The annual fest Crossroads’17 of Shri Ram College of Commerce hosted the Indian Choir Competition Saarang on the third day which had participants from eight different colleges. The competition was judged by Renuka Arya where Samranjhini of Gargi College emerged as the winners. Swaranjali of Hansraj College and Geetanjali of Miranda House jointly bagged the second position in the competition. The Indian solo singing competition Alaap where Dhruv Pargai of IIIT Delhi sang the winning song. Vaishnavi Tyagi of Hansraj College and Lakshay Kapoor of Ramanujan College got jointly awarded the first runner up in the competition.

Picturesque, punchy and unabashedly stylish, the five colleges that participated in Crossroad’s Inferno, the Fashion Show, definitely made an impression. Judged by Harsh Khullar and Ashmita Jaiswal, Kamla Nehru College emerged victorious in this battle of the trends with the likes of fashion societies from Maitreyi, Keshava Maha Vidyalaya, SSSGC and GNIOT providing stiff competition. The overriding trend seemed to be dark lipshades and eccentric outfits. However, Glitz,the Fashion Society of KNC stole the show with its performance on the theme ‘Savage Mind’ in shades of blue, black and grey. This event was undoubtedly a feast for the eyes.

The MTV Campus Diaries Dancemob Faceoff started off with some power packed performances and energetic beats. Judged by the iconic Salman Khan, former winner of Dance India Dance, his personal commentary carried the entire event and inspired the teams to give some killer performances. He also joined one of the teams on stage for a little jig.

Participants included a total of 13 teams, but Zeal, the Western Dance Society of Maitreyi College bagged the winners’ cheque for Rs 50,000. A night promised to be full of excellent dancing and good music, this event definitely set the tone for the rest of the night. 

The night closed with a crowd-pumping performance by DJ Rave Crave, who mixed up various dance and EDM numbers to make the crowd groove to the beats!
