Three enthralling sessions. Passionate participants. Concerned volunteers. Renowned scholars and an
amazing atmosphere. That was Psychogenesis 2013, the annual Psychology Department Fest of Kamala Nehru College. Themed around “Body Language and Communication”, the day began with an invocation ceremony followed by the release of their first ever official department magazine “Unhinge”, one of the most important events of the day, the audience sounded exceptionally thrilled as they applauded and cheered for their initiative. Lined up next was an interesting session on Body Language and Communication by Prof. Anand Prakash (Department of Psychology, DU). Later in the day, Ms. Maya Krishna Rao from National School of Drama addressed the keen gathering on the Application of Body Language and Communication in theater. The most talked about session began at 12, as the audience geared up to cheer for the incredible illusions by Karan Singh in his session, Tricks of The Mind. Overwhelmed by the response of the audience, Karan Singh said “This is the loveliest audience ever.”

Psychogenesis co-hosted by the Jibber Jabber society of KNC, had some very engaging competitions to look out for, Quizophrenia, Poster Making, Loud Mouth, Debate and Ad Mad competition were hugely appreciated. Talking about living her dream Manaswita Singh, President, Department of Psychology, KNC quoted, “It is amazing how things have turned up, despite of the little issues that came our way, I’m glad we overcame all of that and managed to put up a great show.” The stalls were crowded and sponsors looked satisfied about the number of students who’d turned up to shop and browse through their stalls.

“More than anything else I loved the sessions today. The competitions were of course added incentives.” Said Mohit Parashar, a Psychology student from Keshav Mahavidyalaya. The participants were happy about the way the entire fest was organized. The registration desk was easy to locate and the volunteers were ever willing to help. Ridhi Murari, Publicity Head, Department of Psychology, KNC was extremely happy with the overwhelming response that the fest received. “We made it BIG! We are all very happy about it. I’d specially like to mention Dr. Mamta Jafa, our professor without whom ‘Unhinge’ would have merely been a dream. Also Manasvita, Sadhvee and Ritika deserve a special mention for the hard work they have put in.”

The psychology department generally releases its newsletter every year but this year they took a brave step and came up with the idea of replacing it with a magazine. It has emerged as a brilliant medium for the budding psychologists to pen down their views on various issues ranging from psychological therapies to social issues, from music to jokes.

Cathy Hopkins quote “Don't wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it", was very well acknowledged by the Psychology Society.
