Techthion 2005

Atharva, Mumbai 19 and 20th September Two days before Techthion was about to start, I heard rumours that a controversy was brewing in the college and the fest might actually get cancelled.

Techtrix 2005

DJ Sanghvi, Mumbai 23-24th September 2005 A forlorn banner that read Techtrix ’05 greeted me at the entrance of DJ Sanghavi. They say, looks are deceptive. And they are right in saying so.

SPACE 2005

‘Aquatica’ was the theme at Space this year. And the vibe at the fest vaguely reminded me of Shark Tale. Sadly, both the level of participation from other colleges and the celebrity qoutient was not as impressive as last year. On the plus side, the Pro-nites were decent.The 17th saw DJ Ryan bringing down the house, while on the 18th, ...
