Aagneya-The festival of fire


hi all.....
 this marks my entry to this blog...it feels like getting 
an entry into IPL from domestic cricket.....am only 
an average blogger.. to be honest...and ve jus started 
with it..and the reason for this post is that i couldn 
see many posts abt our own Aaneya.. and felt very
bad about it...so thought i ll tell out my version....
or rather my heart felt feelings about this first ever
mega event of our college...the success of which inspired
me a lot and gave us all another big reason to feel proud
about....here it goes......


"V TEACHERS AND STUDENTS OF THIS INSTITUTION HAVE NOTHING TO LOOSE.....BUT V WILL FACE EACH HURDLE WITH A WILL TO WIN...." were the words which unleashed the fire and set stage for a three day mega event Aagneya 08 .....the words were given by none other than our beloved principal at the inaugural ceremony ....which set our minds ignited....and the fire blazing high for the days which followed....the spirited words were in reply to the pains and challenges faced by GECIANS for the past 2 months during the making of the technocultural extravaganza.....a race which we can now be proud of winning in style....the challenges were like sand dunes ...the wind of fate putting new ones in place and they seemed waiting for us each time in the path ahead... or like jigsaw puzzles with just a couple of pieces which never fitted in place......it is ironical that one of the main events had the name Ultimate challenge.....and wasnt even near to a challenge when compared to the ones faced by our army...... one of the smallest yet the strongest in town....just handful yet capable of moving mountains.....and thats what v showed v can....a herculian task it was...no doubt...especially, when u r starting from scratch .....,when there is neither reputation nor money power to set u sailing in the long journey to success....but just a piece of log and a pair of broken oars..... and an added bonus that v had never "seen the sea"....yet v could arrive at the right land...and our target was accomplished....2 months of sweat and tears paid off as a grand climax.....much more grand than v ever dreamt of....The venue, nishagandhi was in full bloom for 3 days…or nights rather…..and all eyes were on the ever glowing stage…


The events kicked off with a brief inaugural ceremony followed by a family night …..an inhouse entertainment program aimed at entertaining families and faculties of our students respecting the importance of family and teachers to any man….The RAAGASHILA(rockshow) followed which erupted the adrenaline within and there were screams of excitement all around…..
The second night began with ALANKARA(glitz fashion) which showcased the new trends in dressing, bringing out ones creativity and dress sense….tradition was given equal importance ….and the crowd was thrilled by this tradition trend fusion……an equally thrilling yet much more dynamic event…..NAATYA(choreo video) followed which set the crowds tapping their feet and clapping their hands with the beats none left blank….all neatly choreographed….With a slight drizzle just before the end of show, the clouds let us know that even they were present for our show….
The final night saw singers performing their best…..in AALAAP(voice hunt)…challenging even the best singers in town…..all their talents were put to test in a 3 round challenge and the audience cheered putting their hands together and appreciating the “sangathis”…..
Every event needs a colorful and exciting climax and this time it was “THANDAVAS “-the fire dancers who made it thrilling during NISAGANDHI(star nite)…these professionals made the crowd gasp with their amazing performance with fire and further with high level acrobatics……..
If all the 3 nights were lit up with cultural events……it was something else that set the days and roads burning…..CHAKRA(FULL THROTTLE-auto show)….and those looking for raw excitement got it to the fullest…..dangerous stunts by professionals ruled the show….with bikes rarely touching the ground and cars taking 360 degree turns as though driving in ice………the crowd hardly blinked their eyes…cos they dared not to miss any stunt……
The 3 day festival of fire came to an end igniting a count down in the minds of every soul towards the same fest next year and spreading the fire of hope………

i beg your pardon ..if that was too short... but u ll need too many pages to bring out all the spirits which each of us ve within us on the event....so grand it was... and i'm sure u guys ll agree with me on that......

This was th same thng tht appeared in ur blog. Expected somethin more. Still good tht atleast someone took initiative:)

Way to go, Vishnu! Glad that you took the initiative.

Aagneya, with its own (at times, glaring) faults, was a relishing experience. At least for me. Learnt a whole lot of things; from marketing tips to managing a 5000-odd crowd with on-stage antics. It was an experience in retrospect, even with its shortcomings.

Comparing Aagneya with other intercollegiate fests, I'd daresay we did a NEAT job, given our financial and time constraints. Everyone, including the participants, enjoyed to the hilt!

Good job guys.
Its great to see that you guys were able to do what we were not able to. Heard that it was a good event, and its a good achievement to have the very first fest that the college as a whole conducted being successful.

Lets hope that Aagneya continues regularly and becomes more and more successful with every passing year.

Keep up the good job.
