Goonj 2016 by XADAM (Xaverian Academy of Dance & Music)

XADAM (Xaverian Academy of Dance And Music) - the students’ wing of St Xavier's College Cultural Association, had geared up for an Inter College Cultural Fest this year which was held on the 25th of September and inaugurated by Reverend Fr. Dominic Savio. The highlight of this festival was the dance extravaganza "Season Of Love" to be put up by the host institute. This beautiful performance by the college students, who'd genuinely seemed to
have worked hard for the past couple of weeks to put up such a spectacular show, was a resounding hit. 
The dedication and hard work of each student was displayed on stage and was definitely awe-inspiring for the crowd. Several big colleges from the city took part in the event, with many innovative events being held like Tarana(Dance Competition), Nishaad(Band Competition), Dwita(Duet Dance Competition) and JAM(Just a Minute). The event was also highlighted by Panel Discussions & Celebrity Appearances.  The festival also consisted of a Glorious Magic Show.

The festival was received well by the audience and the response was overwhelming. In all honesty, college fests these days are all about interesting events and fresh attitudes - a place where students showcase their imaginations and talents. SXC has constantly strived over the years to include diverse events so that students from all over the city can participate and make it a grand success. The show concluded on a high note, as everybody cheered and sang with the crowd, making it one of the most happening events of the city.

PS: We love you, SXC! ;)

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…
