City youth express mixed reactions to the New Year celebrations

A sheer waste of the money spent for tickets/passes

New Year Party

The zest and enthusiasm to welcome the New Year was present in every Nagpurite. Everyone bid farewell to 2014 and rang in the New Year 2015 in their own ways. While some rang in the New Year at lavish parties organized by the hotels and lounges with great music, good food and drinks, others chose private closed-door simple affairs to enjoy companionship with their families.

Off course the parties organized at various hotels, clubs and lounges made several pockets lighter. Entry passes at most events were priced between Rs 2000/- to 4000/-. Even after spending such exorbitant amounts, most expressed disappointment with the arrangements and the goodies offered. While some complained about the DJs playing  loud music while the others complained about the quality of food and drinks served

Harshal Sadhwani a Law student from Pune who came to Nagpur to party with his cousins claimed that procuring passes for any event at any hotel was a difficult task. With a lot of difficulty they managed to get entry passes of hotel Pride. He complained that the starters were not served properly. However, he was most disappointed with music played by DJ Tunes, who he stated wasn’t upto the hype that was created. He further added that hotels in the city should not disappoint the young generation this way.

Rishabh Sevlani, a commerce student, attended a party at the Royal Court last night. He claimed that the music arrangements were amazing but the bar counter was not organized properly. Many fights and quarrels took place among the crowd, which made the organizers stop the party half way. Cops had to be called to manage the ruckus. My entire group left the place early to avoid any kind of further inconvenience.

Nishit Sahejramani a city based youth claimed that he attended three parties last night and found Krazy Castle among the best. The safety of the attendees was very well taken care of. Amazing fire shows and performances added to the fun. People there seemed to be satisfied with the party. He then had visited the event held at Hotel Sun-n-Sand. However, he claimed that he was disappointed since no parking arrangements were made. He added that one should not always blame the organizers alone but crowd too should cooperate. He said that he ended the year and the day with a private party at the Elements.

Pranjali Kehalkar a commerce student from the city claimed that she attended a private party at a new joint in the city MIDAS TOUCH. The party was well organized and well managed by the hotel staff. She stated that she had a wonderful time with her friends. The, lively music, fun filled games, delicious food and wine made her day. She welcomed the New Year with great enthusiasm.

Jaspreet Singh Tuteja who attended a party at Radisson Blu said he was welcomed very warmly. He expected some ‘New YearDhamal’ inside, but for a person like him, the entire event was monotonous. However, it surely was a good time for those who enjoy mellow celebrations.

Rahul Bhojwani a student of Tirpude College told us that he partied till dawn at the Underground Club. The organizers had brought in some of the best DJs from Pune. To party all night was his mantra for the day, he added. There was a perfect rapport between the organizers and guest. The ambience and the food were satisfactory. He said he thoroughly enjoyed and had a grand gala time with his buddies.

While, Akshay Kalbande a commerce student was utterly disappointment with the same Underground Club. The music was not up to the mark he claimed. The local crowd was unruly and the food was awful. He claimed that he left the party mid with his friends and enjoyed a party organized in a house. He added that he did not get the value for his money, which he believes was wasted.
