>         On the second day of the event sargam was the most interesting event happening. Sargam- a musical competition where students from different educational institutions had come to participate. It was a fun-filled and exciting experience for the participants as well as the audience. Music itself is always a relief from stress, to enliven our hearts and souls. When we have it as a competition, it becomes all the more exciting. This segment was beautifully hosted by Khushi. Sargam had four rounds. The competition commenced with our all-time favourite, Antakshari. You don't have to be a good singer in order to win this round. It is all about your stock of songs-- the more you know, the better you can compete with your fellow competitors. The main part of the show was the band named Raw Morality. It pulled the whole crowd's craziness and every person enjoyed it thoroughly.

Participants with full enthusiasm and the cheers of the audience made the show overwhelming.Their were various other events which was enjoyed by every person present.   

>                  On the fourth day and the final day was the most interesting day. The famous band "Lagori" was present. 


> ‘Lagori’ is a popular South Indian street game that -is also known as ‘Lingorchya’, ‘Pitthu’ and ‘Sitoliya’ in various other parts of India. This game is played by targeting a pile of seven stones. Our band’s fascination with the musical time signature of 7 plays a major role behind the name. The fun and energy with which this game is played is also prevalent in our music. All their hard work came into joy filled with tears. Trisha Das from Loreto College exclaimed, "I enjoyed to the fullest today. This segment was truly exciting!" Sayani Mandal, a student of Calcutta Girls' College and Suraj Dutta from Jaipuria College thoroughly enjoyed the programme as they said, "Thank you to the students of the institute for organising such a talent competition."
