However that was not the end of day one. Insomnia- an all-night gaming event was a roaring success with students fighting it out in CS and NFS while also trying their luck at Lucky seven. The chess matches saw a battle of wits, while the carrom tables were thronged by the aces. To add to the excitement and keep the cold at bay, there was also a bon fire and an impromptu garba performance around it, which added to the thrill of the nocturnal escapade.

If day one was eventful, day two of the fest was even more power packed with a number of performances lined up from morn to evening. Day two of Audacity  started off with a very unique event- Demystrefy Udaipur where each group of participants had to complete specific tasks at different places around the city. The event saw students race up the stairs to Karni Mata Mandir then gulp down Dal Baati at Santosh dal baati, take a dip in the chilly water at Gangaur Ghat, click selfies at Celebration mall, play ‘volunteer hunt’ in the winding paths of Gulaab Bagh and finally click a picture with the cube at Fateh Sagar. The jubilant winners then made their way back to campus to pick their prize.

The day also saw the finals of the solo dancing competitions which had contestants performing contemporary, hip hop, folk, Bollywood and a number of other dance forms.  The grace of the dancers and their extraordinary performances had the judges and the audience completely impressed and spellbound.

The main sparkle of the day’s events was the performance by Sarod vaadak Ustad
Ayaan Ali Khan & Ustad Amaan Ali Khan along with Shri Vijay Ghate, who complemented the duo with the tabla. The classical event sponsored by Spic Macay started with the lighting of lamp by Mr. Manish Vora, Sr. President & Regional Business Head, Yes Bank. The show was a huge hit with spectators coming from a variety of places. Being a noon show, the raagas played had their own uniqueness and the synchronisation of soft as well as swift music made it worth the cheers for the audience. The aura of the performance was so strong that no one could move from their places throughout the show duration. It was a blissful feeling for everyone to hear such excellent pieces of mesmeric music. The 3 hour show ended with a small note of thanks by the performers and it was the whole student community which went out to bid a bye to the maestros.

The SPIC MACAY performance was followed by the prize distribution ceremony which had the winners of all the events organized during the course of the last two days, receive their prizes.  The last event for the fest was the rockband performance by Parikrama which had everyone cheering and head-banging to ‘Fear of the Dark’ by Iron Maiden and ‘Highway to Hell’ by AC-DC.
