1:00 pm. As the judge, Dr Anonna Guha rightly said, “It was a pleasant surprise to see so
many young people involved in classical dance. The addition of folk dance to the classical
performances was very innovative, and interesting to watch.” Filled with a supportive crowd,
everyone at the Bhabha Hall was absolutely enthralled with the contestants’ portrayal of the
navarasas. From Sita’s Abduction in The Ramayana to Lord Shiva’s Tandava, watching the
participants present a variety of famous mythological stories was a refreshing change in pace
today.

Informals. The event started at 1:00 pm and was held in Room 31. In this event, participants,
in pairs were expected to design outfits by making compulsory use of garbage bags, with
science fiction films as their theme. On Day 1 of this event, participants were seen chalking
out their outfit ideas and creating blueprints, which were eventually to be sewn into outfits.
Round 1 witnessed soft whispering, intense brainstorming and a surreal outflow of creativity.
Then, Junk-E took place in the Multi Purpose Hall at 3:00 pm. This innovative competition

the tunes of ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love with You’ to remembering childhood favourites like
‘Beauty and The Beast’. Judged by Anushka Shahani, a famous singer and lyricist who has
sung songs in movies like ‘Half Girlfriend', this event was thoroughly enjoyed by the
participants and audience alike.
