time and most importantly enjoy at the Mela on November 1st, at DCAC.
The word ‘Aadya’ is literally the name of Goddess Durga or means simply the ‘Beginning’. The Mela represents not only the festival of lights but also is a part of the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of DCAC. Preparations are in full swing and A Roaring time is guaranteed to every attendee. In addition to the regular food stalls various NGOs are also putting up arts & crafts stalls. So you
can be assured that every penny you spent is going to lighten up someone else’s Diwali. The major attraction will be the stall put up by Tihar Jail inmates wherein they will put up for sale an extensive variety. Add to that a highly anticipated performance by ‘Sixth Sense’, a band from Army Public School. There will be a high dose of drama as societies from 3 colleges, including DCAC’s very own Parindey, will also be performing. Plus a performance by Dr. Kuljeet’s Atelier Theatre Group. And yes people, A DJ has been organized for. What else ensures good times?
For the talented lot out there, Photography, Poster-Making & Face-Painting Competitions have been organized with Cash-prizes. The teachers & staff members have been an active part of the preparations & have come up with brilliant ideas for stalls with some of them even putting up more than one. The Principal too has provided support and is looking forward to the event with great expectations. But of course any event requires mammoth preparations & comes with its own set of problems. Here for instance, the electricity connection was a massive issue due to the fear of short-circuiting. Also, even though the Mela celebrates one of the biggest festivals of the year, setting up stalls was difficult as NGOs and traders were already booked for ‘Karva Chauth(which is exactly on the next day)’ and Diwali Melas elsewhere. Nonetheless, the students and staff overcame these obstacles and looked into every little detail. The college proposes to turn this event to be a pioneer in kick-starting a monthly event for debates, talks, discussions, exhibitions & screenings as a part of their celebrations & thus a lot is riding on this Mela. The Best part is that the Mela goes on till 5 in the evening, so everyone can come up after their College.
So be there. And have a good time. Make a difference. Just to make sure you haven’t missed out on anything important:
Date: 1st November. Time: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Venue: Delhi College of Arts & Commerce, Netaji Nagar.
