  • CYGNUS FEST 2018 - 21st & 22nd APRIL, 2018

  • Every year, the students of Rajhans Vidyalaya eagerly wait for the annual ritual, the Art Fest. However, this year with the support of the Teacher’s Committee, our beloved Principal, our Art Teacher- Arun Awasarmol and the Organising Committee: The favorite event of the year transformed into an intercollegiate festival, Rajhans Cygnus. Students from various schools and colleges participated in the creative and attractive events designed by the united ‘Team Cygnus’. The events were conducted throughout two days which varied from writing to gaming, crafts to title pageants, with participants competing and expressing themselves in full devotion. Not only did the first edition of Rajhans Cygnus go really well, but with this journey even the students in the Organising Committee got to learn a lot of qualities like understanding the participants and managing the events. To put forth everything simply: Two months of dedication and Team Cygnus continually thriving to achieve, is what made The Cygnus’18 an event which students from other schools and colleges look forward to, along with the joyous Rajhan sites.

    21st and 22nd of April became two of the most colossal days of a Rajhan site who put his heart and color pencils on the canvas and legs on the field and their thoughts on paper. Being a start up, it was slow at first but gradually picked up pace and the result was, total and utter enthusiasm shown by everyone in the RV campus.

    Students from various colleges and schools came to participate and the working committee of the fest was beyond happy to be of help to them. The first day of Cygnus was fast paced, tiring and hot. With the scorching heat and a great amount of running around, the students were bound to get a bit tired but that didn't stop any of the volunteers or the organizing committee members to wipe the smile off their face, but happy eyes with joyous smiles.

    The second day of Cygnus, however, was the best one as everyone, even the working committee danced their hearts out and cheered for themselves and their crazy hard work that they've put for this fest. The first year of Cygnus was fun, but it was more than that, it was something to learn from and not to say, to build up new relationships. The students learned patience, being calm at the most panicky moments and being attentive, they also got to learn a little but a vital part of the actual, real world there. They learnt that a flattering smile and few kind words can keep the heat of any argument down. Being part of the first edition of Cygnus holds a great deal of privilege in its own, little, artistic way.
