Last year, the Jaipuria Computer Club’s annual Computer Festival, Comfest took place from the 24th to the 27th of October. At their 13th anniversary, the JCC took Comfest to the next level, with newer events, more teams, and an entertainment evening, featuring top performers of the country.
A total of 53 teams from all over the country and abroad took part in Comfest which is one of India’s biggest school-level student organized festival. The JCC comply with the norm that a jack of all trades can certainly be a master of each. Comfest serves as a podium to display students’ far-flung talents.The members of JCC are responsible for every activity, from the events, management, hospitality to fund collections
and showcase utmost diligence and precision in making the event a success. The JCC core team is led by Mr. Manish Seksaria, an omnipresent enthusiast who refuses to accept anything but an impetus.
The first day of this four day extravaganza started off with a fete, ‘Roll Camera, Action!’, where the participating schools had to set up photo booths and display their team’s creative talents. This was followed by the electrifying cultural , entertainment evening that featured the nationally acclaimed playback singers Tochi Raina and Aditi Paul, who ensnared people in their melodious tunes. With the spirits high, these performances were followed by an act by DJ Soham Bakshi, who set the stage on fire. With this, the remarkable Day Zero came to an end.
Day 1 of Comfest started with the Opening ceremony. Dr. Abhishek Mishra, the Minister of State for Science and Technology to Hon’ble Chief Minister Mr. Akhilesh Yadav, obliged to preside over the gathering. Right after the event was declared open, we witnessed a flurry of events for the next two days, that also assimilated the fields of Literature and Art.
The competition took off in full vigor. Day 1 and 2 included the preliminary rounds of various events, such as ‘The Season Begins’ ,'Robowars' ,'Graffiti' ,'Tech Talk’ . ‘Junk’s the Punk’, ‘IT Quest’ ,'Tee Splash’, ‘So You Think You Can Solve’, ‘Silent Treatment’, ‘Wiz Pro’, ‘Deeds on Sheets’, ‘Pen A Tale’ , ‘Picsel’ , and ‘J-A-M on H-A-M', which remained the highlight of the fest. We believe that entertainment should be the quid-pro-quo of perseverance. The Assembly Hall resonated with rounds of cheering for Jaipuria school's rock band ,"The Stuck Psychedelic" ,which lightened the ambience .
The final day saw teams proving their mettle in the final rounds of the various events. Post the excruciating hours of diligence,came the most awaited moment for one and all, the prize distribution ceremony which was presided over by Brig. K.B.Yadav. The winners of the various events were felicitated with prizes. The M.G.D Girls College, Jaipur bagged the overall winner’s trophy while V.S.E.C Kidwai Nagar were the first runner’s up.
With this came the end of Comfest13 and the JCC retired a happy lot with the flame of making Comfest'14 bigger and better ignited within them. After all, ‘It’s not about us. It’s about the things we leave behind. It’s about legacy’ .
