Jamming, painting, and breaking a leg: Day five of Invictus ’19

MANIPAL: Invictus continued its festivities with its fifth day of the fest, April 15. There were multiple literary and cultural activities that took place in the third edition of Kasturba Medical College’s (KMC) fest, which began on April 11.


Face Painting took place in the Biochemistry Department building and saw enthusiastic, creative participants paint the faces of their partners. In all the hype for what is assumed to be the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as people know it, the topic for this particular event was ‘Endgame’, after the movie which is to be released shortly. It drew out the creativity from painters, inspired by the various superheroes and villains from the MCU. || Photograph Courtesy: Yeshaswini Srihari


Just A Minute, commonly known as JAM, is a speaking event that tests one’s fluency, creativity and ability to speak without any errors. Close to 20 Jammers gathered at the TMA Pai halls and jammed to creative topics that would get one thinking, such as, ‘if people make you sick, maybe you should cook them longer.’ Hormuz Ragina, one of the best JAM Masters in the country, conducted the event for the second year consecutively, encouraging everyone to take part in a JAM session at some point. || Photograph Courtesy: Yeshaswini Srihari
