Manipal’s Got Talent draws larger participation this year1 min read
Manipal: MAFIA (Music and Fine Arts) club from Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) organised their annual talent hunt show, Manipal’s Got Talent, from October 16-18 at different venues on campus.
Divyansh Tomar, a second year participant from MIT said, “Manipal’s Got Talent is the best platform for Manipal students to showcase their skills. This is my second performance on the stage and I simply love it. The turnover is much more this year and it feels great to perform in front of such a huge crowd.”
Day one of the competition had Jugaad and Relay. Jugaad was a creative event for musicians, where one had to perform a musical piece without the help of conventional instruments, and Relay was an event for art lovers. On day two, there were three events going on simultaneously – a themed collage making competition, a main stage dance competition and an Impromptu event. Hrushi Kothak, an MIT first year participant and runner-up of Impromptu said, “I had not planned on participating in this event, even though dancing is my passion. My friends just pushed me on stage, and I enjoyed every step I did, so the result does not matter to me.”
A main stage music competition and instrumental solo were the last two events, held on the third day. Sanskriti Tarkar, a first year School of Communication (SOC) student and one of the audience, said, “The participants are extremely talented and it will be tough for us to decide on a winner, but as an audience, I enjoyed every bit of this show.”
