Kannada Rajyotsava Celebration 2021 @ ICAT, Bangalore

ICAT Design and Media College, Bangalore celebrated Karnataka Rajyotsava on 26th of November, 2021. Karnataka Rajyotsava is the Karnataka Formation Day which is celebrated on 1st November every year. This was the day in 1956 when all the Kannada language-speaking regions of south western India were merged to form the state of Karnataka.

Our college organized various competitions prior to the celebration day which included Poster Designing, Rangoli, Mehndi etc. The day was also celebrated as Ethnic Day and the students enjoyed coming to college in ethnic wear. The entire college wore a festive look on that day. The red and yellow Karnataka flag was hoisted in the college premises and the campus was decorated and wore a festive look. The celebrations began at 10 AM with the flag hoisting and the Kannada anthem ("Jaya Bharatha Jananiya Tanujate") was chanted along with our National Anthem. Then, the most awaited event, the drum event commenced. Drumming has been always hailed by people as the most fun part of music and students too enjoyed the drumming part and danced to the beats.

Celebrations are not complete without games. To entertain the students many games were conducted like Tug of War, Break the Pot, Rotate the Wheel etc. After so many games, students needed rest so they visited the exhibition hall. The exhibition was a mini guided tour to the students as it showcased the Karnataka map along with the regions and its specialty in terms of food and culture. Apart from it, there were the pictures of great Kannadigas who contributed their share for the country in terms of literature, politics, entertainment and culture.

Yakshagana, the traditional folk dance form of Karnataka then took us on a trip towards the coastal belt exhibiting the culture, dance, music and song of coastal Karnataka. It was a mesmerizing experience for our eyes to enjoy the theatrical performance. After all these events there was lunch break and students enjoyed the food. Post-lunch the DJ was arranged for the students to dance and the students danced for two hours non-stop and followed by food challenges to boost up the energy of the students which included Samosa eating and Pani Puri eating challenge. It was a fun event as the challenge managed to attract each and every one as the students and the teachers took part in that challenge. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience shared by all.
