Panache’2012 – ‘Iconoclastic Sixties’ is an Annual Techno-Cultural Festival of Sir Padampat Singhania University, Udaipur, celebrating the underlining nature of all human activities. That is the passion to improvise, the desire to excel which drives us all towards brilliance and distinction.

Panache is all about such Moments! It encapsulates within itself a series of conferences, world meets, workshops, technical competitions, presentations, exhibitions, cultural programs and much more.

The 4-day extravaganza started with a Inauguration ceremony by Her excellency, Governor of Gujarat, Dr. Kamla Beniwal. Starting with a Conference on VLSI and Embedded Systems, Cloud Computing and Mobile Technology followed by Management Conclave proved to be very enriching for students. Then a Classical Dance Performance by Rajesh Sharma and Group and a play ‘Ekla Chalo Re’ performed by ‘The Performers’ written by Dr Laique Hussain and directed by Anukampa Laique, based on the biography of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore were enjoyed by the Audience.

As a part of its Social responsibility, it organized a Blood Donation drive by the Students and Faculty Members of SPSU. Various Events like Prop-Opp Parliamentary Debate, Speech Competition, Debate Competition proved to be a gamut of challenge. We also experiencd art in its most beautiful form through an Eye catching Painting Exhibition by artish Kamal Sharma.

We also witnessed a sense of ecstasy and hilarity in many informal Events like Salad Decoration Competition, Monochromatic Painting Competition, Slate-Creative Writing Competition, Paper Dance and much more. A sudden Flash Mob by final year Students left everyone astonished. We also enjoyed mouth watering dishes and Delicious icecreams at Food Fair from Happinezz’, ‘Chef’s Venture Fast-food Joint’ and The University Canteen.

The day ends with Cultural nights having sensational dance performances and Hysterical ever-rocking Band nights by Rudraksh, Evergreen and Parikrama Rock bands.

The 4 day adventurous journey of Panache Fest ended with a valedictory Function addressed by Dr. Girija Vyas, Member of Parliament, with a lot of reminiscences.

Indeed the experience at Panache’12 is one of those ecstatic Eureka moments which the students would cherish forever. With more events and bigger prizes than ever before, Panache 2012 was truly an extravaganza. 🙂
