Like every year, KIRAN did not fail to amaze us with its extravagant events and the healthy competition that followed from all across the city. Kiran 2019 was a 4day long fiesta with departmental festivals – Kiran Spectrum, Kiran Joule, Kiran Blitzkrieg, Kiran Spectrum, Kiran Systematic Chaos, and Kiran Fiestron under its umbrella. This concept not only created a larger team with a stronger sense of belongingness but also increased the festival’s outreach. It was one of the best Kiran ever with a footfall of more than 10,000 with around 50 colleges competing with utmost glam and determination.

Kiran witnessed a dynamic and overwhelming vibe with busy corridors and competing contingents giving their best for the trophy. The first podium was bagged by Jai Hind College, followed by NMIMS and HR College bagging the second and third podium respectively. The spirit that the festival imbibed within the committees, the scrumptious food stalls & the star-studded appearances decorated the college with joy and charisma.

Kiran witnessed grand names as our sponsors enhancing the glam of our festival. Rangoli Retreat & Koka being the Associate Sponsors. The others included Jeep, Shien , Moha, INIFD , Nav Bharat Times, RED FM 93.5 , Zoop, Union Bank, Mitsubishi Motors, Gatsby, LiveWires, Event Pitcher, etc.

Kiran this year had events that were unique in their own respective ways. More than the efforts it was the unparalleled talent seen across the college circuit which excelled. The theme of the festival BLURRING THE BINARIES was incorporated in our events in a way that would enable the participants to think beyond boundaries while respecting the discipline of the art form.

As a pre-event of KIRAN-2019, the promotion of the Bollywood blockbuster Chichchore witnessed the entire start cast including Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput entertaining the audience. We had an amazing lineup of Celebrity Judges & Guests. To name a few Aasif Basra, Mithilesh Chaturvedi, Jonita Gandhi, Isha Dang , Karishma Chavan , Vaibhav Ghuge, Manan Sachdeva, Sheldon Disilva, Aryan Tiwari, Vivian D’souza, Joshua Chabbra, Dara Singh Khurrana, DJ Zaeden, Farzil Pardiwalla, Nimisha Vakharia & Neville Bharucha.

The entire committee felt nothing short of family in these two months of working together and creating what could be called the most beautiful Kiran we had. Over the years, this festival only gets bigger and better, all thanks to our beloved Principal Dr. Hemlata Bagla who guides and supports us constantly to make sure we put up the best show. Last but definitely not least, the most important role played in making this fest successful is the strong and hardworking Kiran workforce that put their sweat and tears together to make this merriment a reality, led by Ms.Riya Bhandari, the Chairperson for Kiran 2019.

With a banging end, all we can say is Thank you for being a part of our fest and signing off, Until Next Time……
