Chandigarh, November 7th 2008, Tribune News Service
One of India’s biggest inter-college annual festivals, “PECFest 2008”, being organised by Punjab Engineering College, in association with Vodafone, began with zeal today.
The three-day fest, to be continued till November 9, will see 20,000 enthusiastic students from more than 75 universities across India competing in various cultural, technical and literary events.
The piece de resistance was ‘The Treasure Hunt’ that had hordes of avid code -crackers-- swarming all over the campus in search of their elusive treasure. The MTV team was witness to this keenly contested battle.
At Scrabble, the world-builders descended onto the scrabble arena, while the “sangeetkar” were all ears at the “Antakshari”.
The fun stalls were choc-a-bloc with students from all over the region longing to experience “The Fun Fiesta”, while debaters duelled it out at “CrossSwords”. There was a slice of the PECFest pie for everyone in search of fun.
According to Dr Manoj Datta, director, Punjab Engineering College, “PECFest is the most awaited inter-college festival in the region. It is about celebrating the exuberance of youth.
It will be an unforgettable cultural extravaganza for all the students coming from various universities as they will interact, compete and enjoy with each other.”
