Bhubaneswar, Feb. 20: Undergraduates from various institutions had a gala time while taking part in fun-filled competitions at the inter-college talent hunt show — Reverie 2013 — at Bhanjakala Mandap yesterday.
An array of interesting events and competitions were lined up for the event. The students got ample opportunity to showcase their talents and win laurels for their colleges.
The day began with RJ hunt. The participants chose slots of their show and prepared the content according to the slot.
Those, who chose the morning slot, usually spoke of energetic work while those with night slots spoke about love.
The students used their innovations in voice modulation and mimicry. Those with flair in public speaking got a chance to exhibit their speaking skills at the VJ hunt. While voice was the criteria for the RJ hunt, the participant’s attitude was the deciding factor in the VJ hunt. Noted anchors and radio jockeys not only judged the events, but also gave valuable tips to the youngsters to improve upon their skills.
Spectators enjoyed the fashion show, where participants, dressed in haute couture, walked the ramp. The participants not only tried to give a perfect walk, but also had to exhibit their dancing, singing and acting skills in the talent round.
In the last round, the participants had to answer some tough personality questions posed by the judges.
The following competition was of group dance, where the youngsters grooved on dance numbers that ranged from folk to contemporary genres.
The artists had their share of fun in competitions such as print advertisement design, while the budding writers enjoyed putting thoughts to words.
The event also saw two rock bands jamming on the occasion. Raaga and the show-stealer of the day, Vighnanz, sang some popular numbers along with their original compositions.
“Such cultural events are a platform not only to test your talents, but also to socialise. We can pick our flaws from such events and improve on those areas. More than winning, it is about learning,” said Sudhesa Mallick, a private engineering college student.
A private institute, First Academy of Media and Entertainment (Fame) organised the show.
