What do you really believe in?
Turncoat, held in Interact GB, left the participants in this dilemma as they had to present opposing sides of the motion they were given. Motions ranged from the usage of PR campaigns being a better alternative to military action against terrorism, to the evils of science.
The event was marked by the promptness with which the participants prepared their speech in 2 min and how they could effectively present both sides of the argument.

EASTERN DANCE SOLO
Day 3, the last day of Verve 2016 witnessed yet again a spectacular event in the evening, hosted in the KMC Greens. The Eastern Dance Solo kicked off in style with participants
showing up in bright coloured traditional dresses and danced with delight to the beats. The first slot from 4th semester danced to a fusion of Bollywood songs getting the audience to dance along. Next up, 2 nd semester, grooved to a medley of songs while she incorporated ‘dandiya’ steps in her performance, rocking the show. The next few slots again had a
mix of Bollywood songs and steps associated with the respective songs. It was certainly very tough to decide winners and the judges went about it in an average manner. In a nutshell, this event was a delight to the eye and was one hell of an event.
