Xpressions, the management cultural fest of Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar, one of the biggest Management-Cultural fests across India, is a three-day extravaganza, which was scheduled to take place from 16th to 18th November 2018. After the grandeur of the first two days, XIMB got ready to make the third day a grand success as well.
As Day 3’s events came to a close, the sky grew dim as XIMB grew brighter!
November 18th had arrived and along with it came the highlight of Xpressions ’18, Maruti Suzuki – Colors of Youth, Season 8 sponsored EVC Yowza Ft. Sunidhi Chauhan, a venture by Twisted entertainment and Universal Music India!
With the excitement budding and building over the last 2 months, the day had finally arrived for XIMB and Bhubaneswar to wholeheartedly welcome the exquisite and energetic Sunidhi Chauhan as she became the first female artist to feature in Xpressions.
The opening performance for Sunidhi Chauhan live was performed by Maruti Suzuki – Colors of Youth Season 7 winner, the fusion band – Project Mishram and Season 5 winner, the manager-cum-singer Snehdeep Singh Kalsi. Sunidhi took to stage at 7:3o PM as the crowd waited anxiously, chanting her name in unison. What followed for the next two hours might not be easy to put into words. Her rejuvenating energy, mesmerizing voice and one of a kind performance left the crowd in a trance as she sang a collection of her most popular Bollywood hits. It was definitely a first for the people from the Temple City. The crowd didn’t disappoint either as they sang along as she mesmerized the crowd. The dancing and singing met no resistance for the night as XIMB was the brightest spark in all of Bhubaneswar.
The night ended on a high with Sunidhi leaving us all pumped up and exhausted at the same time, begging for more of her talent. A befitting end to an exemplary three days, leaving us tempted and hungry for more. The bar was raised this year, quite a distance, just making it all the more challenging and exciting for next year.
