Saarang is here

Saarang, the finest College Cultural Fest held at IIT Madras, is here (and about to get over too). Their Music shows (or more popularly called the Pro Shows)are one of the best. So far they have brought in Shankar Mahadevan, Drummer Sivamani, Shaan, Udit Narayan (2005), Ustad Amjad Ali Khan's sons (Amaan Ali and Ayaan Ali) (2005), Kay Kay (2005), Guitarist Prasanna (2005) and bands Moksha and Orange Street (2005).

Anybody from Madras or those who have studied at Madras would have certainly heard about this grand event. This event brings in a lot of sponsorship (am very disappointed to see Motorola's absence in the Sponsors list this year) and a lot of talent. The acoustics in the Open Air Theater (OAT), where the professional shows take place are just amazing. They show movies (at a subsidised cost to IITians, so all you needed was a friend or acquaitance who could get you tickets for cheap) every week and I have seen quite a few of them over there.

Here is the link to Saarang 2005.
