Incident ‘12 – The College Fest to Die For

Sonu Nigam in Concert - March 3rd NITK Suratkal... Will you be there Manipal?

Incident is NITK Surathkal’s annual cultural extravaganza.  An inter-college festival that attracts participants from not only Karnataka but also from all over India, Inci (as the NITKians like to call it) is not just a festival for those who organize it. Over the past few years, Inci has grown…. wait, you don’t want any of that. For all you care, Inci could have been a Yakshagana symposium last year. What you do need to know is what Incident ’12 offers.

Incident ’12 is not going to be just another cultural fest. It’s gonna be a party, and the theme is ‘The End of The World’ (No, we don’t have any Britney song as our anthem. Nor do we have Kolaveri or any of its adaptations in mind). Inci ’12 will also be a sociocultural fest. We intend to not just entertain you on campus for 5 days and send you back. This time, we want you to experience Coastal Karnataka, to appreciate the area in which our colleges are located . We have an initiative called iCare, where we try to create awareness about the underprivileged and differently abled by giving them a platform to showcase their talents during our events.

The website is being updated, and will be complete once all the events are finalised. However, a few links you MUST see are the Workshops on offer and of course, Inci’s unique Beach Events. Musicals (both western & eatern), Promenade and the highlight fashion show, HAUTE COUTURE, will be held as always. Add to that the plethora of quizzes and the Auto Expo, and you have Incident ’12.

A fest to die for, the end of the world party… Call it what you want, the basic funda is that NITK Surathkal is just an hour away and is having the biggest cultural fest in south India.

So Manipal, banniri aanandisiri!

And by the way, Sonu Nigam will be coming down to sing or something, on March 3rd. Cheers!

    • The entry to the fest is free for students. Though it is not open to people other than students, last year some of us went in with our old student ids. They are not that strict while checking. 

      • Entry for outstation students isn’t free! We charge a one time registration fee, which is usually 150 rs every year, which entitles you to participate in all the other events, including ProNites. The tickets are sold separately. 

  1.  However we can’t assure that it will be the case this year. If you do have a student ID, it should be enough though.

  2. Registrations haven’t started yet. If you are interested, please let me know on twitter (@twitter-57922784:disqus ) and I shall make sure each one of you is intimated as soon as registrations start.
