Lights, Camera and Action!
DAV College, Sector 10, Chandigarh was fortunate enough to witness the 59th Youth and Cultural Festival as it shifted to DAV College for two events, namely, Histrionics and Drama, on the day two of the fest.
The event took place in the main auditorium of DAV College, Sector 10, Chandigarh. Dr. Surinder Sharma, Professor Yogesh Gambhir, and Principal Kamal Arora attended the event as venerated judges.
The competition was categorized into two genres, namely ‘Histrionics’ which included five acts and the ‘One Act Play’, including 7 acts. Government College of Commerce and Business Administration, Sector 50 claimed the first position for ‘Histrionics’ followed by GGDSD College, Sector 32 and DAV College, Sector 10. For the ‘One Act Play’, DAV College, Sector-10 embraced the first position. SGGS College, Sector 26 and Government College of Commerce, Sector 50, acquired second and third position respectively.
The competition witnessed ample of talent and passion present within the performers. Anger, sadness, happiness, motivation and several other emotions were expressed in every act, giving goosebumps to the audience at every point. The theme of every act performed was well chosen and was far-fetched. It mainly revolved around social and political issues like; rape, militancy in Kashmir, Globalisation, Indian culture and religious superstitions in India. Actors did a remarkable job subsuming moral values into their humorous acts.
Professor Yogesh Gambhir, concluded the event with a speech whereby he appreciated participants for such a zealous participation. At the same time, NSS workers of DAVC equally contributed to the successful conduct of the event. The fest gave students a golden opportunity to prove their metal in the sphere of drama.
Youth Fest is known for providing a platform to the students and their hidden talents. Studies and Extra Curricular activities go hand in hand for the development of a person, if one takes over the other, the development is hindered. It is the main soul of the Youth and Cultural Festival to showcase the hidden talents in the students and bring a balance in the scale for students, and needless to say, the second day of the Youth Fest stood testament to the same.
