Students exhibited their intrinsic talents through folk dance and folk songs. As the echoes of laughter, dance and celebration resonated through the campus, the Teej festivities encapsulated the essence of cultural heritage and community bonding. These traditions, woven with threads of unity and joy, served as a reminder of the richness of our heritage and the strength of our collective spirit. Nail Art, Mehndi and bangle stalls were put up.
A swing was laid down in the college premises to enliven the ancient heritage of this festival which is observed every year in the monsoons as a cheery reminiscence to the Punjabi culture and its ambience by the newly-wedded women who visit their parents' houses and immerse themselves in festive mirth.
On the occasion, RJ ACP Sandy from 91.9 FM Radio City visited the campus. He asked questions from the students about the relevance of ‘Teej’. It is worth mentioning that the festival is also celebrated in other parts of the country wherein it transcends religious boundaries.
