CHENNAI: The air at Shankarlal Sunderbai Shasun Jain College was festive, as freshers performing in activities such as group dance, group singing, mehendi applying contests, paper presentation and even a game of taboo, were at their excited and competitive best. Emoji – Expressions and Emotions, the talent hunt, organised by the college on Tuesday aimed to explore the student’s talent.

Actor and singer Janani Rajan, an alumnus of the college, was the chief guest at the event. Reminiscing her days in the college, she asked the students to make full use of the cultural events in college and enjoy their stay there, for during school days they would have been more focused on education.

With the other events happening in classrooms, the crowd-puller was the group dance performances by students from different departments.

They performed in diverse styles, ranging from folk, with a few Bollywood steps and some kuthu moves that showed the local flavour of the State.

Shedding their diffidence and breaking the ice in front of their seniors and teachers who encouraged their performances, they received a generous  round of applause each time they put up a good show.  According to Rajshree Vasudevan, director, Shasun Shakthi cell and assistant professor from the School of Liberal Education, the freshers not only helped freshers break the ice, but also helped the college to spot the talent that could represent the college at events.

“There will be a host of inter-collegiate cultural events happening all throughout the year and this will be a platform for us to choose the talent that can represent the college in other cultural activities,” she added.
