“PANTHEON” - Annual Departmental Fest conducted by the very enthusiastic English society of Delhi College of Arts and Commerce proved to be a humongous success. The name itself brings back happy memories of the outstanding two day affair.
It was held on the 4th and 5th of March. More than 100 volunteers worked tirelessly for days to make it a success. Many interesting and brain teasing competitions were held which made Pantheon more appealing and unique.
“Turncoat” a very unusual kind of debate where the speaker had to talk both for and then ‘turn his coat’ and enunciate against the same topic given to him. This was one of the events which caught the attention of the crowd. “Brainsutra” the quiz was a grand success. The Brain master was truly entertaining and was a good host. The treasure hunt was the trump card of the entire event. Many determined participants were found running around in the entire campus searching for clues to reach the treasure.
The panel discussions on both the topics; Literature’s influence on music and the trend of book adaptations were the most delightful and captivating experiences above all events. The panelists of the former comprised of a former student of DCAC Craig Dominic Pinto who along with the other panelists enlightened the audience with their vast knowledge of music. The latter discussion on book adaptations which comprised of a critic, a director and an actor kept the audience wanting for more. This impressive combination had completely different view points on the same subject and left the audience with no choice but to stick to their seats with either a huge smile plastered over their faces or their eyebrows arched in surprise.
The English department left no stone unturned with their phenomenal decoration. Complying with the theme i.e. “fiction” the auditorium was decorated with all sorts of eye catching props and created a very classy yet lively atmosphere. Just outside the auditorium a second hand book stall was set up which was completely jam packed as the students very excitedly bought their favorite books at absolutely affordable prices. They laughed and giggled posing either as Cinderella or Prince Charming at the photo studio set near the corridor.
All these activities made Pantheon a blockbuster ‘paisa vasool’ super hit among the viewers who exited the college greatly satisfied with their decision to ‘count themselves in’ for this highly spirited event.
The fest cum carnival was as vibrant and colorful as its bright yellow posters promised it to be. Hats off to the entire English society for pulling off such an entrancing show in such a short span of time. Cheers!Last modified on Monday, 11 March 2013 19:16
