Yuva Sambrama, Food Mela a big hit in dasara festivities
Yuva Sambrama and food mela turned out to be a big hit this year in dasara festivities. The events went of well, much beyond the expectation, attracting people in large number.
As this year with the state reliving under drought the authorities cancelled the Yuva Dasara and conducted Yuva Sambrama. The event drew lot of crowd, especially the youth and students
Yuva Sambrama which began with popular beads of songs, being played out by enthusiastic performers at Open Air Theater for week long, drew a large number of students every evening.
Even foreign students from Afghanistan, Lovas in Vietnamese, Mauritius, and youth of 40 countries gave performance, while received a loud applauds from the people. The crowd went into raptures very often after witnessing the programmes. In all, a wide range of dance-drama and music was performed by students of about 120 various colleges.
There was a very special events like hip-hop, folklore, dance, fusion of traditional and western dance, retro to metro, and several other programmes with new theme steal the show. This time seating arrangements were made separately for women, family members and youth.
The other event which draw the equal crowd was the food mela. The entire venue of CADA premises was jam packed with people, often found it difficult to stand and eat.
People were seen standing in long queue, waiting patiently to relish their favourite dishes. As majority of the food items were moderately prices, both veg and non-veg, this was the other attraction for people to taste as many varieties of food they could feast upon.
Traditional food preparations from coorg, Andhra, West Bengal, Kerala and other places were set-up exclusively at the fair. One best feature of this year food mela was provided with handwash basin and drinking water facility. The sad part is lack of cleanliness. The entire premises was littered with waste, creating a ugly scene.
