NCU organized a cultural programme “A Colorful Canvas: Cultural Extravaganza” on 23rd February 2018. The aim of the event was to bring together different cultures of various parts of our country under one roof in order to highlight diversity of India. As every other occasion in India, this program, too, started with Ganesh Vandana, followed by a vote of thanks by Dr. Sushmita Waraich. She welcomed the parents, faculty members and the students to the event highlighting the importance of such cultural events. She pointed out that today, youngsters try to blindly follow western culture without any knowledge about their own culture. This was also supported by the Pro Chancellor, Prof. Prem Vrat, who, while addressing the audience, encouraged the team for the initiative, and suggested that such events should take place in the future as well. After the inauguration ceremony, the performances of the students commenced. This two hour event comprised of folk dances by students from Haryana, Rajasthan, Assam, Punjab, Kerala, Odisha and Gujarat. Not only students, but the faculty members too actively participated in the event. Mr. Aroop Goswamy sang the well-known ghazal ‘Chandi Jaisa Rang Hai Tera’ in his melodious voice, while Ms. Archana Sarma mesmerized the crowd with the folk songs of Assam and West Bengal. The event was coordinated by Dr. Sushmita Waraich and Dr. Saumya Dixit.
