The North East Cell of Kirori Mal College celebrated its annual cultural fest, “8thnicia” on 31st March 2018. Unlike ever seen before the event had various assets to display with their roots embedded to their very own home states.
The morning session constituted of a seminar addressed by Dr. Moirangthem Kennedy Singh on ‘Arrested Development in the North-East’ which was a grand success. The event was followed by the evening session mainly focused on the cultural grounds. The library lawn where the evening session was conducted was lushly decorated by the members of the North East Cell with a grand stage as the cynosure and various food and game stalls on the sides. A photo exhibition by a Gurgaon based freelance photographer Mr. Lokesh Dang with the theme “Don’t Call Me Chinky” was also showcased.
The cultural event was set off with an opening speech by Dr. M Ramananda Singh, convener of the North East Cell, and followed by exotic performances from the North East Cells of various colleges of the University of Delhi. Various graceful and astonishing dances and soothing melodies from the students made a huge crowd gather. But the core idea that made the event successful was the thought of being home away from home and the dedication and labor put forward by the members of the North East Cell and the support it got from the college, teachers, and the people in general.
