Guru Govind Singh College, Gargi College, Hansraj College, Dyal Singh College, Deshbandhu College and Motilal Nehru College took part in the extra vaganze.
Another pair of judges, Rohit and Sukant Sharma of the band Slaves of Rock, clearly impressed by the energy around the Battle of the Bands, commented, “The crowd and performances were great. The students have some great musical talent which was nice to watch.”
Among the winners of the competitions, Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Technology won the Nukkad Natak while SRCC was the runner-up. Shri Venkateswara College won the Battle of the Bands. Step-Up, the Western Dance competition, saw the Crunk Society of the Aurobindo College as champions while Misbah of Sri Guru Govind Singh College and Enliven of Gargi College were declared runners-up jointly.
