Rewinding to the last weekend of January 19th and 20th, 2024, IIIT Delhi hosted "Jashn-e-Odyssey 2024." I had the pleasure of being there, and now it's time to spill the beans on this fantastic experience. Here is all that happened:

Before going, I had heard a lot about how Odyssey is one of the best fests in Delhi. My expectations were quite high, and none of them were broken.

There were many events taking place simultaneously, and in this post, I will be highlighting a few of them.

Although the crowd was initially a bit mismanaged, everything was cured by 'Hello Brother.'
