The annual teachers’ day event was held on 7th September 2015 and as is customary, so was the official freshers’ event. The evening started off with the Registrar’s usual eloquence, mixed in with bouts of shaayari. The performances started with Sidharth (Year IV) who played the Airtel tune and Tum Hi Ho on the Melodica. Subsequently, Bhavninder and Kanishk (Year II) and Damini and Bhishm (Year III) performed the bhangra, which brought the house down. Abhimanyu and Vered then delivered a fantastic rendition of Someone Like You by Kings of Leon. Up next were Kaali Prasad and Rohan Andrew (Year II) who, along with Aaditya Gambhir, performed Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud. One could hear distinct cheers of “Marry Me Kaali!” from the crowd.
After the music, came the fifth years’ brilliant performance on a medley of songs. Then Shrutanjaya Bharadwaj’s soulful music filled the auditorium, along with Riddhi Jad singing Little Talk by Monsters and Men, Lukka Chuppi Bahut Hui, Aaj Jaane Ki Zidd Na Karo and All I Want by Kodaline. There was a slight delay before the dance performance of the fourth year girls and Koirobi and Kaali (Year II) took the lead and sang Photograph by Ed Sheeran and Iktara.
After the fourth year girls’ performance, Sattu performed again, along with Saral and Yash. They performed the theme song from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, I’ll Be There for You (F.R.I.E.N.D.S. theme song) and the Hero cycles theme song. Then Arpita danced to Nacha Farante Maar and Desi Girl. The Fourth years’ girls then danced to a series of Bolloywood songs, including Hamma Hamma and Ek Do Teen, after which the fourth year boys danced to Tunak Tunak Tun.
Next up were a series of unfortunate events. A group of girls from the second year started their dance performance but were unsuccessful in the attempt as the music suddenly stopped. Then Bhargavi stepped in and sang The Call. The second years tried to finish their performance after this but the music stopped again. It just wasn’t their day. After this, Sushant and Co. sang and the fifth years came of stage and danced. Inevitably, they refused to get off stage and demanded that the Punjabi music be unleashed. As expected, the event then just turned into a mob of saree and kurta-clad students, dancing to their hearts’ content. All in all, fun times were had.
