Hosted by PES Institute of Technology (south campus), Mayaa 2013, the fifth edition of the technical and cultural fest here saw participation from colleges across the city.

Taking off on a light note with Mad Ads for which PESIT (west campus) bagged the first place, the two-day-long fest offered students an opportunity to participate in individual and group competitions. Other events included group singing and contemporary dance, all of which culminated with a fashion show.

The second day saw Battle of Bands where professional as well as amateur bands vied for the top spot. Participants included popular student bands like 1Fret Away, Djentle Symphony, Fantom, Traces and Broken Membrane, the last bagging the prize.

Mock Rock, where participants told stories through musicals, followed next, after which came the Western and Bollywood dance rounds.

The highlight of the day was the Crossroads Concert featuring progressive-rock band Slain performing live with The Choral Riff, a professional choir group.

Apart from the culturals, for the more outdoor-friendly, the fest also had street basketball, football and cricket to offer.

In keeping with this year’s theme of Mayaa, Cinema and Eentertainment, there were screenings of movies throughout, while the decor simulated movie sets.

A treasure hunt and Sudoku had participants racking their brains, others like paper toss, Limbo and Beg-Borrow-Steal tested their capacity to convince strangers.
