Bhasha Utsav 2022
Bhasha Utsav- 2022- Christ University Pune- Lavasa Campus’ very own Ethnic Day. An event that gets to see the biggest of audience.
Christ being a home to many students across the globe, it is on this exuberant day every year that the University gets to see students across all streams, batches and classes representing their ethnicity through their attire. Bhasha Utsav is a way of encouraging its students to take pride in their respective cultural roots.
Quoted by Fr Dr Jossy P George, “One of the most striking features of our University is the fact that we have students coming from all 29 states of India, and even outside of it.”
With various cultural performances by the Universities very own dance and music teams, Ethnic day is celebrated with much colour and joy.
Starting with Kalaarpana (University’s dance team) performing Kashmir’s traditional folk dance, followed by Garba, a joyful folk-dance performance performed on almost every special occasion in Gujarat. Next up was Kuthu, a folk dance and music genre with an emphasis on percussion performed in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Followed by energetic performances of Bengali folk dance as sweet as its Rasagullas and to add further liveliness in the mob, Punjab’s most popular folk dance, Bhangra was performed.
Coming from two completely opposite directions of the country, the SWO brought together three zestful bands; Chendmelum by Ponnan Blues Magic all the way from Kerala, Punjabi dhol by Krishna entertainment, as well their very own Puneri dhol.
To wrap up the event with a bang Christ University’s favourite DJ, DJ Rajan took over the stage to make the crowd groove to his beats once again.
