What is Utsav?
Utsav is Manipal University’s annual cultural extravaganza – an intercollegiate fest featuring (allegedly) friendly competition between member institutes of MU. Participants are given an opportunity to express their talent in all fields of creativity- ranging from painting, potpourri and debate to singing, dancing and acting. It is held over a span of five days, each day packed with activities from morning to evening, and finally culminating on the last night with the much-awaited Fashion Show.
Practice for Utsav begins weeks in advance. Long hours and sleepless nights are put in by both participants as well as organisers. During the fest itself, students can be seen congregating at Greens every evening in order to cheer on their respective colleges. Five days of excitement, joy and enthralling performances pass by in a flash, leaving everyone already looking forward to next years’ event.
