From scintillating sounds of the Sur team, to Aks' outlandish performances, and to Vibes enthusiastic and uplifting dance performance- the cultural clubs of SIMS gave it their all- and the alumni were more than willing to (re)participate! The evening culminated in a thrilling performance by Yayati Zende Sir and Chetan Sindhwani Sir who also played a song with Sur.
And finally, this was followed by High-tea under the dome which was filled with an array of delicious food and alumni reminiscing their old memories with their fellow batch mates & faculty and sharing some of their experiences with the student council.

The event was termed mind blowing by the leaders' who participated in the event and contributed to its success.
