The students of Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology (NSIT) put together the event called Moksha. Initially called DITECH, the change of name happened in 2001 and has stayed ever since. Four days of fun and games, with mega events and prizes being given out almost instantaneously, the festival surely lives upto its name. This year was no different.
Speaking on this at the press confrence, Mr Rajeev Srivastava, the Vice Chairman of Moksha, added, “Moksha means Salvation, from the hectic study schedule. The students have had a great time organizing the fest , also interacting with the corporates has been a great experience.
The festival had events ranging from Junior laughter challenge to Antakshari.
This year the likes of Gurpreet Singh ‘Ghuggi’ and Sunil Pal from the Great Indian Laughter challenge performed. There was a Fashion show, hasya kavi sammelan and a performance by Ali Azmat (of the Pak band Junoon) on the pop nite. Rudra, a death metal band from Singapore, was the headlining act for the rock show.
Dr VK Kapoor, a senior faculty member at NSIT, said that India and Pakistan are brothers, and Ali Azmat and the likes must act like goodwill ambassadors. He also said that NSIT must look to develop itself, being the brand name that it already is and students must grow outside the classroom.
Abhishek Khemka, President adds, “Moksha is for the overall enjoyment of the students, with high degree of co-ordination amongst the various departments, for the party goers, those who enjoy literary events lik e debating, extempore, and enjoyment for one and all”.
