Our search for most influencing and strong personality of year 2013 ended up on Utkarsh Pandey in our personality hunt i.e, "ROOBAROO". Compiled of questions and tasks from all the genres, Roobaroo proved to be a perfect platform to groom one's personality and to express one's inevitable thoughts.

Then we gave students of Pantnagar an opportunity to voice their opinions with unassasible words in Hindi ANTARBODH: the debate competition where it was Kanchan Kumar Kandpal bagged the first prize.

The whole air was filled with serene tunes of ultimately mesmerizing and mind smoothening music in MEHFIL: the artist night.
