Rising to the need of a cleaner India, the Sociology Department of MCM DAV College for Women organized a major event based onClean India Movement on September 7. It broke the monotony of the general discussions on the cleanliness with five diverse competitions namely– Poster-making, Dustbin-making, Just-a-minute (JAM), T-shirt-painting and Jingle-making all revolving around the theme of ‘Swach Bharat’.
While Just-a-minute (JAM) gave the students an opportunity to exercise their public-speaking skills and to speak their mind out on the topic, the best of their creativity was tested in the poster-making competition wherein the students painted the future of the cleanliness. But what stood appreciable was the fact that the out-of-the box competitions such as Dustbin-making and T-shirt painting attracted a great response from the students. Giving a rhythmic twist to the seriousness of the topic, the jingle-making brought about a breeze of freshness. While the content of the jingle was fitted par excellence, the base of the bollywood songs added a whole new hue to it.
Though the registration for taking part in any competition was done before-hand, considering the demand of the student of various streams and different years, the department later allowed participants without any registration requirement.
A number of dance and singing performances on songs ranging from Hindi to Punjabi and further to English rejuvenated the audience. Short and crisp quizzes in between kept the mood high.
The grand success of the event was partly because of the high participation by the students; the gravitational cause remained the chief-guests of the event. The prizes of various competitions were given by none other than Sooraj Pancholi, son of Aditya Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, daughter of Sunil Shetty. Both the bollywood debutants had come for the promotion of their upcoming movie named HERO, which would be releasing on September 11.
On the conclusion of the event, the department was congratulated by Principal Mrs. Neena Dhawan, and what majorly seemed clear was the fact that this event as organized on September 7 was one of the most successful events organized by the Sociology department so far.
