See you next Year!!


It has rightly been pointed out by Robin Williams in the cult film Dead Poets’ Society, “And medicine, law, business, engineering these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life; but poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for!" Nitrutsav has been the brainchild of many accidental engineers who believe that there is another side to each of our personalities that is seldom explored. As a cultural festival the primary objective of Nitrutsav 2k16 will be to recognize, showcase and appreciate the diverse talents of artists from all over the country. ‘Ad Infinitum’ literally translates into ‘to infinity’. For us, we believe a moment out of your hectic schedules can be made infinite, can be made to last forever in your minds and ours through this conglomeration of people, talents and emotions, from all walks of life.

When words fall short, music always manages to strike the right chords. There are various events such as Voice of NU and War of Bands that are directed towards those supremely talented musicians. Footloose is an attempt at trying to create a stage that is becoming of those dancers and artistes who live by the beat and rhythm. For the trendsetters and illustrious, we have Fashionista, a themed fashion show. Whoever you are, whatever you do, we have something for you. Whether it is the soulful musical evening Maktub, or the high-energy Pronite, or the endless fun events that promise you a gimmick, these three days are going to be unforgettable. Thus, carrying forward the legacy of Nitrutsav 2k15 which was a roaring success, the organizers are proud to bring to you the biggest cultural festival of Odisha, to be held on 5th-7th February, 2016.

With a long list of expectations, and earnestness to deliver, we believe this journey will truly be Ad Infinitum!


As that unique generation of children who have been on both sides of a millennium, our fast declining youth heaves under the weight of the responsible adults that we must become. It takes the blues of college to help us realize how truly wonderful those days of growing up were! Nitrutsav 2k16 wants to take you back in a time machine, to those golden days of the yore. The cartoons that we grew up watching, are no longer aired on television. Yet, they have managed to leave an indelible impression on each of us. Let us take you back to those friends who ensured all sad days ended on a happy note. Sit back in your seats, as we hand over the remote to you, so that you can switch back and forth between Scooby Doo, Dexter, Tom and Jerry, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo, Ed, Edd and Eddy, The Flinstones, The Jetsons, Swat Kats, Samurai Jack, Powerpuff Girls…the list is endless. ‘Nostalgic 90s’ is not just a theme for the fest, it’s a celebration of this generation’s lost childhood and an attempt to recreate magic!
