Introduction to the cultural fest
Chitkara University , Himachal Pradesh, witnessed its 3rd annual cultural festival , ALGORITHM-2012.It took place on the 16th – 17th of march, 2012 . The theme was–APOCALYPSE – 2012, with a tag line "why so serious??". This theme was decided by the organizing committee of the university. As it has been predicted that 2012 will be the year when' the earth will come to an end and life will perish', the students thought why not celebrate life and live it to the fullest if these are the so called ' the last few days of our lives ??'
Preparing for events
The fresh season, spring was at its high spirits and so were the students present in the fest. The fest included various events ranging from dancing to singing, acting to mimicry, creative events to fun events, and many more events to keep all the students busy in participating in one or the other event. Having a range of around 40 different events gives an opportunity to everyone in finding something of their own interest. Everyone explores what can be achieved by using their talent in the right direction. All the events had been organized by the students who were experts in their respective fields . Renowned judges were invited to judge these events so that no biased decisions were made.
Formation of teams

The First Inter -University Fest of Chitkara University
As the Himachal Pradesh campus of Chitkara University is just 3 years old, only intra -university fests had been organized earlier in the past. This was the first time Chitkara University decided to increase its limits and for the first time this inter- university annual cultural festival was organized. Chitkara University invited all the other universities in the vicinity to make it an event of the whole community rather than just keeping it inside the university campus.

This event lasted for two splendid days, the students hailing from different universities who won in different events and competitions were awarded with trophies, certificates and cash prizes too. The first night ended with the battle of rock bands shortlisted from the entries from all over the country and the second night was studded with the presence of a star singer, Mr. Harbhajan Maan , who is a great, renowned and reputed Punjabi Singer.He mesmerized the folks present there with his talent.The fest turned out to be very successful and fulfilling for the institution as well as the students.
