Sir Padampat Singhania University hosted Orion’s Night ’12, a cultural program yesterday in accordance with the Freshers’ Day celebration.
The most awaited attraction being the selection of Mr and Miss Personality, the evening consisted of a slew of dance numbers and band performances to welcome the students.
The evening started at 7pm with the arrival of the band ‘Jobless Workers’. The talented and extremely popular band revived old memories with jams like Shaktiman intro song, Vande Mataram and classic olds like Kali Kali Akhein and Om Shanti Om. Following the band were two solo singing acts and two dance acts till the Dinner break.
The program resumed with the same energy and excitement as the night continued and presented the first round of Mr and Miss Personality Competition. The ten contestants went through two question-answer rounds, where in the first one, they had been fired questions at in quick succession for limited time, while in second round, they were asked a single question each, by the judge.
The results, which were announced later, awarded the witty and sharp Nandit Gupta with the title of Mr Fresher and the zealous Suchismita Dey with the title of Miss Fresher.
The night gained momentum with the celebrated hip-hop dance group, ‘Funky Freaks’, giving their best and more singing solos. ‘Colors in Dreams’ and ‘Impulse’ bands concluded the extraordinary night with rough throats and blinded eyes.
For the greedy, DJ Raun led the exhausted audience in a new loop of craziness with the DJ party later in the night.
Once, midway through, mild drizzling caused bemoaning and displeasure amongst the spectators as even the organizers started worrying about the possibility of a ruined event, but probably the Gods were too benevolent to seize the rain within ten minutes. Anyway, all’s well that ends well!
The University is now expecting to cater to a large number of inquisitive students in the following days with the two upcoming Conferences under the banner- ‘Celebrating Knowledge’.
The ‘Computer Science – Theory, Application & Research’ conference and the ‘HR Conclave’ has called for various reputed speakers from across the country to conduct the full-day meet and is being held on Friday, 28th September in the campus itself.
