Dhwani, the inter-college cultural fest and competition, hosted annually by the College of Engineering, Trivandrum (CET) will commence on March 16. With a legacy that spans 20 years, Dhwani has always remained a paragon of cultural fests bringing freshness to its narration every year. Over the years, it has become one of the largest college-level cultural fests in Kerala. The 2018 edition of the fest is being conducted on the theme ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, a rostrum for the contemporary and the experimental.This year, Dhwani is being conducted over a period of 3 days – March 16, 17 and 18; and will feature around 50 events, including seminars and cultural performances to be graced by nationally and internationally acclaimed artists. The entire event is divided into five independent programmes, dedicated to five different performing arts at large: Nadanta – the dance fest, Antara – the music fest, Carpe dictum – the literature fest, Dionysia – the theatrics fest and Khelotsav – the sports fest. Under each segment, there are sundry events conducted online and offline. In addition to these, an online photography and a fashion show competition are also being organized.In contrast to the clichés of a typical cultural fest, the organizers are dedicated to providing value to the participants and have organized a series of workshops to provide a learning experience to the lovers of fine arts. A Zumba workshop by fitness lover and instructor Zin Ahana, a vocal workshop by singing prodigy Gowry Lekshmi, a workshop on contemporary music and progressive rock by celebrated guitarist Baiju Dharmajan constitute few of the highlights.
