Kaleidoscope 2016 | Press Release | DAY 6

The last day of the festival began earlier than usual to accommodate all performances, in an attempt to do justice to all the talent  attending the festival. Despite the rain, the turn-out was far greater than expected as both participants and visitors showed up in droves to enjoy the festival.

The first event of the day was held on the Informals court. An incredibly fast paced event, Slam Dunk was a basketball tournament that took place in the Informals Court. Despite the rain, the players put up an intense match with great grit and passion. Project K, organized by team Informals and Fine Arts, was a costume creation event. Costumes had to be made with anything but fabric. Water bottles, CD’s, garbage bags, and more were used.

In Pixel dust, organized by Fine Arts, participants had to draw chits to be assigned a topic, on which they had to design a logo. They also had to provide a description & service for the product. Both Photoshop and Illustrator software was utilized to come up with their designs. Toon tunes had its final today, organized by team Performing Arts. The Judge for the event was Hriday Gattani, a singer by profession, who was also promoting “Banjo”, which is an upcoming movie starring Nargis Fakhri and Ritesh Deshmukh. He also sang the song “udan choo” from Banjo. For What are Words Worth, the contestants had sent in their poems by the 15th of September and post a round of scanning for plagiarism, they had to recite it before the judge Shruti Sunderraman. Artiface is a face-painting event organized by Fine arts. The theme was science fiction and participants were asked to paint an alien and create a head-gear for it. ‘I love what students create, the work they present is amazing and that’s why I was keen to come to K’scope this year too’ said the Judge Johit, a professional-make-up artist.

You Tasked For It, an Informals event, was held all over the campus at 1:00 PM today. The event required participants to complete a set of given tasks and submit them along with photographic evidence.

The difficulty level of the tasks ranged from easy to difficult, with one of the funniest tasks needed them to tie up one of the E.C. members to a tree. Shocking? Well you tasked for it. To be or Not to be was an event organized by the Performing Arts team in the Bhabha Hall. Based on renditions of Shakespearean plays, the performers gave it their best, including a notable performance of ‘The Merchant of Venice’.

The day ended with the closing ceremony, which included a short tribute to the senior members of the workforce.
