The event that was held at City Centre here started at 2pm with Muzik Marathon (antakshari) where the hosts conducted three rounds after which, nine colleges were selected to participate in the final round.

The event had several rounds where participants had to guess songs from musical clues and hints on actors.

A few hundred people enjoyed the event and the number rose with each round with the crowd cheering after every right answer from the participants.

Antakshari was by followed by Raagasutra (eastern solo song performance) where students sang Bengali, Hindi and Nepali songs.

Participants sang popular Hindi songs like “Main Tenu Samajhava Ki” from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, “Maula Mere Lele Meri Jaan” from Chak De India and “Tum Se Hi” from Jab We Met.

Nepali songs like “Timi Lai Dekhera” and “Chioso Bataas” and Bengali songs like “Bajlo Tomar Alor Benu” were performed by some students too.

Singer Sayan Chakraborty judged Raagasutra and dancer Aditi Ghosh judged HotStepper, a fusion dance competition, where students performed hip-hop, classical and folk dance.

“I had come to City Centre with my husband to shop but the songs that were being sang at the event were so good that I stayed back and we saw the entire programme,” said Sashwati Ghosh, a resident of Siliguri.

Star Quotient (face of the college) and Mega Watt (music band competition-western) would be held tomorrow, on the final day of the event, organisers said.
