Glimpses of Anwesha 2016, the Cultural Fest of IIT Patna

Anwesha 2016 started with beautiful cultural programs on 22nd Jan’2016 in the newest campus of IIT Patna


The secretary to chief minister Nitish Kumar, Chanchal Kumar, was the chief guest at the event. The 1992 batch IIT-Kanpur graduate urged students to become entrepreneurs and look at themselves as job providers instead of being job seekers.

A number of technical and cultural events, including fashion shows, aqua soccer (a soccer competition involving robots) and rocket propulsion (aerodynamically engineered rockets that would fly with the help of alcohol) were organised during the event.



A fashion show, Verve, was also organised where students walked the ramp wearing designer clothes.


Euphoria finished things off at IIT-Patna’s three-day cultural fest, Anwesha, on a high note on Sunday. On Sunday, Hindi pop group Euphoria led by Palash Sen ended the show.


BIT-Patna won the aqua soccer event while Rizul Dhir, an IIT-Patna student, bagged the top prize in rocket propulsion.


An art exhibition was also held where students from BIT-Patna, NIT-Patna, NIFT-Patna and Cimage College put up various artworks, including paintings and clay models amongst other items.


NIT-Patna’s techno-cultural fest entered the third day on Sunday. Kai Po Che (kite-making) and Pechan Kaun (face painting) were the main events that enthralled the audience.
