Students of Cimage College displayed their musical gift on May 23 at the Idea Rocks India talent hunt on the institute premises. From classical to Bollywood, qawwali to sufi, students crooned all kinds of songs to prove their mettle. The event had been organised in the presence of Idea officials and Raman Singh, the local co-ordinator.
“Idea has always promoted young talent and it gives me immense pleasure to hold auditions for Idea Rocks India talent hunt at Cimage College. It is heartening to witness the extent of talent of the students of this college. I hope that Idea Rocks India would prove to be a platform for students in realising bigger dreams. If students impress judges with their performances, they would be given a chance to meet Bolly singer Sunidhi Chauhan,” said Raman.
He added: “This edition of Idea Rocks India would cover many cities with celebrity singers Mika and Sunidhi who would mesmerise audiences with their stellar performances. Idea will also give a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to selected aspirants to perform alongside the icons and exhibit their talent amidst thousands of people. Conceptualised in 2005, the talent hunt is aimed to identify a combination of ideal voice, performance and an X factor.”
Neha Kumari (21), a student of Cimage College, said: “Such kinds of talent hunts should be organised in Patna. So far, the city has not been very fortunate to host auditions of these national-level singing talent hunts.”
The philosophy and music department of Sri Arvind Mahila College organised a symposium on “Rabindranath Tagore: Analysis of his music and philosophy”, in the college on May 23 as part of the bard’s birth anniversary.
Among dignitaries present on this occasion were R.C. Sinha, a retired IAS officer and Neera Choudhary, head of music department of Magadh Mahila College. Speaking on the occasion, Sinha said Tagore’s creative genius found expression in poetry, novels, short stories, plays, paintings and essays.
Sinha also said that Tagore’s poems and essays provide a way to tackle the challenges that the world is facing today. “This could be viewed in the context of conservation of environment, threat to world peace. Gitanjali, a collection of over 100 inspirational poems penned by Tagore, for which the poet won the Nobel Prize is a must-read,” said Sinha. Neera also sang few rabindrasangeet on this occasion.
