- The sheer Magnitude of the Event
With over 50 different events from the various categories , Goonj was taken to a whole new level this year . We had technical events ( of course ! ) but it didn’t stop at that . We had fine arts events , we had literary and cultural events too !
The participation was not limited just to The University ( or Chandigarh for that matter ) as we saw students from colleges from as far as Rajpura and Landran enrolling for the events .
- The Photobooooth!
One of the coolest additions to the fest, the photobooth was swamped with students holding placards like “Dheet by nature” and “Main partyholic hu”. After all , who doesn’t like an accessorised Selfie ?
- Robo Wars!
Robots made by students from UIET . Racing . And fighting . Does is get better than this ? This was undoubtedly among the most interesting events this year .
- Fun stalls and Events
Events such as “Beg Borrow sell” , a refinement of “Beg borrow steal” and ‘Now you see me’ which was a quiz based on popular TV shows , were a huge hit among the students.
And the VR booth was one of the coolest things to happen to UIET!
- The Weather
The bad weather did not dampen the spirit of Goonj and the show went on. And for that ,kudos to the organisers!
- Gippy Grewal
The star night is among the most awaited events of any fest . And we had with us none other that the Punjabi Heartthrob Gippy Grewal.
The credit for the tremendous success of the show goes wholly to the Organizing Committee . These were the men ( and women ) behind the knockout that was Goonj 2016!
