The city of Navi Mumbai was first introduced to the culture of college festivals when Pillai’s group of colleges found this extra ordinary and entertaining festival called ‘Alegria- The Festival of Joy’. The origin of the term “Alegria” is Spanish and it loosely translates into joy, happiness or cheer. And the vibe of Alegria is nothing short of joy. Alegria is the brainchild of Pillai’s group of colleges’ CEO Franav Pillai and Pillai’s group of colleges was one of its kind to have established a festival of this big a stature and scale. It was set up in a manner which was both intriguing and exciting.
With a theme like ‘Out of the box’, it surely did surpass all the expectations and enjoyed the wide acceptance from everyone. It not only made them asking for more but also the expectations were sky high. Celebrities such as Jacky Bhagnani and Suresh Menon graced the first year of Alegria and were stunned by the euphoria. The campus was filled with creative and queer installations and everyone everywhere was having fun and learning the most enriching skills.
We had top notch musicians such as DJ Suketu, DJ Rink, DJ Dev among others gracing the EDM and Bollywood nights with their talent and enthusiasm. Along with this, the entire campus had a range of events to offer and nurture one’s talent right from singing, to dancing, to literary, performing and
technical workshops. Alegria, in its first year itself, had set a great benchmark and went on to become a rage. It succeeded tremendously and kept getting bigger and better with each passing year.
