Day 1 of Jashn 2011, featured western and eastern bands from many universities across UAE. Manipal University’s students participated in the event to display their talent and bag some exciting prizes. 

The western and eastern bands consisted of students from various departments of Manipal University, Dubai. Hassan Sheikh, Aman Adriel John, Jessica Evangeline, Melwyn Johnathan, Diana Khambata and Sudhakshina Shivkumar performed for the western battle of the bands competition. They opened with a self-composed and written song, but were outperformed by BITS, Ranchi who won first prize. 

However, the Eastern band ‘Dhun’ wowed the audience as Gokul Warrier, Ashish, Vishnu, Derek, Nimrod and Neeraj grabbed first prize and paved the first win for Manipal University. Day 2 of Jashn will entertain audiences with the all-popular inter-university dance competition.

We wish the participating teams all the luck.
