International Day 2014

International Day 2014


The 3rd International Day was celebrated on 30th October 2014 in and around the Central Lecture Theatre. The Office of International Relations and the Ipals organised several games for the campus community and exchange students to start off the evening.  The International Students at our campus had food stalls and cooked their native cuisines like the Japanese Miso soup, German pancakes, Kaiserschmarrn and many more tasty dishes from Taiwan, Italy and France.

After the welcome address by our Dean, International and Alumni Relations, Prof R.Nagarajan, the event kicked off with a performance by the Japanese students who sang as well as played the guitar. For promoting this day, the Ipals came up with an idea of a selfie contest which was to take funky pictures involving the International students. There was a prize distribution for this contest and then was followed by a performance from the German students who played the ukulele.

The next performance was a Lavani Dance which is a traditional Marathi folk dance that everyone enjoyed. There was also a fashion show which was quite popular among the students. The International students dressed up in Indian costumes and showcased the different festivals in the country. The day ended with a Bollywood number from the students entertaining the whole crowd.
