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 Western Music category, the Western Music Society (WMS) of LSR scored the maximum points in the tally. Western Music Society of LSR secured a total of 12 points, which was followed by 11 points each of Zephyr (Kamala Nehru College) and Echo (Jesus and Mary College).
