RJ Manav from radio channel 94.3 My FM soon took over the stage. He organised a musical extravaganza, ‘Dawat–e–Music’, where selected songs were played based on the demand of the audience. Besides RJ Manav, various other celebrities also graced this occasion. Sandeep Brar, a Punjabi singer, enraptured the audience with his exhilarating performance.

A total of 6 teams engulfed the audience with their various folk dances, including Bhangra, Gidda and Rajasthani Folk Dance. The hooting and thunderous applause continued as the college’s Saksham Theatre Group performed a hilarious Punjabi skit.
Everyone sat with a bated breath as the most awaited event of the fest, ‘Adaa’ or the modelling competition commenced.
