Laying out a creative spread

Food Fest

The students of Mount Carmel Pre-University College never rest.

They always need some excuse to be on their toes. Food fests, cultural activities... the college always has something on the cards.

The Hindi Department of Mount Carmel Pre-University College recently organised a food fest which featured the best of traditional and modern cuisines from across the country.

About 42 food stalls were set up by the first and second PUC Hindi students which offered a varied fare from every nook and corner of the country.

Almost every region was represented on the menu. The items ranged from dhokla, nippat bun, falooda, vada pav, custard pudding to khakra, thepla and chicken tikka. And everything was cooked fresh and clean.

There were also the rainbow cakes that caught everybody’s attention and the girls were seen crowding the stall to buy more. Apart from the food stalls, there were also counters offering nail-art, hair crimping, hair straightening, mehendi designs and tattooing. An impromptu discotheque with pulsating lights and music ensured that the girls had a ‘rocking time.’

The food fest also contributed toward national integration with students from neighbouring stalls supporting and helping each other in setting up stalls and organising the sale of their snacks. The fest not only brought out the student’s leadership qualities but showcased their enthusiastic participation, co-operation and integrity.

The faculty and the students had a great time. K Sneha, secretary of the Hindi
Association commented, “Big things always come in small packages. This was one such occasion. Though it was a food fest, limited only to the Hindi students, the fest illustrated that it is not the numbers that matter but the enthusiasm and spirit behind the
venture.”

The teachers in-charge, Meenakshi and Sudesh Patil said that they were really happy with the outcome and proud of their students.
