Ami Fest 2015
In keeping with tradition at Amity University Gurgaon, the colourful and vibrant annual student’s festival –Ami fest 2015 – was held on 20 March 2015. The day-long intra-university festival showcased the myriad talents possessed by the students of AUG, be it in the field of art and culture or in the sphere of technology and engineering. While on the one hand, the festival witnessed excellent performances on the dance stage, supremely talented students regaled the audiences with brilliant singing on the other.
Amifest has been part of the AUG folklore since its inception as a university in 2010. The student’s festival is an extremely important part of the academic calendar as each student looks forward to the events with enthusiasm and interest. The 2015 version of Amifest was a grand success with student’s participation being above expectations in all events convened as part of the festival, including Techfest 2015 organized by the Amity School of Engineering and Technology.
A major highlight of Amifest 2015 was the spectacular fashion fiesta which captured the imagination of the audience like never before. Students of fashion design and technology showcased their creations on the ramp cheered by a massive show of strength from the students. The glittering fashion event was preceded by DJ War which drew tremendous applause from the audience as the multi-faceted character of our students came to the fore. The auditoria rang out with the beats of the bhangra as well as popular Bollywood numbers as the solo and group dance competitions were held enthralling the students and faculty alike.
Technical skills of the students were on full display as they participated with gusto and vigour in the several technical events organized as part of Techfest 2015 including technical paper presentation, circuit designing, LAN gaming, MATLAB and MCAD, as well as paper plane flying. The day-long technical fest engaged the students as previous year’s winners jostled for space with new aspirants. The Tech Gallery with innovative technical and scientific models prepared by the students and faculty was a major highlight of Techfest 2015. The events were well attended and successfully completed.
The field of literature and social issues received a special boost as Poetica 2015 and The Big Debate 2015 were held as part of Amifest. The debate competition saw a fantastic response from the students as eight teams and two individual participants matched their wits on a topic of great relevance, “Freedom of expression with conditions is no freedom”. Close to twenty students recited their self-composed poems and drew tremendous applause from the audience as well as the judges.
A high point of Amifest 2015 was the Nukkad Natak competition which drew on social issues such as women’s safety to engage the audiences with their superlative performances. Live painting sessions with prominent artists from around the country was organized along with an art and sculpture exhibition.
Amifest 2015 ended with the students feeling one with the ethos of Amity University Gurgaon where talent and spirit is celebrated and promoted. The infectious enthusiasm matched the efforts of all faculty coordinators involved in the festival.
