Cooking for a cause

Tasty tingles

It was a fun-filled day for the students of St Josephs College of Arts and Science recently as ‘Social Zest’, the official student association for the department of sociology, organised a food festival and exhibition to raise funds for the various philanthropic activities that they plan to take on this academic year.

  The zealous students put in their best to organise the festival, which is just the beginning of many such festivals for the college and the students. Taste buds tingled at the sight of the variety of cuisines that were lined up for the students and teachers at the festival. The budding chefs held nothing back to put out the fiesta. 

The platter included a simple sandwich, coconut rice and lemon ice tea, Afghani biryani, ‘sanna’ and pork and ‘shinju.’ Popular delicacies like the momo and ‘gobi manchurian’ were quickly gobbled up. 

There was also a pictorial exhibition depicting women empowerment, social problems (general and specific to India), various cultural and tribal groups in India, Indian and Western sociologists and more. Different bands from the college also performed and played cultural songs. All in all, it was a successful day with cheerful faces and laughter.

 The programme was inaugurated by the principal, Fr Praveen Martis, and was presided over by the head of the department of sociology, Dr Berin Lukas, the co-ordinator of ‘Social Zest’, Maria David, and the vice principal of the sciences, Jacob Abraham.
