Highlights of Yuvaan
Return of the famous Indian novelist, screenwriter, entrepreneur and apna mechanical ka londa to his alma mater was celebrated in dashing fashion by Yuvaan on an uplifting wintry morn where he spilled his secrets on love, life and literature in front of the young and exuberant audience.
Magnificent is a word that often suffers overuse but with this event, it may very well be an understatement.
        When the Internet sensations Yahya Bootwala, Ramneek Singh and Simar Singh of the UnErase Poetry fame graced the stages of Yuvaan'18, emotions overloaded, rhymes blossomed in every heart and forced the crowd of 5,000 to stand and bow to their prowess.
The connection between mortals and the Almighty was never more apparent when the legendary Nizami Brothers with their 700-year-old family legacy took the stage at the closing ceremony of Yuvaan'18 which saw the night getting bewitched by their soulful Qawwali performance.
Judged by the immensely talented and acclaimed youth poet, Diksha Bijlani, Guftagu'18 provided an amazing arena for budding, passionate poets and shayars to showcase their literary prowess and battle it out on stage.
The Human Library adorned Yuvaan'18 with their adulterated tales of prejudices, struggles and victories. They called attention to controversial issues and helped our audience gain an in-depth knowledge, leaving them with a wider perspective.
Having a great time is the easiest when you're at Yuvaan- a festival which celebrates the spirit of living life to the fullest and getting high on your youth. Irresistible Food Stalls, Arresting DJ nights and riveting informal events made sure the crowd had nowhere else to be when the jollification of the year was on at DTU.
