CHANDIGARH,13.91.21-In a dazzling celebration of the Lohri festival, Mehr Chand Mahajan DAV College for Women organised lively events under the aegis of its Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat (EBSB) Club and Cultural Affairs Committee.

Confluence of myriad cultures was brought to the fore as the Ek Bharat Shreshthta Bharat Club organised 'Pehnawa'- a contest entailing the staff members to showcase ethnicity of different states by wearing traditional dresses. The contest was a befitting representation of the spirit of 'Ek Bharat' as the contestants dressed in colourful ensembles brought alive the flavours of cultures of different states. The winners of the contest were awarded attractive prizes. Adding to the festivities, the Cultural Committee of the college organised a cultural programme that included rendition of melodious songs by staff and fun filled games.

Principal Dr. Nisha Bhargava lit the auspicious fire and addressed the staff on this occasion. She appreciated the efforts put in by the staff members who were exuding festive spirit in its true sense with colorful attires. Praying for better times ahead, Dr. Bhargava exhorted the staff to resolve on this auspicious occasion to keep their spirits high in these trying times. The Convener of Cultural Committee Mrs. Deepa Chhibber said that the spirit of festivity has manifested itself after a long period of gloom and disease, and expressed hope that all the suffering of mankind would burn away in today's bonfire. The EBSB Club Coordinator Mrs. Neena Sharma emphasised that today's programme aimed to promote the ethos of togetherness in diversity. The staff participated wholeheartedly in the festivities and enjoyed themselves thoroughly.
