Mohammed Irfan drew the curtains to Tempest’17 as he serenaded the crowds with his hit numbers like Baarishein and Fir Mohabbat. He did not limit his performance to his own songs. The audience seemed thoroughly involved as he made his performance more interactive by dedicating songs to the Principal of Miranda House, the Faculty members as well as the audience.
The much awaited Tempest 2017 lived up to its expectations. A student of Miranda House, in a conversation with DU Beat said, “ This academic session had been very busy for the college. It was very impressive how the union managed the resources efficiently and blessed us with a very good fest this year”
