The Winning Society at a Glance

Siddhartha Bedi, Vice President of Hansraj Dramatics Society, spoke with DU Beat-“What we achieved this year has been such a dream come true for all of us, especially for the outgoing batch. The achievements and the positions are all wonderful, but the kind of love that the circuit has showered upon us this year has been beyond phenomenal. If I had to credit the success to anyone, it would obviously be the team in itself. I don’t think we would’ve been able to accomplish even half as much as we did, without us all giving in our blood(sometimes literally) and sweat, our days and our nights to the society. Hansraj will always only grow with such passionate and fanatical members at the helm of it! Go Hansraj!”
