Moksha’11, the most eagerly awaited annual cultural extravaganza of Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, is around the corner and all set to captivate the audience. Being organized from 16 to 18 March 2011, Moksha promises to be a non-stop celebration of entertainment, fun and much more.

Moksha is a rare blend of aesthetic, physical and intellectual talents, exploring the diverse forms of expression. It will encompass a plethora of events, ranging from musical performances to dances and debates to dramatics, with thousands participating from various colleges across the country. The festival will provide the best possible arena for students to nurture their talents and display their mettle beyond the realm of academics, thus invigorating and rejuvenating their minds while providing a much-needed break from the mundane and monotonous humdrum of daily routine.

Apart from providing a platform to interact with each other, Moksha 2011 aims to also provide an invaluable opportunity for various companies to get closer to their potential target customers – the youth. As a result, this fest has again been sponsored by the who’s who of the corporate world. This year,, an upcoming social networking site, is the title sponsor, while Cisco is the technology partner, and Food Creations is the food partner – just some of the many companies that have associated themselves with Moksha’11 to captivate the youth of Delhi & NCR.

The festival has something in store for everyone, be it in the form of the resounding notes of music, the vivacious dancers, the glittering and glamorous fashion parade, the adrenaline pumping adventure sports or the death metal rockers. Moksha 2011 will have some of the most dynamic events to ever be held in the national capital.

Moksha kick starts with events like Rouge, the fashion parade, which will attract the city’s glitterati, leading designers and the best looking models, with the likes of Manpreet Brar and Rakshanda Khan to adjudicate. In Mudra, the choreography competition, the magic of lissome bodies coupled with throbbing beats promise to translate into an eloquent evening speaking the language of dance.

This year NSIT plays host to Viatrophy, a death metal band from the U.K. that will be reforming for their dream Indian tour. TNT-Battle of Rock is the inter-band competition which has been the launch pad for many Indian rock bands such as Arcane Deception, Corroded Dreams, Undersiege and more in the past. This year TNT is going bigger with prelims at different venues across Delhi & NCR, and the top three bands will compete for cash prizes worth Rs. 40,000, apart from an opportunity to be the headlining band at Avalanche.

The grand finale for Moksha is the celebrity night – Fahrenite, wherein artists like Javed Ali, Mohit Chauhan, Kailash Kher, Jal, Ali Azmat and many others have left the crowd mesmerized & enthralled in the past. This year, the Pakistani sensation Strings will mesmerize the large crowds in the grand finale of Moksha.

Also, with all due thanks to the title sponsors, the famous kaviraj Dr. Kumar Vishwas of “Koi deewana kehta hai” fame will be returning after a gap of 7 years to NSIT, the place where he made it big.

In addition to all this, there will be a myriad of competitions including cultural, literary and informal events, involving participation from enthusiastic, talented and creative students from all over.
