November 15, 2017 | Activities

The afternoon of Saturday, the 11th of November 2017 was buzzing with activity in the University campus. Classes ended at 1 pm and the various competitions began. One section of the Management block was filled with eager students all trying to be the best chef, some even dressed like one!

Cook without Fire saw equal numbers of boys and girls who vied for the top spot with innovative blends of food and interesting presentation styles. Members of the Culinary Club could be seen walking around ensuring participants followed the rules.

Another section was awash with colour as participants gave expression to their creativity with large and elaborate rangoli patterns, over seen by attentive members of the Art Club

The Photography and Sketching entries for the competition conducted by the Photography and Art Clubs were up for all to see and the gathered students stood around discussing who would be awarded the first prize.

Room MFF 13 saw an interesting debate on “Robots can reshape humanity for the better “ with extended time that nobody really minded. The Science Club had conducted this event.

The Saral Jeevan TV channel was on campus to conduct competitions for the students and also shoot an episode on Presidency University for the Namm College series. Enthusiastic students participated in the three minute challenge and win prizes, cheered on by an active audience.

The campus also played host to eminent singer/composer and Filmfare award nominee Ms. Vani Harikrishna as the chief guest for a cultural program by the students on the occasion of Karnataka Rajyotsava . Ms. Vani sang and enthralled one and all. Arun Gowda the special guest gave a scintillating replay of Dr Rakkumar’s portrayal in Bhaktha Prahlada – a mytholological film and spoke about his upcoming Kannada movie “3 ghante, 30 dina, 30 second.”

The Dollukunitha and the “Huli Vesha” acts had everyone watching spellbound.

All in all, it was an afternoon filled with dance, music and celebration , and everyone went home refreshed and with a smile on their lips.
