The college fests are the biggest attraction of Delhi colleges during the months of January and February, as right before the exams student seek some collective actions which will bring together all the students for camaraderie and greater learning and sharing. College festivals are largely planned and promoted as cultural extravaganzas with rich performances by music groups, in addition to other activities, such as games, debates, sports, etc. This year, CHSJ, MenEngage Delhi, Miranda House, OBR and many other civil society partners and colleges want to expand the canvas and bring in issues of gender, social justice and masculinities to the fore.
