Odyssey, the annual cultural program of IIIT Delhi, was held in the college premises on the 25th of March 2017, in which students from all around Delhi actively participated. It was a two-day extravaganza with numerous exciting events such as dancing, singing, mime act, and many more, where students were seen enjoying themselves to the fullest, and where the talent was the best of the best! Out of the many amazing events, here are the highlights of one of them that really lingered on in our minds:
Hasratein- the Nukkad Natak Competition at IIIT Delhi saw participation from various colleges from across Delhi. The theme of the nukkad natak was to bring to light social evils like crime, corruption, racism, socialism, feminism, and others. Distinguished guests, elite guardians and students of the college also attended the function.The chief guests were Ojaswini Gul, Shankar Malwani Sachdeva. Each and every team that performed there made a difference in their own way, and gave out a very strong message- the youth is becoming more aware, and they will bring about the change the world has been hoping for.
The event revealed many aspects of our culture before the audience. This is what Shivam from MAIT- the winning team had to say “Insaniyat nahi rahi logo me, hum yuvao me jagrukta laa rahe hai nukkad natak k jarie“. While Ravi from Aurobindo College shared his viewpoint “Across the nation there is a mass wave where people are not able to express their opinions freely, aspirations and dreams are crushed like a folded paper, so we thought to change the mentality of people through nukkad natak“. And Tanya from Laxmibai college said that their motive through nukkad natak was to change the mentality of people.
The chief guests too, delivered a thought-provoking speech, giving a lot of importance to the need for arranging such programmes on a regular basis, and congratulating the students for their laudable performance.
Yes, we do need more awareness in the society, and we do need more youngsters working towards this change, because they truly are the pillars of tomorrow.
