Today was the first event organized by the to-be-formed Students Forum at NIIT Shyambazar center, the occasion being the 60th year of India’s Independence. Scheduled to be started at 4 PM, the program was delayed due to the incomplete preparations. It finally began on 5:30 PM with a patriotic song, sung by a student. Other songs such as “Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walon”, “Vande Maataram” and a few Bengali songs followed up. A quiz on the topic “Independence” was also organized. Various questions pertaining to the events leading up-to India’s eventual freedom from the British empire were asked, most of which were Greek to me. The last item was an awesome display of drum mastery from Joy who also sang the song “Vande Maataram”. Finally, things wrapped up when the singers, the lone dancer whom I forgot to mention, members of the quiz winning team and the organizers were awarded prizes. At the very end, I was given a special prize for launching my site, where in, you incidentally are.
