One of the many things that make the University of Delhi happening and enchanting is the performing arts societies and their marvelous annual productions. In the past few months, we saw cut-throat competition across several Delhi University colleges. The hours and hours of practice and hard work were put to test this fest season and from amongst the pool of massive talent, some groups emerged brighter than the others. We attempt to select the best society of the lot.
The best college society in each category was selected by creating a tally of the top 3 positions that could be won at various events. The society that secured the 1st position was awarded 3 points, the society that secured the 2nd position was awarded 2 points, and finally, the society securing the 3rd position was awarded 1 point.
Eight college fests were referred to while evaluating the top societies tally this fest season. They were: Tarang, LSR; Ullas, KNC; Tempest, Miranda House; Montage, JMC; Mecca, Hindu College; Reverie, Gargi College; and Nexus, Sri Venkateswara College.
The Top Three
In the Choreography category, Terpsi Chorean, Choreography Society of Hansraj College, scored the maximum points. Terpsi Choreon’s 12 points were followed by Sparx, the Choreography Society of Gargi College (10 points). The third position was bagged by Sensation, the Choreography Society of Kirori Mal College (7 points).

The Winning Society at a glance
With this year’s annual production “The Invictus”, Terpsi Chorean remained in the winners tally in almost all fests. Their piece was powerful, evocative, and impeccably coordinated. The story of survival and perseverance was conveyed clearly and the emotions were expressed with grace and skill. While in conversation with DU Beat, Pawni Singhal (President) said, “This year has been an extraordinary one with lots of miseries and happiness at the same time. I have experienced the best time of my life by working with the best team members one can get. Overwhelmed with love and hard work everyone became each other’s strength and never let Terpsi Chorean down.”
