MITAFEST REPORT – DAY 3, DAY 4

DAY 3

 

The morning of the 3rd day of MITAFEST began with the dance battle at Rajam Hall followed by the Mr. and Ms. MITAFEST title events.

The atmosphere at Rajam Hall was similar to a superstar’s FDFS show, as the auditorium was housefull. MIT’s The Box Office Club conducted a set of fun-filled events for the enthusiastic participants from MIT as well as other colleges. 

 

The night’s first attraction was the scintillating, jaw dropping Megadance where 35 dancers from MIT gave a non-stop dance for 30 minutes straight. It was one of their best efforts yet.

 

This was followed by the Inter-college variety entertainment competition in which many colleges from the city including Guru Nanak college, Cresent college of Engineering, CEG,etc. had participated.

Students from CEG, our fellow Anna University mates who delivered an emotional performance which was full of heart, were crowned the champions of the event.

The third year MIT boys (the raging purple taggers) were awarded the winner’s prize for the intra-college variety entertainment competition.

 

Then, we geared up to welcome the chief guests for the night, from the best Tamil comedy channel on YouTube, Black Sheep. The fan favourite VJ Siddhu, Ram Nishanth and ‘Settai’ Sheriff delighted the crowd with their witty sense of humour and their hilarious rib-tickling jokes. Our beloved Dean was also present and sure was having a great time at the MITafest.

Day 3 was a vibrant showcase of variety entertainment!

 


 

 

DAY 4

 

 

The bright Sunday morning of the final day of MITFEST20 started with the solo and duo inter-college dance competions at Rajam Hall.

Meanwhile, it was indeed refreshing to see the boys and girls rocking the veshti’s and saree’s as it was the ‘Tamil Traditional day’ and MIT’s Tamil Mandram presented a set of classical events including Kavidhai recitation, solo and group singing, and of course, the classic Traditional Dance competition.

 

The final and most awaited night of Mitafest20 started with the inauguration of the yoga club in MIT after which two students performed Yogasanas live on stage for the audience. MIT’s Tamil Mandram took over the stage and thereafter, the stage turned into a dance floor. They performed different variations of traditional Tamil dance forms including Bharatanatyam.

 

Then the anchors from Galatta media, the witty and funny VJ Ashiq and the charming VJ Parvathy, walked up to stage and immediately, the crowd was excited as they were ready to welcome the first chief guest for the night, Actress Athulya Ravi. Athulya was a show-stealer, she cheered up the impatient crowd with her charming looks and adorable dance. Her humbleness was more evident than her beauty.

 

Later, the energetic team behind the viral song ” Heart’u Beat’u ” starring the gorgeous and talented Nakshatra Nagesh were present on stage to show us their music video. Nakshatra also showed us that she’s a fantastic dancer as she danced along with VJ Ashiq and VJ Parvathy.

 

The next chief guest who entered the arena was the much awaited Narendra Prasad also known as “NP” , graced the occasion with his electrifying dance performance. He also had a fun chat with the students through a short Q and A session.

 

Just when we thought we’d already seen the best of MIT’s dancers, Mitafest20’s choreo-nite had begun with different colleges across the city bringing out the best of their dance moves.SSN institute had won the competition which was judged by Natasha and Raghavan Pugazh who also gave a stunning finishing performance.

 

Actress Amritha from ‘Bigil’ was the last chief guest for the day,who not only did she show off her singing abilities, she also clicked a selfie with the huge crowd present in the OAT which is now doing the rounds on Instagram.

 

When we thought that this was one of the best days of mitafest20, the last performance for the day was given by our students who lit up the stage(quite literally) with the eye catching fire show performing difficult fire stunts with utmost perfection which was an absolute feast for our eyes.

 

And finally, the DJ night had begun with party music and and needless to say, the entire crowd at MIT was dancing and singing together, it almost felt like a Sunburn concert.

 

 

To sum it up, Mitafest20 was a fantastic and fun-filled event, which delighted our students and professors and will definitely be remembered for a very long time!
