Diwali is the festival of lights that is marked by two daysof celebration, quite literally illuminating the country with its brilliance. Each of the two days is separated by a different tradition, but what remains constant is the celebration of life, its enjoyment and goodness. ISBF organised a Diwali fest which turned out to be a huge success. With the lighting of the lamp, followed by a splendid performance from our music society, T.R.I.N., the fest got off to a fine start. The aesthetics society organised a diya and bag decoration competition, followed by a treasure hunt organised by the ISBF press club. Throughout the event, a ‘Bake Sale’ was organised by the Social Work Society on the cafeteria balcony, as well as a couple of game stalls by the Sports Society, both of which were a great success.
DIYA AND BAG DECORATION
As part of ISBF’s Diwali celebrations on the 13th of October, Artefactory organized a diya decorating event. The event comprised of 10 teams with four people in each. All the teams were provided with decorating materials which were to be used by them to add life to diyas and paper bags within a stipulated time period. The team comprising of the following people won the event – Snigdha Agarwal and Aditi Gupta Anushka Neyol and Devjyot Singh The event beautifully captured the festive spirit of Diwali. All the teams came up with creative ways to skillfully decorate the diyas and make them reflective of the spirit which symbolizes the force behind a festival such as Diwali. Each and every person had a different idea of how to proceed and each team’s end product was a beautiful culmination of such ideas. Diyas are used to light up houses during Diwali but in this case the colours used to decorate the diyas shone more brightly than the light generally produced by diyas. The diya decorating event was really a huge success, engaging a large proportion of the student body into enthusiastically decorating the diyas while the nonparticipants were actively engaged in observing this lively event.
The ISBF Music Society is no stranger to hosting a great show and the Diwali Fest was not an exception to this. The fest witnessed the display of some amazing performances. Archa Sharma and Raghav Sharma did an amazing job of entertaining everyone through the beats of the classical number “Pehla Nasha “. This was just the beginning as the music society presented another scintillating performance by Simar Kohli, Raghav Sharma and Arnav Jain who got everybody on their toes by performing “Gulabi Aankhen”. Abimanyu Bose and Rohan Bagga did a commendable job on the guitar during the performance of this song which served as the perfect end to a beautiful evening. Once again the music society proved their mettle by demonstrating their ability to channel their musical acumen into soothing performances.
On the 14th of October, 2013, the entire student body at ISBF along with all the faculty members celebrated one of India’s most awaited festivals, the festival of lights; Diwali. An integral part of this celebration was the first of its kind “Ad-mad show’ organized by the Career Placement Cell along with Akademos. The two participating teams were given three props each, one of which was the main prop and the other two were supporting props. The teams were given 10 mins each to come up with a witty, creative and indulging advertisement of about 3-5 mins. The task was challenging, the ideas interesting and the creation intriguing. The first team comprised of Anushka Neyol, Awleen Chawla, Devjot S. Narula and Varun Jain. Their main prop was a packet of healthy ready-to-eat soup supported by a bar of chocolate and an apple. nterestingly, they came up with the ‘yummalika’ chocolate soup. Their advertisement was indulging and appreciated by all. The second team was that of Anupama Gireesh, Adarsh and Soumyopriyo Ganguly. They advertised a notebook with the help of a punching machine that could fly and a multipurpose glue stick. Their ad was another piece of creative brainstorming and witty jokes. Despite two competitive performances, there could obviously be just one winner. The judges, Arjo sir (our very own sociology professor) and Sankalp Singh Kalra (CPC President) declared the second team as the winners for the day. On the whole, the entire event was an interesting and enjoyable experience that made us laugh, think and learn.
