College Day food fest

The College Day celebrations kicked off to a delicious start  today morning with several regional fellowship groups cooking up mouth watering delicacies. The cooking which went late into the wee hours of midnight and into the chill of the early morning was held together by the spirit of contributing towards the College Day.

The stalls brought the crowds in as they chose what to eat among the labyrinth of choices on offer. It was an opportunity to eat, listen to music and play fun games and thereby coming together to celebrate the 102nd College Day of the UTC. Getting to eat a cross section of food from all over India was a first experience for the new comers and guests to the campus.

Faculty members, students and guests all got together in a spirit of celebration. The food on offer started with idli and chicken curry, omlette, vada and chicken biriyani from the Tamil fellowship. The Telugu fellowship offered puri and a variety of tasty side dishes. The Kannada fellowship put on display spicy pork curry, appam, chapathi and chicken fry. The Malayalam fellowship cooked the traditional kappa (tapioca) with beef curry and appam with chicken stew and banana fry to tame the taste palate. The North East was represented by the Nagas and Mizos. The Nagas mesmerised with their pork momo's while the Mizo's cooked their mouth watering potato fry and sweet corn soup. One could not decide what to eat and where to start. The vegetarians had aromatic dishes on offer too.

The food fest was accompanied by music, fun and games for the children too. The children had a drawing competition and children of all ages tried to put their ideas on a single canvas.
