    Festember is the inter college cultural, literary and arts extravaganza of our college held usually in September. Misconstrued as a “fest in September”, the actual origins of Festember is “A fest to remember”. The fest has college students in South India swarming over to compete for the coveted Festember Rolling Trophy.

    One of the major highlights of Festember has been the pro-nites which have seen celebrity bands come down and rock the campus alive with their foot tapping and soul swaying music. Also on the agenda are the various literary competitions split up between English, Hindi and Tamil along with the cultural and arts events.

    India Quiz

    Are there things that remain that you still don’t know about India? You’re bound to turn up with gold or end up realizing how little you know of where you stay.


    Actions speak louder than words. Silence is golden. Yes, you get the idea… make sure you keep your mouth shut and express yourself all the same at Dumb Charades this year.


    No, we aren’t going to give you a cryptic clue the answer to which is ‘crossword’. One of the mainstays of any English Lits fest, the crossword returns this Festember in its finest form. Try and solve the cryptic clues and have a whale of a time doing so.

    Puzzle Champ

    Calling all brainiacs! Here’s an event that’ll give MENSA’S IQ tests a run for their money. Puzzle Champ is an out-and-out battle of brains that makes you wrack that big brain of yours trying to solve complex puzzles before your competitors.

    This Festember, use your annoying habit of interrupting and correcting people to get some fame and fortune. Speak on wacky topics, as long as you do so in Queen’s English. An individual speaking event.


    Scrabble is the board game that needs no introduction, but here’s one anyway. Use wit and vocabulary to steadily assert your dominance in this game of tiles. Bamboozle your opponents with words whose existence even you aren’t sure of. If you play your tiles right, you might get an elusive bonus!

    What’s The Good Word(WTGW)

    Do such things as bad words exist? Perhaps, but unless you know what the good word is, it’s quite impossible a task, this event. Watch as English devolves into something you’ve never seen before, and try to make sense of it all and turn up with the word everyone’s looking for.


    Here’s a platform to air your views and go down dying defending them. Battle it out with other teams in a parliamentary style debate. Try to break your opponent’s argument down while defending your own.
