The National Junior College (PUC), situated in HRBR Layout, hosted Fiesta 2005, its annual cultural fest. It was a day-long event, packed with excitement and fun. There was a resplendent inaugural ceremony in the morning. The principal, Nandini Nagaraj, formally welcomed the guests and students.

The chief guest was Vanitha Vasu, a versatile character artist of Kannada films who launched Fiesta with an on-screen presentation. She expressed her appreciation of the involvement of the students in this mega event, which had the participation of several other junior colleges.

An impressive rendition of Maha Ganapathi was performed by the college ensemble, leaving the audience spell-bound. The other dignitaries present at the inaugural ceremony were Prof. Nagaraj Reddy, Director, CMR group of institutions; Executive Vice President N. Chandrasekhar and Secretary of CMR trust Jagganath Reddy.

The day's schedule featured eight interesting and challenging events. "Hierography" tested the skill of participants in tattoo designing, based on the theme of ancient scriptures. "Artistic Cocktail" brought out the innovative best with students presenting collages on the topic "Generation Next". "Brain Twist", a quiz on the corporate world, made everyone don their thinking caps. "Show Your True Colours" was a true test of wit and humour.

"Myriad Hues", the personality contest, proved challenging. "Rhythm of the Soles", a group dance based on an A.R. Rahman special, set all feet tapping. "Natty Nut Show", a product launch, brought professionalism and expertise. "Ruler of the Ramp", the fashion show, was the grand finale to Fiesta 2005.

The team from St. Joseph's P.U. College bagged the Overall Best trophy. National Junior College has made a commitment to send the proceeds from Fiesta to the Association for People with Disability.
