The festival,TechVista ’16 was declared open by the Principal.

 

The energy and excitement in the JIM Auditorium, venue for all stage events, was palpable. The very first event of the day was the Half-a-minute which had the audience cheering wildly for their team members. This was followed by the Turncoat wherein speakers had to both propose and oppose the motion that ‘the shift in audience to Western cinema from Indian cinema is hypocrisy’. Several interesting arguments were heard. Other events were being held simultaneously in the school’s computer labs.

 

The Quiz finals was enjoyed by the teams as well as the audience who were seen scratching their heads. 6 teams battled it out and the enthusiasm of the audience was apparent in the form of frequent applause. Crossword finals another engrossing event had people sweating it out on the stage, working out wordplays and puns. Perhaps the final event was the one which everyone had been waiting for since morning: the gaming finals. The crowd went berserk as the two shortlisted contestants tried to best each other in the game of FIFA.

 

Once everything had been said and done, and scores for all events had been tabulated by a talented team of judges, we began with the Prize Distribution ceremony. The Chief Guest for the evening was Mr. Gopesh Sharma and the Guest of Honour was retired Colonel VikramJaitley who addressed all the students.
