One of the many things that make the University of Delhi happening and enchanting is the performing arts societies and their marvelous annual productions. In the past few months, we saw cut-throat competition across several Delhi University colleges. The hours and hours of practice and hard work were put to test this fest season and from amongst the pool of massive talent, some groups emerged brighter than the others. We attempt to select the best society of the lot.
The best college society in each category was selected by creating a tally of the top 3 positions that could be won at various events. The society that secured the 1st position was awarded 3 points, the society that secured the 2nd position was awarded 2 points, and finally, the society securing the 3rd position was awarded 1 point.
Nineteen college fests were referred to while evaluating the top societies tally this fest season. They were: SGGSCC, Maitreyi College, Hindu College, Lady Irwin College, Kamala Nehru College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Bhim Rao Ambedkar College, Sri Aurobindo College (Morning as well as Evening), Shyama Prasad Mukherji College, Kalindi College, Bharati College, Shivaji College, Ramanujan College, Lakshmibai College, Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences for Women, Dyal Singh College, Satyawati College, and Daulat Ram College. Colleges that were not affiliated to DU were not included in the tally.
The Top Three
At the top position is I VOGUE, the fashion society of Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce with a total of 18 points. Poise of the Institute of Home Economics is at the second spot. Galore of Maitreyi College are at the third spot. Nakshatra of Hindu College surprisingly established itself as a strong competition and came fourth with 12 points.

The Winning Society at a glance
I VOGUE has established itself as the top fashion society for a long time now. With their dark-colored structured clothes, clear messaging, and awe-inspiring props and surprise elements, they have remained the favorite of both the crowd and the critics. Speaking about this year’s annual production, Chayan Jain, the President of the winning society, said, “This year we dedicated our performance to a call for humanity. We wanted to shed light on the irrelevant differences that we as a society are a constant prey to; namely gender differences, caste discrimination, and the religious segmentation. The theme this year was named “A Walk Towards Humanity” was entirely a team effort without any outside help. Be it the choreography, designing, modeling, hairstyling, or conceptual ideas, we have all done this ourselves. We owe our success to each and every member of the society who did every task with full dedication. It warms our hearts to see all our hard work paying off it.”
