 19 October 2016 with an inauguration ceremony. The ceremony began on a musical note with the college band performing for the packed auditorium. The band also received a shoutout from Amish Tripathi, the guest of honour for this year’s fest.

The organising committee was introduced, and the work of the art department was especially praised in reference to the giant panels all around the auditorium. The Vice Chancellor of the institute addressed the audience with his opening speech, and congratulated the organising committee for putting together such a grand fest. Next, Amish Tripathi gave a brief message, expressing his appreciation for the event.

They also prseented an act with ultra violet lighting. This was followed by a powerful performance by the dance club, depicting the Mahabharata as well as a western dance performance.

The day will be concluded with a talk from Amish Tripathi as well as closing remarks.

With such an energetic start to the fest, we are looking forward to a truly fantastic four-day event!
