Cultural Nite celebrated

posted in: News | 3

Bosco Institute celebrated the cultural diversity among its students in the ‘Cultural Nite’ held on 12 Oct. 2010. The ‘nite’ showcased the colours, sounds, movements and textures of the many tribes in the region. Dances, songs, ‘Pride of the North East’ appearance by students in their ethnic attire marked the celebration. It was a time to feel proud of the rich heritage that this region possesses and each member of the many communities has been handed down. The mingling of colours and designs of dresses, the beat of the drums and the steps that accompany them, and the medley of songs created an atmosphere where everyone just felt good to be what they are – without competition, without comparison …

North East is endowed with rich cultural diversity with about 200 ethnic groups. The region is known for its rich cultural heritage and tradition. Bosco Institute has 56 students pursuing MSW studies – and they belong to more than 25 communities from Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur. A pool of rich cultural diversity and tradition is seen in this small community.

Cultural Nite was organised as a part of B.A.S.I.C programme (Bosconian Association for Social and Intellectual Change).

The occasion was made more lively by the Mising Kisti dance by the young trainees of Karsang Takar – a training centre that transforms young dropouts into social change agents, run by Institution for Culture and Rural Development (I-CARD), Jorhat.
