The Indian Dance Society of Gargi College- Nazaakat justifies this quote. This society is blessed with amazing versatile dancers. Every single member is an invaluable asset to this team. None of their achievements would have been possible if even one member was not present.
Each one of the members have put their heart and soul to build the society through the years, stumbling and floundering through mistakes and blunders and bring the society into a level which not only Delhi University recognizes and appreciates but also various other universities, IIT Kanpur, NIIT University, IIT Bombay are just to name some.
This year the society’s production was Bengali Folk and was choreographed by Mrs. Rai Ghosh and Mr. Ram. They run their own Dance School in Kolkatta and have more than 20 years of teaching experience. The production depicts the rich and cultural heritage of the state, Kolkatta. The dance is well known for its fervour and beauty and is performed by both men and women.
The Society began the year with an intensely packed schedule and a series of consistently timed workshops, wherein professional photographer Ms. Sukhman Dhillon shared her experiences and gave important lessons regarding technique in photography.
Every year, the society has actively organized multiple Photo-walks, exhibitions and trips to encourage the budding Gargi cohort of photographers Iris also organized various other local trips throughout the year to places such as Chandni Chowk, Jantar Mantar, Dilli Hat, Agrasen Ki Bowli, etc.—walks where the society initiated several theme-based projects which largely formed the body of the work they presented at Reverie.
Each year, Iris participates in the Annual Cultural College Festival – Reverie and displays the massive corpus of work it produces annually.
the street play society focused on the theme “BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE”. Bringing about change in the society has been a struggle ever since humans have learned to contradict, accuse, blame and rule!The annual street play production of Gargi College, JOOTA, a political satire, introduces a person in search of change who finds a ‘shoe’ that’ll bring about the change everyone is waiting for. The person transforms into ‘Jooteshwar’, personifying the ‘Joota’ and gains the support of people to not only fight the elections, but win them too and let the ‘joota’ start the revolutionary change. The question is
‘IS THE JOOTA POWERFUL ENOUGH TO BRING THE CHANGE THAT A COMMON MAN SEEKS?’
‘IS JOOTA A SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM A COMMON MAN FACES?’
‘IS JOOTA RESPONSIBLE TO BRING THE CHANGE THAT WE SEEK?’
KSHITIJ performed at the orientation to promote the ragging-free zone policy of the college. A spoof on ‘Twilight’ series was performed by KSHITIJ as a part of the Fresher’s party that was themed on Halloween. In order to promote new security rules of the college, KSHITIJ performed in the college to popularize the regulations.
"Dance like nobody's watching", a very famous motivational quote for dancers across the world, is justified best by none but Enliven, the western dance society of Gargi College. This society is defined by it's un-inhibition, it's courage to try out everything out there fearlessly. It has built itself through the years, stumbling and floundering through mistakes and blunders, but has come to find a strong and unflinching footing in the Delhi University Dance circuit
Enliven takes it's strength from it's relentless and tremendously hard working team members, be it the new members who put in everything they had into the team to the senior members who have been working extremely hard for many years now. Every single member is an invaluable asset to this team. None of their achievements would have been possible if even one member was not present. Their solid partnership has proven to be nothing but beneficial for the society. They started out as a team and remained a team throughout the year despite all the hiccups. They are the ones who held the team together and did not let go.
Here's wishing Enliven good luck for it's future endeavours, and may it see many more successful years.
