New Delhi: A med­ley of cultures and colours marked the first day of Ex­tra Cur­ric­u­lar Ac­tiv­i­ties pre­lim­i­nary trial on Thurs­day at Mata Sun­dri Col­lege. From well-re­hearsed per­for­mances to hastily-com­posed pieces, it was a long day for the judges who went through around 50 par­tic­i­pants in 5 hours.

Thurs­day was the start of the cen­tralised ECA pre­lim­i­nary tri­als, with clas­si­cal and folk dance at Mata Sun­dri Col­lege and creative writing at Han­sraj col­lege.

For some as­pi­rants, abrupt pauses in the per­for­mance be­came a cause of con­cern, af­ter the judges ques­tioned their choice of mu­sic. In the folk dance cat­e­gory, many stu­dents used pop­u­lar pun­jabi mu­sic, de­spite guide­lines against the use of “bol­ly­wood” songs.

How­ever, a large num­ber of stu­dents had sur­pris­ingly pre­sented self-com­posed pieces.

Je­sus and Mary Col­lege also held it dance tri­als on Thurs­day, which will con­tinue till Fri­day.
