    Oasis 2014- A Glimpse of Continuous 96 Hours of Nineties Entertainment Show

    Oasis, the annual cultural festival of the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani is being organized from the 31st October to the 4th November. What started as an annual fun fete has come a long way in 43 years of its existence. With more than 4000 participants from 200 colleges across the country and a non-stop schedule of 96 hours, Oasis 2014, with the theme “That ‘90s Show” promises to be one of the biggest cultural festivals in India. 
     
    What makes Oasis unique is the fact that sponsorship, organization, planning, advertising & troubleshooting, every facet is handled by students, with clubs and departments taking up the mantle for making the fest a success.This year, the inauguration ceremony is scheduled to be held on 31st October which will be graced by the presence of Mr. Sriram Raghavan, a well-known Indian Film Director who has won critical acclaim for movies like Ek HasinaThi and Johnny Gaddar. His upcoming film is a crime thriller named 'Badlapur' starring Varun Dhawan, Nawazudding Siddiqui, Huma Quraishi, and Yami Gautam. The inauguration will also feature performances by the Dance Club, Mime Club and Music Club of BITS Pilani, based on the theme “That ‘90s show” which will surely evoke a sense of nostalgia amongst the participating student populace, who share an ardent romanticism for the decade. To add to this tribute, the Department of Art, Design and Publicity will be showcasing structures made and backdrops painted by its student members which will surely mesmerize all those present.
     
    The highlights of this Oasis would be events like Rocktaves, Tarang, Razzmatazz, Street Dance, Stage Play, FashP and the Oasis Debate. Over 85 events that cover broad categories like Music, Drama, Oratory, Art, Dance, Quizzing, etc. are being organized to cater to every talent that students have to offer. Rocktaves is the most celebrated semi-professional rock performance competition organized at the university level. It boasts of performances from bands like Parikrama, Indian Ocean, Prestorika and Euphoria who rose to fame after participating in this event. Razzmatazz offers college dance troupes a stage to compete under a variety of styles ranging from Bollywood to Contemporary to Hip Hop. For those who love theatre and the dexterity associated with drama, Stage Play is a chance to behold the audience with intricate acting while exhibiting true professionalism in direction. Debaters and orators could try their hand at Acuity – the Oasis Debate and BLAB. 
     
    Professional Shows are highly anticipated events with Farhan Akhtar gracing the stage last Oasis. This year, Benny Dayal a popular playback singer who has voiced songs featured in movies like JaaneTuYa Jaane Naa, Ghajini, Cocktail, and Yeh Jawaanihai Deewani will be performing on the 1st of November. Furthermore, Raghu Dixit, well known for his folk and fusion music will take stage on the 2nd of November. His music can best be described as an amalgamation of Indian Ethnic music and styles from different parts of the world. Working in collaboration with Sunburn, the famous electronic dance music festival organized in Goa, professional DJs are being brought to perform in Pilani. Mysore Nagaraj and Dr.Manjunath, famously known as the Mysore Brothers, are renowned violinists and have performed all over the world, notably at Royal Albert Hall, Chicago Pop Festival, Sydney Opera House, among many others.

  • World Space Week 2014 Celebrations

    World Space Week 2014 Celebrations

    Hello everyone!
     
    The World Space Week is an international celebration of science and technology, and their contribution to the betterment of humanity, held every year from October 4 to October 10.  The particular dates were so chosen because of their significance in space history; on October 4, 1957, Sputnik-1 was successfully launched into the space, and on October 10, 1967, the Outer Space Treaty was signed.
    This year, the Astro Club, BITS Pilani, collaborates with the Embryo Club, BITS Pilani, to bring you two highly exciting talks by the experts in their respective fields, to celebrate the World Space Week. Following are the details:
    Talk 1: Search for Extraterrestrial Life
    Speaker: Prof. Wen-Ping Chen
    Distinguished Professor of Astronomy
    National Central University, Taiwan
    Date: 15th October, 2014,   Time: 8:00 PM,   Room: 5103
     
    Abstract: Is there anyone else out there in space?  This is the question that has been challenging mankind since the dawn of civilization.  Do we have the answer now?  Or, do we know how to better pose the question?  When we talk about search for life in other worlds, what exactly are we searching for?  Where should we chart out for the search for life?  For civilization?  How do we fare so far?  In the process, we realize that before we should be curious of "Who are you, where are you?" we have to ask "Who are we, where are we?"  Let us follow these questions together.
     
    Talk 2: The Lure of Astronomy: Engineering for a better view
    Speaker: Prof. Dipankar Bhattacharya, 
    Inter University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune
    Date: 17th October, 2014   Time: 8:00 PM  Room: 5103
    Abstract: The central question in Astronomy is the origin of all we see around us. This quest drives astronomers to continuously improve the sensitivity and resolution of their instruments, enabling them to look deeper and into a more distant past.  Major astronomical projects for the coming decade include the Thirty Meter Telescope in optical bands and the Square Kilometer Array in the radio band, in both of which India is a partner making major technical contributions.  In addition, India is also involved in the Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory project, and several space-based astronomy missions.  This talk will discuss some of the engineering challenges of these upcoming projects and highlight opportunities for making technical contributions.
    Note: Normally, a sky-watch session forms an integral part of the World Space Week celebrations at BITS Pilani, however, due to the recent unfortunate fire incident in FD3, this year we will not be able to hold it in this very week. We promise both, to hold a session as soon as FD3 is accessible again, and more than make up for the loss of the sky-watch session through these two highly exciting talks. Hoping to see you all there!  
    Thank you,
    Embryo & Astro Club, BITS Pilani
