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.”
