ROTOFEST 2018-A Report

Happiness is the only good,
The time to be happy is now,
The place to be happy is here,
The way to be happy is to make others so!

 

 

Rotofest is one of the most happening events of MIT that portrays the art of loving people from all walks of life. This evocative event took place on 30 September 2018, where special children from various orphanages and homes around the city, made their presence. This fest inculcates the basic thought of loving people for who they are. The fest began by welcoming all the kids with greeting cards, followed by their active participation in various events. If a smile from a child is packaged sunshine, then these kids are the source of sunlight!

 

 

All throughout the day, they kept smiling no matter what. Victory in the events never bothered them. They never failed to be their friends’ cheerleaders. The kids participated in various events and games like carrom, chess, drawing and making greeting cards, clay modelling, quiz, rangoli, paper crafting, and other literary events. Next, came the time for them to shine in limelight. Cultural events like solo singing, group singing, solo and group dance, fancy dress competition took place. Apart from these, several events like ‘lemon in the spoon’ kept the charm of the children alive. These kids made the audience go crazy with their stunning performances. Their laughter and happiness proved the famous Thirukkural,

குழல்இனிது யாழ்இனிது என்பதம் மக்கள்
மழலைச்சொல் கேளா தவர்

 


Everytime a kid came running with excitement, these Bharathiyar verses virtually echoed within the walls!

பிள்ளைக்கனியமுதே – கண்ணம்மா
பேசும் பொற்சித்திரமே!
அள்ளியணைத்திடவே – என்முன்னே
ஆடிவருந் தேனே! 

 

 

Their smiles increased by inches, whenever they received a compliment and their charisma increased by hundreds whenever they heard a fast beat. All the colorful balloons and vibrant funky cartoon characters in the hanger made the children feel their abode in MIT. Their unadulterated affection towards the students proved to be adorable. These kids are better to be called “extra ordinary humans” because they posses the super power of being kind to a stranger without any terms and conditions, which most of us lack. Finally, after collecting their prizes, they bid farewell with their words of gratitude.


On the whole, Rotofest is a platform for the students to celebrate happiness along with god’s children. If we are to achieve a richer culture, we must weave one in which each diverse human gift will find a rational fitting place!
