Price it Right, a game, where you need to guess the price, to get the price. It was organized by the E-Cell, and the coordinators were Vikas Verma, Rajashree Behera and Pratikshya Satpathy . The event witnessed a humongous turnout. The 1st round consisted of about 9 different products, showcased on a projector, and the participants had to guess their prices and put it down on a piece of paper. Products ranged from Harley Davidson Bike to KFC chicken bucket. Also, there were 3 bonus rounds for the audience. Based on this, some teams got selected for the second round and the finals will be held today.

And just when you thought it could not get any better, the evening of Day 2 exceeded expectations. The formal anchoring was done by Biswanath Nanda and Akankshya Mishra. It included the inaguration, speeches by the esteemed guests, including the speech by the guest of honour Mr. Sanjay Das Berma.Their words were really motivating. Also there was the choir group from our college who sung various inspiring songs ranging from Yun Hi Chala Chal Rahi from Swades to Baar Baar Haan from Lagaan.

The informal anchoring was by none other than our beloved CET Rising members, Jessica Mohapatra and Sidhant Sourav! Their bantering and jokes entertained us throughout the evening. Both of them were too good!!

Do The Hustle, the inter college dance competition was held at 7.30 on the Xtasy stage. Mindblowing dancers from all over Odisha came to prove their mettle. There were two teams from IGIT,Sarang, two teams from CV Raman College of Engineering, one team from ITER and of course our very own team SRDA. The battle was not easy but SRDA conquered it and won the first prize. The second prize was bagged by The Invaders from CVRCE.

But it was not done yet!! After the fabulous dancers, it was time for the entire college to dance to the beats of DJ Willy from VH1 Supersonic. The crowd was enthusiastic and swayed to the beats of the DJ. And a superb evening was had by all !!!

Stay tuned to CET Rising for the grand finale of Xtasy 2K15!!
