I WAS A PART OF RAVE, AND RAVE SHALL ALWAYS BE A PART OF ME. No matter what, i'd always wish to witness this fest become much bigger and better year after year.As far as i know rave is not organised merely with the help of sponsors but is actually organized by students as parents would raise their children, and that students will always work with absolute honesty, truthfulness and purity of their hearts to make rave THE BEST cultural festival ever.This very fest was born on 23rd feb,2007.
23rd feb,09:A week ahead of RAVE'09,coming out of the acads block, i saw more than half of the campus was on DPT carpet,Everyone seemed to be in merry mood and looked as if i was in a carnival.There were some games being played on the Basket ball court(on account of rave),students swaying away to RAVE theme(composed by our college students itself),chit chatting and having the tym of their lives.Then Barnala came up to me and said "Golu sir,title sponsor mil gaya, YAHOO! :))".Those words of his sounded like honey to my ears.I hugged him tightly and congratulated him and his team, for the same.I dunno whether it was a coincidence or God's Grace that we got our title sponsor on RAVE anniversary and also everyone started flying high with rave fever on that very day.But,i know one thing,being a founder member(RAVE) i felt euphoric at the way things happened that day and got lost in my thoughts of RAVE'07.
The following week saw gr8 enthusiasm from all students to make the fest a big success and left no stone unturned in the organisation. On D-day my eyes opened to Sun shining at its best as if smiling and wishing us luck.As i stepped down the stairs and made my way towards Audi,everything felt like a newly blossomed flower in the month of May.Everything seemed so nice and lovely and everyone was happy and excited about rave.To my surprise a couple of external participants,not to forget participants included girls as well,had already arrived.Campus guys seemed over-enthusiastic in helping them(girls) out with the registration for various events and also acquainting them with the campus.Many of us bought RAVE Tees and wore them over full-sleeve shirts.This served as a dress code for the organizing team and also enhanced the feel of RAVE.
After treasure hunt and ad making contest in the morning,we had Blind Date later tat day.This event brings with it a gr8 chance to all singles to get hooked up for life,if u win with him/her,and get dumped if u dont;).One gets a chance to play a few games together,dance wid her,have the tym of ones' life and also propose him/her.I really cursed myself for not participating in Blind Date,when i got to know abt the proposal round(for i had to prepare for my anchoring in hasya kavi which reqd shudh hindi,not good at that at all,so took shukla and mandi's help for the same).I thought"ohhh yaar!kabhi asli mein toh propose karne ka chance milega nai aur ye chance bhi gaya hath se :(".
Ab Shaam ho chali thi.aagey ka kuch karyakram hasya kavi ke andaaz mein hi spasht karooga.Jab tak Kavi nai aaye khoob masti kari stage pe(anchor tha na main),Gane gaye,babbar diye logon ne khoob mari meri,(but making a fool out of urself to attract the audience and keep them glued to their seats is a very small price to pay)saath mein sponsors ki bhi thodi masti li.baad mein pata chala ki sponsor front row mein hi baithe the;)pairon tale zameen khisak gayi:).Kaviyon ke aagman hote hi Vinay ne bola naam leke kaviyon ko stage pe bulalo.maine mann mein bola "abey maine shuklaji aur mandi ke saath jo likha hai itna sara uska kiya achaar daloonga?na bhai na aisa na hone ka" Thoda kaviyon ke intro se pehle bola thoda baad mein.order jo mandi shukla ne bataya tha sab ulat pulat ho gaya lekin log khoob hasey aur maine bola mera kaam ho gaya.Kaviyon ki toli ne toh jaise mehfil mein chaar chand laga diye aur log has has ke lot pot ho gaye :).
As the students from various colleges were having fun,we on the other hand were gearing up for the next big and the most sensational event-The Fashion Parade.I teamed up with rauf to anchor this event.Several teams participated in the event and included two teams from our campus too. As the erogenous models started walking down the ramp the crowd went outta control and so did i:).Spectators enjoyed every bit of Fash-P.Standing beside the stage i cud capture every move of every gal that walked down(who cares abt the boys;))After may be 2 rounds,it was as if i seized models' vibes and got electrified and charged up.It did show in my anchoring as we were speaking watever we felt like,kabhi punjabi te kabhi hindi te kabhi angrezi and i had gr8 fun on stage, and the crowd enjoyed it off stage.The best part was the best model award was won by a girl Gulabbo,from our own campus(badi gulabbi gulabbi si thi yaar.toh naam gulabbo rakh diya,dont remember her name na;))The event was a big hit and as soon as i climbed down the stage Vivek sir,Tyagi sir and other faculty members hugged me and congratulated me for such a wonderful anchoring.My friends and juniors too appreciated and praised my talent.i was overwhelmed by their reviews and was flying high in my own success.
The second day was as good as the first.The big event that night was The Dance competition and Miss Shambhavi(of roadies fame and tumhari Bhabbi;))graced the occasion by her presence and....
