MIT students celebrate festival of colours

March 18, 2014

Manipal, March 18: Some 5000-odd students of Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal Academy of Higher Education celebrated Holi, perhaps, like never before on Monday. Soon after breakfast it was “rang barse” time and by 9 a.m. the students headed for the football ground. No Holi is complete without Amitabh Bachchan’s hit, and of course, plenty of gulal and water colours all provided by the institute. Every student enjoyed every moment to their heart’s content.

This is the second year that Holi was being celebrated in an organized manner.  After the success last year, it was held on a much bigger scale this year. “MIT facilitates the celebrations,” said Chief Warden Col (Retd) CMS Kalakoti.  “We provided the colour, music, snacks (laddoos, samosas) and lemonade,” he said. The student council took the responsibility of organizing the entire show.  It was a memorable experience for all.
