These events are a combination of excitement and entertainment. Every year, students from different courses and colleges step ahead to honor the event with their presence, which is a pure sense of joy. We have been seeing an increase in entries since we started. Last year, we received 500+ entries. This year the expected registration for our entries is 1000+. Earlier, we managed two events, but this year we could manage four events.
