After completing school, we students have completely different life. From nursery to 12th we all are in a disciplined background. In college there’s a new life for all of us.
There are no regular studies and test in colleges like school. We all get some stress-free life though not a free life. At the start of college after 10 days or a month college start organizing different functions.
We all are aware of fresher’s party in which everyone wants to make ever lasting impression on others. Every girl and boy groom themselves to look extraordinarily good.
These are about fresher’s who recently joined the college. Seniors have their own swag of inviting new people in college.
They prepare some dance performances on popular songs and some sing songs, some do stand-up comedy, some are decorating auditorium, some volunteer’s food quota and in organizing event, some do anchoring.
Seniors play an important role in fresher’s function. They give the theme for dressing up before a week so that everyone can choose their dresses or wear them according to the theme.
There’s a title given to freshers ‘Mr. Fresher and Ms. Fresher’ according to their talents like dancing, singing etc. There are also titles like Mr. Well-dressed and Ms. Well-dressed.
After official function, all freshers and seniors can dance on disco tracks, which make a healthy link between seniors and juniors.
After fresher’s party there’s a sport meet in college in which every student who is interested in sports participate to win for their department or college.
At the first day and last day of sports meet there is a ‘MASHAL’ in every college to have a good start and happy ending of sports meet.
This is symbol of respect and dignity. During this period students participate in various events like cricket, volleyball, basketball, football, handball, squash, badminton, kho-kho, kabaddi, etc.
Then in winters various colleges organize their fest, they also invite outsiders to explore and gain knowledge. Every department participate in organizing the fest.
Various dance forms are done by students, street play’s (Nukkar natak) are organized by students, for dance forms choreographers are invited to make student learn from them.
Big superstars are invited to make the programme more interesting and valuable.
Last year Raftaar, Akshay Kumar, Siddhartha Malhotra, Katrina Kaif were invited for the promotion of fest in my college.
These fests are very interesting to attend.
Not only dancing and singing is there, there’s also gaming, painting, writing, poetry, storytelling competitions during these fest .
This fest is a little break from regular days. Fest are for 4 to 5 days in college, which are full of memories and is all about making new friends which help us a lot during exams, functions etc.
Life sometime is very good, sometime very dull and sometime very busy in routine. One craves for something new so a cultural function adds a taste to life.
Dance and songs were prepared by the students on special country songs. Various speeches are given by students and teachers to make a change in youth and tell them the importance of our independence and country.
Various freedom fighters die for us to save this country. To show some famous stories student perform plays. They dress up like some of our freedom fighters and perform play.
Then there is laddoo distribution in whole college as a congratulation to India and its population. Then how can I forget about Diwali Mela, where various item are sold by students which they made them.
Stalls are organised in a straight line, where some sell food, some sell Diya’s and decorative candles etc.
Diwali mela is all about grooming, decoration of college. Girls and Boys wore traditional dresses like Saree, suit, kurta pyjama etc.
There’s a Rangoli competition in every college where each and department and class participate and make Rangoli. Teachers judge their Rangoli on basis of 1st , 2nd and 3rd positions according to how beautiful is Rangoli.
Some students light Diya’s also inside their classrooms and in corridors which make college more beautiful during Diwali.
Then next cultural festival is HOLI, which most people like, on this day everyone is in white suit or kurta pyjama. Everyone brings colour and apply colour on other’s faces.
Earlier there used to a rain dance organized in colleges but it has stopped now because to save water, but still everyone enjoys Holi by applying gulal to other’s faces.
Functions are a part of colleges; every function is celebrated as festivals and every festival is celebrated as function.
Teacher’s day is also celebrated in which seniors of our college wore saree and suit, they dress themselves according to teacher’s dressing style, again we organise dance, sing songs for our dear teachers. It’s an immense pleasure for teachers and us.
We all give gifts and surprises to our teachers as a way of thanks. This time we had contributed 50 Rs. each to bring cake and to decorate class. After decorating we invited our teacher to enjoy and make their day memorable forever.
They enjoyed a lot. They told us some secrets about their childhood, some teachers dance and sing for us and of course we all gave company to them in dancing and singing. Our teachers cut the cake and we enjoyed a lot that day.
Farewell is like last function for the seniors in college. Now it’s freshers turn to make farewell memorable for seniors and this is the time we miss the most.
They organized some dance performances and sing songs for them and give a happy good bye to them and in a hope to meet them again.
Functions are organised in colleges to make some memories so that we will remember them forever in our life.
