Somani Sambrama concludes with fun and traditional games
No time limits, no hassles of classes. It was pure fun time. Students of Somani College experienced delightful moments on March 18 enjoying with friends sharing new experiences. The event Somani Sambhrama organized by Basudev Somani College gave students an opportunity to explore their interests, inculcate team spirit and build up confidence.
About 22 stalls setup inside the college premises, comprising 10 gaming stalls and 12 food stalls, attracted a lot of people to the venue to take part in the fun and frolic while savouring a tasty bite.
While the games included throwing darts and rings along with card games and several new themes the eateries ranged from ice-creams, cold-drinks, watermelon, burgers, groundnut and all type of chat items. This fair was open to all and attended mainly by school and college students.
The fair needed break for students from their daily schedule of rigorous college life and gave an opportunity to learn how to interact with customers in real life while selling products or purchasing.
Speaking to Express students who were trying to win over new customers to their stalls said that ‘our teachers and friends have supported whole-hearted and we feel happy we had a good break through from our hectic schedule work and enjoying a lot.’
In present generation computer games and cricket are uppermost the minds of everyone, but this college students celebrated their annual fest in a different way by hosting traditional games like Lagori, Chinni Dandu, Kuntebille, which were once played so commonly on the city roads with lot of fervour and excitement. There were several indoor games too, like Chouka bara, pagade, Alli Gulli Mane and many more.
With the onslaught of television and video games these traditional games were disappearing fast. It was a competition with a difference, invoking curiosity among youngsters and nostalgic moments in older generation.
