The second day of Echoes 2012 – the big bang, the Annual Cultural Festival of the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) kept up the momentum it gained on its fantastic opening day. The Cultural Committee of IIM Kozhikode organizing the event left no stone unturned to up the fun factor.
The day saw events ranging from word games to theater and many more. Competitions such as such as Wordly Pleasures and Gab-berish laid challenges to those fervent fans of the English language who could think on their toes. Toe-Steppers, the solo/duet dance competition saw MIT Manipal grab the top honours, closely followed by IIM Kozhikode. The grand event of the day Curtain Call – the stage play contest, it brought out the artistic best in the participating teams. The plays won over all audience and proved that theatre never goes out of fashion. In this event with prizes worth Rs.28000 to be won, NIT Calicut emerged victorious with their moving play about the perils of the poor and IIM Kozhikode bagged the second position for its offbeat offering.
As fun events such as Treasure Hunt and A Night on Tiles kept the students busy, the best was reserved for the evening – the Bollywood Night that featured popular film music vocalist and member of the band Bombay Vikings Neeraj Sridhar who enthralled the audience by belting out contemporary bollywood hits. The spunky singer and his team kept the audience on their toes and dancing to their tunes. The events of day two have only left the participants of echoes wanting more from day three, the final day of Echoes, which promises events such a Altar of Rock- Semi-pro rock band competition, Ramp-age – fashion show, along with a rock performance by Thermal and Quarter and a talk by Oscar winning Resul Pookutty. The big bang just got bigger.
