Mood I strikes right notes on Day 1

Mumbai: The mood was set and thousands of students from across the country had taken their place at IIT Bombay’s openair theatre on Monday evening. The attraction was singing sensation Asha Bhosle’s performance on the first day of the institute’s annual festival Mood Indigo.
Coming to the same stage after almost two decades, Bhosle had the audience enthralled. Dressed in a dark blue saree, she said, “I can’t believe I can still draw such a great and young crowd at this age. The best part is that youngsters remember the lyrics of all the old songs.”
Accompanying her on stage was singer Kishore Kumar’s son, Amit Kumar, who started the show with ‘Bachna aye haseeno’, captivating the audience immediately. Songs such as ‘Aaj Ki Raat’, ‘Tu Hai Wohi’ and ‘Aaja Aaja’ followed and the concert went on till 10 at night.
While the evening was packed with music, the day was filled with fun-filled activities. A number of boys gathered at the main building area of the IIT-B campus, which was hosting an exhibition of Harley Davidson motorcycles. “Mood I always has something new to offer and this encourages more and more students to take part in as many activities as possible,” said Suhas Raval, who had come from Jaipur with his college friends.
With the winter holidays on, most IITians were away on holidays, making room for students from other states. “At any given point, more than 20,000 students are attending the festival. And this is just the minimum number,” Tarun Meena, a first-year student of IIT-B.
Other highlights on day one of the festival included street magic shows, a fashion show by designer Wendell Rodricks, bookstands, an interactive session with historian Ramchandra Guha.
Another eye-catcher was a one-man band from Croatia, who will continue performing at IIT-B until the festival ends on December 23. The festival is open to all college-goers carrying their identity cards.
