Lit-Soc 2007-08

As another of the labels in my gmail goes to sleep it makes me brood about the past...

This year was a good year for sharav lit-soc.
We started with a big 35 point haul in fine arts thanks to the enthusiam and talent of freshies. Shweta and Swati Ghosh gave every guy a run for his money.

Then came Choreo Nite and keeping in line with Sharav's tradition of winning Choreo Nite, we bagged the first prize, putting us at the top of the lit soc tally.

Daramtics: At LitSoc Dramatics this year Sharav perfrmed an adaptation of the play "A Little Box of Oblivion" with commendable performances by each actor.

Speaking Events :
Good participation in speaking events was seen this year from sharav
Monoacting saw one of our best actresses Supreetha Jha in action. She secured the 5th position.
I was adjudged 5th in Elocution Competition and the duo of Supreeta and I made it into the finals of debate.

Music events:
LM and WM solo brought in more points to the hostel. Two freshies Aarathi and Saranya finished 3rd in the WM instrumrntalist and Vocalist Category respectively.
We put up a good SHow in LM and WM groups as well.

I would like to make a special mention of the fact that this year 3 all freshie teams participated in Pot-Pourri and one of them even made it to the finals.

Creative Writing:
Initially the change of dates caused a little damping of spirit, nevertheless Sharav came out trumps with its creative articles for an even more creative theme -29th Feb. We stood 5th in the competition only 1 point behind our predecessor. A lot of Freshie participation was seen for creative writing and their efforts we commend and acknowledge today

Fete:

The Big event--- This year Sharav performed beyond all expectations. With a catchy theme and an apt abmience to go with it, it was no wonder when sharav Stood 4th. The credit of this victory goes to a large team of freshies and second years who worked day and night sometimes even without a wink of sleep. This team combined with able guidance and help from 4th years was always headed for victory from the start, and of course with Batman at ourside.

Intotem Sharav stands in 5th 6th position in the Lit soc tally with over 100 points.....and i hope in the next year we go much beyond. Go Sharav!!!!


12th of April was our hostel and the hostel was turned into a Hawaii island with the gals in garlands for snapshots on the RGs*. There were programmes and there were prizes to be given away. There were mock awards and there was the 4th yr dance with the ladies in Sarees. There was the delicious food and the DJ with his beats. There were the hostel nigth videos and the seniors' toasts.

  1. Well, I happened to stumble upon ur blog-icle and what made me read this was the fact that it said Sharav was 5th in Lit-Soc 07-08. A slight correction on this error --> Sharav isn't 5th but Jam is , and I've taken into consideration the date on which this was published. Not that I'm a critic, but I didn't want anyone giving out wrong Google-able information.

  7. This year was a good year for sharav (my hostel - the girls hostel) lit-soc (literary and social activities and competitions at inter-hostel level.
    We started with a big 35 point haul in fine arts (well pray painting and stuff) thanks to the enthusiam and talent of freshies. Shweta and Swati Ghosh gave every guy a run for his money.

    Then came Choreo Nite (the biggest social event, a dance competition where teams are judged for choreography, costumes, props and theme) and keeping in line with Sharav's tradition of winning Choreo Nite, we bagged the first prize, putting us at the top of the lit soc tally.

    Daramtics: At LitSoc Dramatics (well.. theatre play..) this year Sharav performed an adaptation of the play "A Little Box of Oblivion" with commendable performances by each actor.

    Speaking Events :
    Good participation in speaking events was seen this year from sharav
    Monoacting (where the stage is all yours to perform solo for 5 minutes) saw one of our best actresses Supreetha Jha in action. She secured the 5th position.
    I was adjudged 5th in Elocution Competition (honestly, there is not much difference between elocution and monoacting in our insti :D ) and the duo of Supreeta and I made it into the finals of debate.

    Music events:
    LM and WM solo (light music and western music, solo in vocals, and in instrument) brought in more points to the hostel. Two freshies Aarathi and Saranya finished 3rd in the WM instrumrntalist and Vocalist Category respectively.
    We put up a good SHow in LM and WM groups (well its a group performance.. like a band.. light music and western music again) as well.

    I would like to make a special mention of the fact that this year 3 all freshie teams participated in Pot-Pourri (this is like a fun game of dumb-charades, pictionary and some other misc stuff) and one of them even made it to the finals.

    Creative Writing:
    (this si a team event where eachhostel was asked to choose a theme and send in an entry consisting of 2 A2 sheets like a nespaper format with some more specifications. for more details check here. For details of each page: page1, page2, page3, page4 and here )

    (This is like the biggest event in litsoc. Each hostel has to put up a game stall with a theme and ambience and each game shud be made from scratch. we were judged for the ambience and the tech separately. Check here and here for more.)

    12th of April was our hostel day (we have social nights at teh fag end of the year which is like a farewell to all the passign out hostel seniors. We have videos shot of each senior by their friends whch are screened. We decorate the hostel according to a theme. We sometimes have a DJ and party. Food and dance. But the best part is the Rogue's Gallery (RG) where we stick A3 sheets about each senior revealing all teh juicy info and then the toasts when we read it out aloud for everyone) and the hostel was turned into a Hawaiian island with the gals in garlands for snapshots on the RGs*. There were programmes and there were prizes to be given away. There were mock awards and there was the 4th yr dance with the ladies in Sarees. There was the delicious food and the DJ with his beats.
