The Majlis Festival
There was festivity in the air once again as BIMTECH welcomed some of the best college theatre teams of the Delhi capital region for the second edition of the annual festival conducted by Majlis – the theatre and debating society of the college .The event , held on March 8th and 9th of this year ,saw competition from many prestigious colleges of Delhi region in addition to the talented in house teams putting up a grand show.The highlight of the first day was the stage play competition aptly named “Ras Milap” was a mélange of emotions, with teams performing genres ranging from comedy to serious drama. The audience kept to their seats from the late afternoon all the way until midnight as each performance was well worth it. Miranda House and Kirorimal Mal College bagged the top spots, beating eight other very talented teams.
The second day began with the street play competition, “Parivartan” which emphasized the importance of tackling social issues. Taking up social causes has and will always be a priority at BIMTECH. The enthusiastic student teams did a ‘calling song’ to call out participants from their hostels to the green lawns where the performance was scheduled. The judges found it very difficult to select the winner from among the top two teams and it was finally decided that the teams from NITS and Bimtech were equally good and hence the top spots were shared between them.
The finale of the two day festival was the rock band performances. Rock Band- Philosophy of Life, whose percussionist Avneesh Asija,is a student of the college, opened for Kaivalya the fusion rock band of MTV Rock On fame. The Kolkata based band Kaivalya left the audience swaying and cheering to their music well into the night. Thus ended the much awaited, Majlis Festival.
“Majlis – The Theatre & Debating Society of the Birla Institute of Management Technology, Greater Noida is a student initiative to promote public speaking and theatre. I got the opportunity to witness the 10 strong plays presented by various colleges across the country and judge the best two out of them. The event was called ‘Ras Milap’ and it truly depicted a mix of all sensitive issues faced by the country in the current context. Touching and sensitive subjects like Mercy Killing, Sodomy in college hostels, Loneliness faced by the people in busy, crowded cities, Writer’s block and alter ego, Woody Allen’s concept of slapstick comedy, the engaging self destructive virtual life and so much more ! Judging the best and the second best was quite a task as the quality of performance, the theme, use of props was almost at par, impressing and enthralling me for the entire duration. I was amazed to see the dedication, the professionalism and the level of involvement of these college kids and was left speechless and moved by the time it got over ! It was indeed the best gift I got on ‘Women’s day’ by BIMTECH (Birla Institute of Management Technology) folks. I felt so pampered and special and so very humbled by their generosity !”

Chat on Chaat -17th August 2015
Indian street food is very famous and almost all of us like to gorge on the delicious and affordable roadside food in India to get the real taste of our country. The mere thought of tickling our taste buds with the with the lip smacking flavours of yummy papdi chaat or bhel puri makes us drool .The street food in India is an amalgamation of various flavors that stimulate the taste buds of tourists as well as locals. In every big metro, you will find all roads and small narrow lanes having at least one such portable food stall. The snacks are prepared right there in front of your eyes. The quintessential North Indian street food, chaat is an all-time favorite It is made of an assortment of crisp, salted, small pancakes sprinkled with various masala powders along with different chutneys (Indian sauces) and a dash of yogurt. For dressing, some grated ginger and some pomegranate seeds are used.
Amidst the semesters that were going on in full swing with students and faculty boggled with classes, projects, assignments and not to forget the forthcoming exams, the Food Conduit planned a lip smacking chaat festival “chat on chaat” on 17th August, 2015 to treat the students and staff of the college. The festival also was a celebration of Haryali teej so the whole campus was decorated in garlands and flowers adding to fervor and colour associated with the festival. Garlands and beautiful flowers covered the swings and special mehendi was being put for girls in accordance with the customary clelebration.
The mess was made to look lively and colourful bright canopies decorating each of the chaat counters and the food conduit along with the Mess team designed a fantastic menu to recreate the magic of a typical Indian chaat festival. From paani puri, to rajkachori, to the all time favourite dahi bhalla, scrumptious papdi chaat and matar kulcha. The entire menu was spiced with a couple of typical desi chinese dishes like Manchurian and paneer fried rice to add to the culinary feast. Students were seen enjoying the street food from various corners of the country and the whole idea of chaat festival seemed to add spice to usual rountine of the bimtechians. Students, faculty and staff members could be seen gorging on several rounds of gol gappas and other favourite street foods. The entire mess was seen lively and was sprawling with people till the very end. A sweet ending to this colourful fiesta was the preparation of the most outstanding rabri and jalebi which was the perfect ending to this celebration. Everyone enjoyed the chaska of street food from Chandni Chowk right in the campus premises amidst a hectic schedule and it was indeed a treat for the senses.
WAR ON WASTE CAMPAIGN-15th to 21stAugust2015
Hunger is one of the most persistent problems in the world today even though the world is producing more than enough food. Every year about 4 billion tonnes of food is produced and out of that at least 2 million tonnes is wasted.The rationale behind this campaign was how we misuse our food resources and take for granted the plentiful available to us. So after the roaring success of the War on Waste Campaign in 2014, the Food Conduit to curb food wastage took yet another step towards this cause- War on Waste 2015.
On our 69th Independence day, the Food Conduit launched a week long campaign aimed at reducing food wastage. Our Honourable Director, Dr. H Chaturvedi, flagged off the campaign and everyone pledged to be judicious about his or her food resources and not waste food.
The week hosted a series of fun activities supporting the cause of food wastage. The students who dumped clean empty plates after each meal were praised for their contribution and were given a WOW sticker-as mark of appreciation and achievement. At the end of the drive, five students who collected the maximum number of stickers were rewarded and were recognized as the heroes of the campaign. The campaign also hosted a competition by the name “Caption Malai Maarke”, in which students had to submit a caption supporting the ‘Say NO to food waste cause’.
Other clubs and conduits like Palette and Majlis supported the campaign with great enthusiasm. Palette conducted a poster making competition with “War on Waste” as the theme and Majlis conducted a “Nukkad Natak” supporting the cause. We even had several volunteers who actively participated and contributed to this noble cause.
This campaign resulted in a drastic decrease in the amount of food wastage. The graph depicts the success of the campaign:
Thus the Food Conduit was able to successfully carry on the legacy of the war on waste campaign and instill into the minds of people the need to conserve a resource that we tend to be reckless about because of it being in abundance.
