Manav Rachna’s Annual Cultural FEST : RESURRECTION
“It is not often that you may witness an event so huge in magnitude that it completely redefines your definition of grandeur and large scale. You may fail to realize that these glittering opportunities do not come through very often in one single lifetime. And it is also a necessity to remember the fact that it requires monumental efforts to go forth and shine in the wake of such life changing experiences.”
The third edition of Resurrection, from 12th to 14th October 2017, was bigger and better in every possible way as it was built from the ground on the sole ideology of becoming Pan India’s largest cultural extravaganza.
This year the events were increased and further planned deliberately in a more constructive manner so as to depict the highest level of professionalism. We had events in 8 different genres and made sure the platform for entries would be as wide and varied as it possibly could be.
The events aforementioned were spread out into 8 distinct categories namely Lifestyle, Literary, Dance, Sports, Music, Theatre, Arts as well as Photography. Each genre had a varied set of events where each of the participant had to measure his tenacity and will against a dominant competition.
This year we had 500+ registrations in all the events from colleges like Ramjas, Hindu, Maitreyi, LSR, Sri Venkateswara College, ShaheedBhagat Singh, College of Vocational Studies, Jesus and Mary college, Kamla Nehru College and more from DU, Amity University, YMCA, Pearl Academy from Delhi NCR. We also had Chandigarh University Punjab.
We made sure that each event was carried out with as much guile and professionalism which definitely wouldn’t have disappointed the morale of the participants.
This year something happened that we weren’t prepared for or rather had any idea of but definitely left a mark in everyone’s mind present there. A German band named SPARROW MISSION paid our campus an unexpected visit and requested to play during one of the ongoing events. They requested to do so since they were working towards a noble cause wherein they were helping addicts into getting a regular working environment by teaching them to make Ukelele(a wooden musical instrument).
This year, we were honored to have Zydec, SaumyaKulshreshtha, GauriSarin, SanjeevDayal, Neha Doodles, AbbasQamar, Pankh Band and more as our judges. All masters of different aspects of the cultural categories. Neha doodles a very famous and known Doodling artist and Instagramer,Zydec, an amazing EDM artist and many more…
The standout highlights of this year were for sure the 2 Pro Nites which saw 2 different genres so beautifully intertwined across the 2 days.

This year as well we had a footfall that crossed that 50k+ mark and certainly established Resurrection as a brand for years to come.
This kind of crowd reception is not generally seen in colleges and universities of this particular region but nevertheless it was made possible at Resurrection due to the sheer hardwork put into the Marketing and overall organisation of this Fest. The Road to Resurrection hence starts around 5 months prior when the organising team came forward with unique ideas to promote the cultural extravaganza. With Sony Extraa Bass Dance Competition and the infamous Rang Desh Movie Cast the most prominent masterstrokes of promotion coming into the recent memory. There was also the Tesoro Hunt, GarnierPushForChange as well as the ever present Flashmob which made sure that the flame of Resurrection burnt strong and high.
All things apart, any Fest is incompetent without the support of Sponsors who put their faith as well as reputation into the hands of these youth for them to enhance. This year as well we had a gracious support in the form of several different sponsors.
- Technology Partner – ComioIndia
- Fashion & Style Partner – Dearc and DS design labs in association with SwatiModo, PNAOrigine and Medusa.
- Chocolate sponsor- Be Lithè
- Hospital partner – Sarvodaya Sector 21
- Food partner – open yard cafe
- Outreach partner- Oh City
- Content partner – ATKT
- Banking Partner – Punjab National Bank
These sponsors with their generous support both physical and economical have played a huge part in making Resurrection2K17 a success.
The FEST enabled quite a lot of individuals to come forth and display their qualities in front of the world, then be it even the organizing team who worked supremely hard to make sure this cultural fest served as an example of excellence for the future generations.
A FEST often carries with itself several emotions that can only be felt once you completely unite yourself with work and it is that point of time that beautiful memories are made.
