Tarang 2013-the annual college fest of Lady Shri Ram College for Women promised to be a colourful and exciting medley of music, art, dance, drama, debate and lot more.

Spread over three days from February 8th -10th, 2013 and celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema with a special focus on gender empowerment, the fest was packed with events one after the other, culminating into a mega event in the evening. Day 1 started off with a mesmerizing performance by the Sufi rock band, Veda. Day 2 proved to be the highlight of the event as Shakespeare’s 37 plays was performed by The Royal Sheikh's Spear Company, while Day 3 ended with an amazing DJ Night!

Throughout Tarang, LSR was in a constant state of buzz and enthusiasm, and a hub of zealous students. Arguably, the best part of Tarang’13 proved to be ‘Potpourri-the food fest’. The choices of dishes available were grand and lip-smacking as visitors could choose from steaming dosas, creamy pastas, delicious rolls and a wide variety of delicious desserts which included cheese cake and frozen yoghurt. Several stalls with beautiful accessories for sale, products made from recycled material and photography booths could also be seen at the fest. 

The formal events saw active participation from various colleges, to name a few- SRCC, Hindu, Hansraj, Miranda House and Kirori Mal College amongst others. Colleges participated in the Western and Indian music chapters of Battle of the Bands, Solo Singing, Authors Anonymous (the English Creative Writing competition), Tongue-In-Cheek (a fun English quiz with rounds like crosswords and Pictionary), Yavnika (the Stage Play competition), Nukkad (the Street Play competition), Mudra (the Classical Dance competition), Baila (the Western Dance competition), License to Shoot (the Short Film Making competition), the English and Hindi Debates, to name a few. In the spirit of competition, various informal events were also organized such as a Harry Potter themed treasure-hunt, Minute-to-Win-it and a food obstacle race which proved to be quite popular amongst the students. 

An informative session by well-known feminist, Mrs. Kamla Bhasin and a pottery workshop was also held at this event. 

The response to Tarang’13 was immense! The first-year students of LSR were especially sentimental about their first college fest and Tarang’13 definitely lived up to their expectations.
Needless to say, the event left everyone present there wanting for more.
