QUINTESSENCE – THE ANNUAL CULTURAL FESTIVAL – 2023
Adjudged in the top ten list of ‘most sought after’ students’ festival of Delhi University time and again, the year ended with students working towards making the annual cultural festival Quintessence yet again a memorable and a successful event. It was a two-day spectacle held on April 12 and 13, 2023, on the theme “A Stroke of Fervour,” as Quintessence strikes the people with such an intense and passionate feeling that nothing else comes to their mind! Everywhere you looked on campus, you could see illustrations and colorful hangings portraying the theme. The festival was inaugurated by Mr. Qazi. M. Raghib, Art Director, World University of Design, who declared the festival open along with our Honourable Director, Prof. Anupa Siddhu, our Staff Advisors, Dr. Swati Sharma and Dr. Dipjyoti Konwar, and the President of Students’ Association 2022-2023, Ms. Pranya Dutta, who addressed the enthusiastic students and people.
From stage-breaking performances for A’ La Mode by the Fashion Society- Prophecy and Vyam-The Group Dance Competition by Nrityanjali, increasing social awareness with Yatharth- The Streetplay Competition of Akaar to following Gandhi’s vision in Somyata’23 by Gandhi Study Circle, and many more competitions that saw great participation, performances, and events throughout the day. From lip-smacking food stalls to exciting interactive stalls for everyone, Lady Irwin College was decorated, accessories, cosmetics, stationary, etc. Quintessence’23 began with a joyous Bollywood Day hosted by GD Sayal, where everyone dressed up as their favourite Bollywood character and danced their hearts out.
The evening began with the one and only Aseem Sharma, who captivated the stage with his soulful voice, and the night ended with DJ Artist DJ AQEEL, who gave us a thrilling performance by getting the crowd to groove and move to his incredible tracks. The lead artist with his dazzling performance, sent the crowd into a trance with his magnetic appeal and his soulful tracks amidst an unprecedented footfall but under CCTV supervision and rigorous security. Quintessence’23 was a grand success and was organized with the permission from various central authorities. Living up to expectations, the Students’ Association 2022–23 did a commendable job in organizing the event.
There was a fair amount of joy and success among the student body. Our College Director’s consistent support and leadership, combined with the well-coordinated efforts of all the students, Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff, and Hostel Students’ Association members, made this year’s journey a success
