TIRUCHI: Over 50 colleges including medical, and arts and science colleges are expected to participate in Festember '05, a three-day cultural extravaganza, organised by students of the National Institute of Technology here from September 9.

According to the organisers, the number of participants will be higher this year owing to their decision to invite non-engineering colleges also for the event this year. Thrust has been accorded to numerous literary and cultural programmes, according to the Students' Association president, S. Babu.

The Illayaraja Rolling Shield has been substituted with the Recall Cup this year, informed the Cultural Secretary, Hrishikesh Kashyap.

The organisers have promised an `out of world' experience for the participants.

Formally inaugurating Festember '05 on Thursday, the Executive Director of the BHEL, V. Gopalakrishnan, recalled the stages of growth of the event since the early seventies, and noted it was ideal time of the year for students to engage themselves and excel in multifarious extra-curricular activities.

The NIT Director (in-charge), P. Subramanian, saw in the organisational ability of the students their state of readiness to face challenges in the competitive professional world. Leadership qualities, teamwork and emotional stability are essential for succeeding in career, he explained.

The Dean, M. Subbiah, said the event was a forum for showcasing creative talents.
