Mitafest – 2017


கல் தோன்றி மண் தோன்றா காலத்தே முன் தோன்றிய மூத்த குடி தமிழ் குடி

It only fits like a charm that one of the oldest civilizations of the world, the one that is supposed to have originated earlier than land itself was around which the oldest cultural fest in Tamilnadu based its entire 4 day celebration on, especially at this legendary period when we are marking our route to changing perspectives and creating more history.

MITAFEST 2017 started with fervor on Thursday the 23rd, 3.30pm but the campus started showing signs of celebration for more than a month. With trinkets and lights that sparkled all over the campus, and flash mobs organized a day earlier, the students had no difficulty getting into an uber fun mood, one level higher than the fun that they are generally used to.

Following the inauguration, which was kindly graced by Mr. Karthikeyan Sivasenapathi, we had the intra college events led by dance duets, taking place at the Rajam Hall. Next we had the college band “Vibes” performing which left no stones unturned in resonating with the audience, with their choppy, yet raucous performance.

The 2nd day of this event had our flamboyant variety team begin the day by conducting informal events, entertaining the audience with their fun games and lively commentary . This was followed by intra college adzap and footloose, both of which were received with huge enthusiasm among the students. Simultaneously, art contests like rangoli, face painting and mehendi were conducted, and various other stalls were put up for amusement around which students crowded eagerly trying their hand at luck. The events of the day came to an end with the short film screening, and as the night made its way along, our variety team was ready to entertain us with their quick wit and cocky humor.

The night also witnessed actress Yashika of Dhuruvangal padhinaaru fame, RJ love guru, and Actor Senthil, grace the night with their presence. Choreo events then unfolded which had so many students take to their feet with their energetic dance numbers.

The 3rd day of MITAFEST 17, was exceptional, not just because that was the day when the intercollegiate events started, but also because the students dolled up in traditional attire, true to the spirit of the event. With rustic music and dance forms, the college had an rural aura by itself and had the students fall in love with the campus all over again. It was an ethnic party in the true sense of the phrase. Uri adi, pallanguzhi, Silambattam, bike stunts are some events that deserve more than just a mention. The events of the night had actor Kaali Venkat and singer Velmurugan of “Karuppunerathazhagi” fame discern upon them, surely to be impressed.

As 26th February 2017 dawned upon us with intercollege adzap and potpouri contests both of which were huge hits among the students. Solo- singing, solo – instrumental events and solo- dance events were a delight to both the participants and the spectators. The day ended with a bang as the college rejoiced with actor Shanthanu, dubsmash girl Mrinalini and the crew of the movie Kaadal Kan Kattuthe. Students from various other colleges rocked the stage with their stunning dance numbers, which had the audience take to their feet.

The organizers must be given entire credits for pulling of such an imposing event, with a touch of social responsibility and obligation, doing full justice to the tag line “இனி ஒரு விதி செய்வோம் “. A sense of melancholy can be detected in every student’s eye as they observe this year’s MITAFEST shroud about into the past and turn into nothing but beautiful memories as they gear up for the routine Monday mornings with little more than average Monday morning blues.
