Komercio 2016, the two day combined annual commerce festival of four societies of DCAC’s Commerce Association- Club For Leadership, Innovation and Finance, Comania, the Commerce Society, Mercado, the Marketing Society, and Rokda, the Finance and Investment Cell, was held on 17th-18th March 2016. The festival witnessed substantial participation from the students of various colleges across the Delhi University. The first day began with a series of events and competitions like the inaugural session by Mr. Madan Lal, MLA AAP, followed by Navin Gullia a world record holder in adventure sports, Stock-o-holic – Mock Stock in association with Bombay Stock Exchange, and the first of its kind, the Food Triathlon.

The second day began with the most awaited event, EDManiacs, and was followed by 50 shades of Bollywood, the bollywood treasure hunt, and Prom Night. EDManiacs, in association with CLIF, was the first EDM centred competition ever held in Delhi University and provided a perfect platform for true EDM lovers to showcase their skills and dedication to this genre.

The first round of the event was a simple pen-paper round where the students, in teams of two, were given 15 minutes to answer 30 generalized questions regarding DJs and everything surrounding the beat. The shortlisted teams then proceeded to the second round, i.e, Human Shazam whereby sets of 10 songs each were put forth and the contestants were required to identify the correct name of the track. The final round was where the contenders had to go through a series of questions about album covers, logos of various artists, record labels and lastly the HOTS round, Bragging Rights. Anant Kasana and Akshay Dotiyal, from Amity University bagged the first prize. The whole idea of setting up an event like this was brought forward by Sidhantha Jain, an EDM blogger who believes “No matter who you are what you do or wherever you are right now, your passion will take you somewhere nice.”

The English Literary Society of Shri Ram College Of Commerce, will be conducting its three day annual literary festival Zephyr, under the theme ‘Utopia,  from 22nd to 24th February respectively. The first day of this lit fest witnessed substantial participation from different colleges across Delhi University and provided platform for those seeking to apply their creativity diverse forms of literature.

The day started with the first event- Timepan, a creative writing competition, yet with a twist of strategy building and bidding. One had to bear in mind the cost of time to write a piece of fiction (both poetry and prose). It was followed by another event- Newsroom 2.0, a blend of drama a false news reporting and was subsequently judged by the Bazinga team of DU Beat. The teams were given with a fictional headline (like Rahul Gandhi invites Sunny Leone to Congress) and were required to enact this piece of information for ten minutes in the most ingenious way possible. First position was secured by Yashasvi Tak, Bhartendu Verma, Ishita Kishore, Vasu and Avikal Parashari from SRCC for their performance on the topic ‘KRK goes to Hollywood’.

After the events came the most awaited speaker session. Durjoy Dutta, an Indian novelist, screenwriter and entrepreneur, famous for works such as ‘Of Course I Love You’, ‘She Broke Up, I Didn’t!’, ‘Hold My Hand’ and other notable titles, addressed the crowd and bagged their support and appreciation, by his modesty and compassion. He talked about his journey towards fulfilling his dream of becoming a writer, on how he had to quit his job and after sheer hardwork and support from his family, finally found success. He confessed that in his initial few releases, he wrote about his ex-girlfriend, who happens to be an alumnus of SRCC.  On being asked in a Q&A round, he revealed that he hasn’t really tried his hand on Thriller but will surely be working on it in coming years.

The day ended with the second keynote speaker of the day, Ravinder Singh, bestselling author of ‘I Too Had A Love Story’ and ‘Can Love Happen Twice?’. He shared his experiences, answered questions by his fans and also motivated the students to pursue their dreams. “Organising a literary festival in a college is a new experience altogether, as it requires a new perspective and focusing on new concepts. Moreover, the ELS team has put in tremendous efforts this year to make it a success and I’m proud to be a part of such a dedicated team.” said Archita Mittal, Public Relations Head of ELS, SRCC.

The festival witnessed substantial participation, with over 500 students, from various colleges across the Delhi University and provided assistance for those seeking an expressive platform for application of the theoretical knowledge and discussion of the nation’s economic scenario. First day of the festival began with an inaugural lecture by Dr. Jayati Ghosh, Professor of Economics at Jawaharlal Nehru University and the Executive Secretary of International Development Economics Associates, about the topic: ‘India’s youth: Demographic Dividend or Ticking time bomb.’ “We need strategies for changing the growth pattern, it’s not just enough to grow GDP if it doesn’t give us the structural change. We need to be proactive about employment generation, public education and skills development.” said Dr. Ghosh while discussing the problems of unemployment in our nation. Tito in Vegas (a gambling-based situation game), Eco biz quiz and Eco-Mediathon (a blend of economics and journalism), witnessed a huge participation on the first day.

