Crossroads 2013


The most awaited event of Delhi University, the Crossroads, finally arrived with a massive bang. The SRCC Students Union proved yet again that they are the best when it comes to organising and managing events. Right from the security to the star night with Salim and Salaiman, everything was perfect. This time the Union had special passes, a White electronic card which was distributed for free to non SRites as well. Just like any other year the footfall crossed 5000 students. Even after the space constraint, there was no stampede, which was feared by most.There were about 10 bouncers and girls and boys had separate entry. The concert left everybody speechless. The crowd waved, danced and sang along with Salim and Sulaiman. The entire team’s performance was electrifying. All I am left to say is I can’t wait for the second day of the fest, which will witness the Sunburn!   Aishwarya chaurasia ([email protected])]]>

The people belonging to the college cribbed and cursed the concept of free invites to the annual Crossroads festival of SRCC as the college was packed beyond its capacity on 28th February, 2013. However, it was a riot of colours, with a score of activities to absorb and engage the crowd. The day started with events under “Student of the Year” taking place. ‘Dog in the Bone’, ‘Taboo’, ‘Drop by Drop’, the names might sound juvenile, but the passion that the students exhibited is otherwise rare to be seen. Other activities that had the crowd straining their sinews, shouting, cheering, howling (occasionally), took place in the back lawns with Trampoline Volleyball, Body Zorbing,  Zorb Ball rolling and others, as organised by the Travellers’ Society of SRCC. There was also a number of food stalls to cater to the students’ frequent hunger pangs. From QD’s to Brown Sugar, to Kori’s, to the “Purani Dilli ke mashoor chhole kulche”, the campus had become quite a food court. Finally there was the much looked forward to SUNBURN festival, a coming together of Djs like NDS & BLUE, Dj Shaan,  Lost Stories and Dj Anish Sood as part  of ‘Random Collisions’ in Crossroads. It started around 5:30 and made the entire campus come alive to the transcendental beats of the DJs. The crowd danced like there was no tomorrow. Apart from the usual rule-flouting and a bit of “Look what she’s wearing!, it was a day well spent, marked by technicolored emotions and just plain, raw fun!   Vatsala Gaur ([email protected])]]>
