As a crowd of students from 200 colleges trooped into IIT-B for the annual fest, Mood Indigo, a two-floor high thermocol dragon welcomed the visitors, symbolising the oriental theme of the fest.
Around 3,000 colourful Korean lanterns swayed across the campus, on Day One of the festival.
While Korean dancers performed the Korean Bongsantal masked dance, dancers straight out of the Shanghai streets performed the Chinese dragon dance.
To give an insight into the Korean and Chinese culture, events such as tea-tasting, lantern-making, taekwondo workshops, eating with a chopstick, use of Korean post cards, Hanbok-Korean national dress trial counter have been organised.
Celebrating the global experience of the fest, a band from Ireland - Outside Track – performed the tap dance to the tunes of AR Rehman’s Jai Ho while playing the harp, guitar and violin. “We have come up with various events keeping in mind the global theme this year. There’s a versatility to each event, yet there’s something suitable for every participant,” said Dhaval Goyal, events head at Mood Indigo.
Another activity will be twisting, licking and dunking Oreo biscuits in milk by 2,000 IIT students in a bit to create a Guinness World Record.
The three-day fest from December 20 to 23 will have interactive music arena, EDM Night and International music fest.