Second day of the festival focused predominantly on debates and discussions through committee simulations. For instance, The European Council reviewing on the economic consequences of the ongoing Refugee Crisis, an advisory board on the Monetary Policy Committee and Narasimha Rao Cabinet discussing the aftermath of the 1991 BOP Crisis. The committee simulations were followed by N C Ray Paper presentation for the research enthusiasts. The highlight of the first day was the event ‘Underground Economy’ which involved facing a world full of criminal mafias, trading drugs, visiting brothels and playing till the moment one was caught by the cops. “It wouldn’t have been half as successful without our seniors, who started working months before the fest. They helped revive the society this year.” said  Dhairya Aggarwal, a second year member of The Economics Society.

Winters, a season when you can be extremely lazy without having to make any excuses. An additional five minutes of sleep in the morning really does matter in winters but there’s a lot you’re missing out on for it. Go out and have fun because it’s the perfect time to gather the golden moments. Here is a list of things everyone needs to do with their friends this winter:

  1. Road Trip To Murthal:
    Let’s admit it—we eat more during the winters. It’s the perfect time to plan a short road trip to Murthal for indulging in the butter loaded stuffed kulchas & parathas on the road side dhabas which are over 50 years old.
  2. Crash A Wedding:
    Delhi is filled with an astounding number of people getting married on specific dates during winter. So go crash a wedding this season because, as cliché as it may sound, memories like these with friends never fade

  3. Throw a Party:
    Nights are best celebrated with music, friends, dance, barbeques and bonfire! If you have open space like a lawn or terrace, winter is the best time put them to good use by throwing a party.
    point 3 (2)
  4. Cycling:
    Good roads, early morning chills and spectacular sights all make Delhi a wonderful place to cycle. Some of the best cycling routes are from India Gate to central ridge, the Mehrauli Gurgaon road and the stretch behind St. Stephens.
  5. Shopping:
    Spend a day shopping with your girl friends, who actually tell you how well the clothes suit you, at exquisite yet pocket-friendly markets in Delhi like Sarojini Nagar, Lajpat Nagar, Delhi Hatt, Janpath and Connaught Place.
  6. Visit unconventional places:
    Every group has that one person who is always looking forward to visit weird and unconventional places. Maybe it’s time to listen to him/her. Some of the most haunted places in Delhi are Agrasen ki Baoli, Delhi Cant, Khooni Darwaza, Zamali Kamali Masjid, Lethiyan Cemetery and Sanjay Van.
    point 6 (2)
  7. Picnics:
    Winter time is picnic time. Why not take a break from the tedious college schedule and spend a day with your friends at a lakeside or a picnic in a beautiful garden? There are many places in and around Delhi that make for ideal picnic spots like the Lodhi Gardens, Damdama Lake, Tulaqabad Fort, The Ridge, Nehru Park, Buddha Gardens and India Gate.
  8. Take a trek:
    Plan a trek with your friends to some of the best trekking places near Delhi like Lansdowne, Benog Tibba Trek, Kalka-Kasauli Trek and Roopkund Trek.

  9. Study:
    This one’s for people like me who hate attending college lectures and assure themselves at the last moment by saying “Yaar next semester mein pakka” . Try improving your college score this semester. Start with attending classes.

The list has been compiled in such a way that they effortlessly sync with almost every outfit and will keep you warm and stylish throughout the season. Buying such staple pieces will mean that you’ll always have something to wear, no matter what is in or out of fashion.




They are perfect for wearing underneath blazers, coats and sweatshirts. A light coloured knit, pair of ripped jeans and black ankle boots is the most classic way of carrying it.

Knitted and woolen gloves can be used on daily college basis to keep your hands warm while leather gloves offers a more sophisticated look. One may also opt for Agloves, which helps in using the touch screen devices. You can shop them from the following link:





Adding a scarf, makes the basic look new and fresh. They are not too pricey, can be used in almost every weather condition and also keep your chest and neck warm during winters. Reasonable quality scarves of different colours and patterns can be shopped from Sarojini-Nagar or Lajpat-Nagar market at cheap prices.

A short woolen dress, a pair of tights (optional) along with sneakers or boots is the easiest way out when you don’t feel like pulling another pair of pants. As a matter of fact, it goes with most shoes and can be paired with a coat or a jacket.






Woolen or fur, a well-tailored winter coat offers enough room to accommodate a sweater and keeps you warm. You can team it with a pair of tights and woolen dresses. They are available in sorts of length (waist or knee length), sizes, designs and colours. Coats in subdued colours like black, grey, dark blue or camel will be on high rotation in winter months as they go along with almost every outfit.





They are perfect for wearing with dresses and skirts in winters. They come in different colours and designs, but for the starters solid black is most preferable option.
