Deemed as one of the biggest techno-cult fests of the North, the Seventh edition of EXODIA is all set to be pulled off this spring, 6th-8th April, among the serene valleys of the Himalayas, by the Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi.
Right from its inception, the fest has proved to be a great crowd magnet (drawing a clean 3000+ crowd in its 6th gig), and has thus despite its nascency, been hiking to greater heights with each new edition.
A great balance of technical and cultural events and workshops fuelling the competitor, the learner in you - alongside pro-nights with mind-blasting performances by all-known youth icons to groove your mundane, excitement-starved spirits at the end of the day; and not forgetting to ignite and motivate a career-oriented mind, by offering some phenomenal guest lectures by who’s who of the technical and entrepreneurial world, Exodia’s got something in its baggage for everyone.
And all this fun while enjoying the gorgeous, scenic Kamand valley in Himachal; (Did we tell you about the breath-taking hiking and trekking trips the participants get to go on)?
The fest sprawls itself into a wide spectrum of cultural and technical fields. we’ve got a plethora of activities, Bandslam (for all the musicians out there), Canvas (something for the painters), Coutour (Fashion police doing rounds better dress well!!), Groove Fanatics (For the slaves to the rhythm) are some cultural events to name.
When it’s a fest by an IIT, technicalities, we can’t miss. Exodia hosts fiercely competitive Hurdle Rush (A robotics maze maneuver event), Dementia (Competitive Coding Battles), Junkyard Wars (Solve an engineering problem with the Best out Of Waste), and other amazing tech. know-how battles.
Also EDXODIA features the social responsibility program ‘A BRIGHTER TOMORROW’ to stress on the importance of higher education and EWOK(Enabling the Women of Kamand)-a women empowerment program for the folks of this region of Himachal Pradesh.
The sizzling ramp walks and the breath-taking designs amidst an aura of enthusiasm make this an enthralling experience for the participants and the audiences alike.
