The dramatic society of Aurbindo college organised 'PRATIBIMB', an Annual Street play fest on Thursday 19th January 2017. The event took place in the college lawn which lasted long for around six hours. The competition was open to all college students of Delhi University with topics regarding social issues chosen by the participant teams independently. A large number of enthusiastic participants were witnessed.

The competition started with an enthusiastic team of Shaheed Raj Guru's college and continued with Shri Ram college of commerce, Janki Devi memorial college, PGDAV, Vivekananda college and many more participant teams. Every team came up with an issue which is a bottle neck in the development of our society and our country.

The event was presided by 'MOKSH'. The event was aimed to project some of the social issues like 'Manual Scavenger', sexual abuse and youth pregnancy etc. The main highlights of the event were plays like 'lack of women empowerment', and 'dark future of present youth'. Moreover, the presented plays consisted of many such issues which deal with the investigation of rampant and systematic child sex abuse, or similar social issues highlighting the implementation of law and their poor execution by the government.

'MOKSH'  is planning to hold many such competitions as an art form and to convey a message to people who are behind the curtain and never think for the welfare of society. The society has a record of winning several competitions both within and outside Delhi University. “Competitions like these provide overall development of students as on one side they are making people aware by raising some social issues and on the other side students overcome their fear of stage and proves to become 'a performer' which is essential for everybody”, told Sumit Arora, president of the society MOKSH.
