Gandhaar an annual cultural festival of Cummins College of Engineering for Women which started back in 2000, is held every year during the month of January or February. The primary objective of this festival is to encourage students to showcase their creativity and talents in domains of their interest. The fest is organized by the students of all branches with the help of panel members.
Cummins College will be hosting Gandhaar 2018 starting from 20th – 22nd January this year.
This is 4 days festival which is garnished by an innovative theme every year; ‘Carnival’, ‘Around the world in 4 days’, ‘India’ to name a few. Here’s a glimpse of what actually happens in these four days:
First day consist of inauguration of the event with lighting diya, dance performance by Dance Club of college, Music performance by college band, etc at noon. While the eve begins with thrilling Fashion Show by BE students. Quadrangle is filled with enthusiasm and energy to cheer for their own branch and make the most of the event. Gorgeous divas set the stage on fire with startling theme based fashion show.
Second day begins with inter-class dance competitions where 36 divisions from FE to BE participate and compete to grab the top position. The passion and feelings of exultation surely send chills down the spine! Along with this various competitions like IPL Kurukshetra, Haiku, Treasure hunt and many other keep going with equal interest in campus. Students are allowed to put up stalls and present their creativity. They can sell handmade articles or arrange interesting games.
What can make a day more interesting than having joyful events in noon with cherry on the top, DJ night! Events like Antakshari, Abhijat, Duet/Trio Dance Competition, Snap hunt keep progressing throughout the day. And then comes an eve for which we all look forward too. Bands like Chemical A9, singers like Prateek are invited. The evening is blended with party songs and girls step on the dance floor to show off their dancing skills.
Last day of Gandhaar is Inter-College day and no doubt the most interesting day of all! *wink* Events like Doodling, Sketching, Snap Hunt are followed by Inter-College Dance Competition. Quadrangle flows with a wave of enthusiasm,energy and passion! Cheering for teams is like screaming your heart out! Food Stalls by students as well as outsiders are most welcomed. To end with, a ceremony is organized to appreciate all winners of competitions, awards like ‘Best Outgoing Student’ are given away. A speech from authorities resembles like a pat on the back of those who made this event happen.

Each and everyone waits for these precious four days to get a break from tiresome routine. These days will always have a special place in our heart!
