"Hurry up!” My friend told me over the phone, twenty minutes before the Inter-Department Group dance competition held on 12th December 2013. Hurrying with my expectations heightened, I saw a throng of students waiting to be let into the Multi-purpose hall (Block C).

Once inside, the atmosphere thrummed with excitement and eagerness. Lights and faces beamed alike.

The audience screamed as the performances began with Eastern group dances and the cheers grew louder as the show progressed, peaking at the Western group dances. The dancing kings and queens showed off their smooth moves with bright smiles and the crowd went berserk.

The show concluded with stunning performances by the judges themselves and then, the results. In the Eastern segment, the Department of Management Studies won the first place followed by the Departments of Media & Communication and Engineering bagging the second and third place.

The media students won again, taking the crown for Western, with the Department of Engineering and Department of Interior design & Architecture in the second and third places.

“I’m really, really happy. My crew was awesome!” said first year Media student, Madhumitha Raghavan who performed in the Eastern dance category.

All in all, the event was a success, leaving its audience sore throated and upbeat.
