Well the fest season is slowly coming to an end .. the holiday mood has swept in and all the members who have worked hard to put up various events definitely deserve the long awaited Holi cum midsem break.
This time the stereotype was broken and Ramjas College which previously bore the brunt of not hosting a fest…held an enthralling and unique event .Prior to Mosaic 2016 the centennial celebrations in January had been widely applauded for its grandeur and ambience.
The euphoria still grips my fingers as I write this report to eagerly recount the events of the fest.
DAY 1 (15th March)
Mosaic 2016 began with a bang on a pleasant and sunny Tuesday (15th March) morning . A color run marathon was organized urging women empowerment. It was a long three kilometers run commencing from Ramjas College spanning the North Campus up to Vishwavidhyalaya metro station and back to Ramjas.
This was the maiden color run being organized so far in the history of Delhi University with Deputy Commissioner of anti- corruption Bureau as the Chief Guest. This event was sponsored by ROPOSO – a fashion social network who also provided t-shirts to all participating students. About 2,000 students registered for the event and it was termed a grand success.
The colors, excitement and euphoria gave Ramjas College a picturesque hue.
To add to all the color an artistic tinge was added by the display of street art in association with MTV junkyard project.
An intercollegiate fashion show entertained the students with eye candy performances and innovative displays. There were 9 participating teams and the event was judged by Suraj Soni ( Ramjas Fashion society) and Steffi Patel( model, upcoming actress).
The prime highlight of the day was the visit of ‘ Kapoor and Sons’ cast. All the girls were mesmerised by charming Siddarth Malhotra and charismatic Fawad Khan. The boys were definitely captured by cute Alia Bhatt. The crowd set cheering for Alia’s birthday singing a ‘ Happy Birthday ‘chorus.
With an eventful day coming to an end everyone looked forward to the events of Mosaic Day 2.
