'Pratibimb 2009' - a huge success
Feb '09
Renowned Italian fashion institute 'Istituti Callegari Mumbai' and VJTI college's national level annual cultural fest, 'Pratibimb 2009' ended with much fanfare.

The fest is unique in its constant effort to promote various forms of art. The theme of the fest being 'Around The World In 48 Hours', several mega events such as Videsi Tadkaa, theme based Fashion Show, UV Light Dance Show, Theme Show, Blast'o'Bands were held in spectacular fashion. "With a crew of about 250 students, Pratibimb held over 70 events on its campus. The festival saw creativity at its zenith," says Namrita Kabra, President of Istituti Callegari Mumbai.

Students were greeted with a massive rangoli which was spread over 10,070 sq ft and covered three-fourths of its football ground. The rangoli reflected the theme of the fest, depicting various wonders of the world. The Amazing Race saw a new- age rendition of the Crystal Maze.

Students had to outplay their opponents and gather maximum points by finding their way and performing tasks. The fest also saw adventure sports like rappelling from the roof of the college and valley crossing that had students strung 20 feet above the ground. The stars of tinsel town graced the event with great enthusiasm including Rakesh Bedi, Sudesh Bhosle, Qasar Padamsee, Sushma Reddy, Rajev Paul, Brinda Parekh and Band Of Boys.

All these celebrations were not without a good cause as 'Jaago Re', the popular youth voting registration movement in association with model-actor Sushma Reddy was present in full strength and the visitors to the festival gave a great response by registering in droves. Just like Istituti Callegari's earlier fests, this fest too was a huge success.
