Hyderabad, January 09, 2019: Tuesday, the 8th January 2019 saw GITAM Deemed to be University, Hyderabad come alive with colour and laughter as the students celebrated Ethnic Day. Both staff and students came to the campus dressed in clothing to represent their home states/countries, resulting in a spectacular display of colour and stunning outfits.
In the era of modernization and westernization when most of the people are moving away from their own culture and history, events like Ethnic day enable the young generation to revive love and respect for their own culture and history.
Ethnicity plays a major role in how students’ personality is shaped. They were provided with an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of vibrant and colorful India. The whole campus seems to be charged with ethnic atmosphere when a mini India was created with students in their dazzling, colorful, exquisite traditional apparels. A Bengali student enthralled all with her typical Bengali style of draping a sari keeping the “Pallu” loose over her left shoulder with a bunch of keys tied with the knot.
The fest mixed with a variety of traditional games, dishes etc. It ended up with Bathukamma songs and group dances etc.Last Updated - 09 Jan 2019
