Bits Pilani, Hyderabad Campus celebrated its annual fest, the aptly named ‘Pearl’, from Feb 16-19 2012. This year’s version was bigger and better than ever before, and raised the bar of standards to an entirely new level. The theme was 2-D gaming, and Mario and Pac man helped recreate an atmosphere of nostalgia. The inauguration took place on 16 Feb, and this was followed by a melodious performance by Ghatam Karthik and his troupe.

This set the tone for three days of total enjoyment. Day 1 saw a host of exciting events, among which the classical dance solo stood out as truly memorable. As the graceful dancers paid tribute to our glorious culture, the audience watched them spellbound. The highlight of this day was a rocking Benny Dayal show in the evening. The enthusiasm in the air was infectious and nobody could help screaming and shouting for their favourite songs.

Day 2 saw a number of technical events being hosted in addition to the cultural ones. People came from colleges across India to participate in the paper presentation competitions conducted by the various departments of BPHC. The cultural events saw highly enthusiastic participation, as well. Metal enthusiasts had a great evening with Belgian band Thurisaz.

Pearl reached a crescendo on DAY 3, 19th Feb, 2012. There were events galore, and everyone was in a heady mood. The Robowars event was the easily the highlight of all the technical events, managing to leave the audience enthralled. The hovercraft event was equally good .There were classical music contests and western group dance events, both of which managed to pep up spirits. For the social service enthusiasts, Pratyaya was a NIRMAAN event that saw papers being presented on a range of socially relevant topics. People spent an inspired afternoon in the ‘ASPIRE’ event conducted by CEL. Many eminent speakers shared their experiences with the audience, and Swami Bodhamayanand was exceptional. Uplifting and inspirational, his talk was truly of tremendous value. An ex-Dean of ISB was also one of the speakers, and his talk on the options available to students after graduation was incisive and insightful.

After a hard day’s work, people got ready to party. The fashion show, Glitterati, started and ended before people realised!

And then it was time for the grand finale. Along came Ela Rose and David Deejay with their mind-blowing show. She sang and he spun, and they crowd danced itself into a frenzy. When it was time to say goodnight and goodbye, there was an eerie unreal feeling. PEARL 2012 was an incredible success that created an indelible impact on everyone’s minds.
