What the organisers are saying:
“This edition will be held entirely in the online mode. These unprecedented situations haven’t stopped us from giving our best and once again bringing a plethora of events for the participants and audience. The theme this year is Majestic Melange: Diving into the essence of Bharat, which is to pay respect to all the traditions and cultures that our ancestors have passed down. Our social theme is Virasat: Exploring our culture,” said Abhishek Raj, a third-year student and the executive head (officiating) of Spring Fest 2021.
The planning of this marquee fest has changed a lot over the past few years. Now the students make creatives and websites that are appealing to the eye and attention-grabbing.
“In the past, we were only concerned about how our institute looked during the fest and everything was planned accordingly. At this point of time, we have to plan the designs for the whole year since we need to keep our social media handles active. In these unprecedented times, we have shifted to a completely online model, hence the design becomes even more integral,” said Divakar Chauhan, a third-year student who is the head of events, media and public relations, and also the design coordinator, of Spring Fest 2021.
