Yet again on this magical journey, we have more travelers joining in, helping us in creating memories along the way, memories that shall last forever. This journey to those four days of enigma has been further enriched with the flavor of dramatics and the passion to bring about a social change. The preliminary rounds for Nukkad - the street play competition of Spring Fest were conducted in the cities of Delhi and Chandigarh on 26th and 27th October respectively.
Dilli haat was all heated up with the performances of teams from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, IIT Delhi, SRI VENKATESWARA COLLEGE, Jesus & Mary College, Stephens, LSR, Ramanujan College, Ramjas College and others. As expected from a Nukkad natak, people stopped in their tracks to witness this amazing flow of passion. The teams took up social messages like Child Labor, the change to selflessness, ethical treatment of animals and 'janahit mein jaari' among others, the message being sent to all those who were present and to others through the impact that they created on the minds of these few. The qualifying colleges from Delhi are: Ramanujan College, Jesus and Mary College, IIT Delhi and Ramjas College.
The Chandigarh prelims were conducted in the University grounds of Punjab Engineering College. Though this centre witnessed low participation, the determination and message was as strong as ever. The voices echoed through the campus and left a lasting impression on the minds of all those who were present. The teams qualifying from the Chandigarh prelims are - UIET and Punjab University - Hoshiarpur.

These teams will be participating in the final round of Nukkad, to be conducted during Spring Fest 2013 at IIT Kharagpur. Spring Fest welcomes all colleges to come and be a part of this carnival and to participate in the variety of events that we host.
Further preliminary rounds of Nukkad in other cities are to be conducted in the month of December and we look forward to the participation of teams from all across the country. The journey shall grow and enrich with your participation, so join us in this journey, the journey to "Another Night to Live".
