Keeping the tradition alive


Keeping the tradition alive

There was colour and plenty of it at the Onam celebrations at the City College, Jayanagar held last week.

 The students did well in blending tradition with modernity. All decked in traditional Kerala attire, the faculty and students laid out a floral carpet.

The day also witnessed some performances from students who sang and danced to traditional tunes. While one student came dressed as Mahabali, a five-member team comprising Tejaswini, Medha, Bhavya Swati and Anagha performed to jiya chale from the film Dil Se and yet another group sang a traditional number titled, Vanji Patt. Vineet, a commerce student and also coordinator of the celebrations said, “Although we have been celebrating Onam for years now but it is perhaps for the first time that we have had a cultural extravaganza of this scale. As most of the students are Keralites they’ve taken all pains to make the celebrations meaningful.”

Talking about the spirit of Onam, Mario Silvester, a first year BCom student said, “Pookalam, an intricate floral carpet, was designed by a team of boys, and girls brought the traditional dishes and sweets from Kerala.”

 Samskriti, the cultural club of the college, was inaugurated simultaneously. The club coordinates dance, music, literary, art and theatrical activities of the college. It doubles up as an ideal platform for the students to showcase their talent.
