PUNE: The 10th edition of Symbhav, Annual Cultural Fest of Symbiosis Law School, Pune was organised from February 21 to 15. The fest was inaugurated by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
Jaypee Group was the title sponsor of the fest. With 55 events, the fest took a full-fledged flight on February 23. British Council was the official education partner and were involved in the establishment and execution of the SLSP MUN, the TechBiz Quiz, Legal Quiz, Creative Writing and Short Film Making.
With ‘Ablaze’ - the fashion show, War of the DJs, Battle of the Bands, Mr and Ms Symbhav, Group Dance, Football, Futsal and Basketball tournaments as its flagship events, the fest had a lot to offer apart from the legal events which are synonymous to a law school’s fest.
Singh and Associates, an international law firm, lent their support for the Ram Jethmalani Legal Events. The Hyatt Regency Pune, on the other hand, was associated with the fest as the Luxury Hospitality partner and lent its support in ensuring the comfort of the pronite stars that graced the event.
The theme for this decennial celebration was ‘Global Village’, encapturing the principle of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, the foundation on which Symbiosis as an institution stands. The fest witnessed a footfall of over 50,000 students. The college saw contingents from various colleges in and around Pune including National Law Schools such as NLIU, Bhopal, GNLU, Gandhinagar and international participation by teams from New Zealand.
The 10th edition of Symbhav introduced innovations under the Sports category by including events such as Futsal, Footvolley, Sports Essay and Sports Quiz.
February 23 saw a live performance by Farhan Akhtar and his band. On February 24, renowned comedian Varun Thakur tickled the funny bone of the students with his antics as the ironically misogynistic alter-ego ‘Vicky’, following which the crowd was treated to the performance by the band, ‘The Local Train’. On the last day of the fest on February 25, DJs Zaeden and Candice took to stage to play enthralling beats and tunes.
The fest also saw an array of food stalls, ranging from Subway to the indigenous Fantasy Juice Bar.
