Diversity Day

The Rajagiri family includes of a large number of culturally diversed individuals who held hands together to bring about the diversity day on 12th October. Rajagiri lit up to welcome the festival of lights and the day adorned with different cultural activities. The programs started with the traditional dance of Nepal, which is a very ancient and unique art form accompanied with music and instruments changing in tune with the themes. The dance revolved around topics like harvesting of crops, marriage, and everyday life in village.

Folk songs and dances are essential ingredients of the traditional Naga culture. The Naga folk songs and dances are romantic and historical, some portraying activities performed during the agricultural cycles narrating stories of ancestors, small incidents, worship and war. Our fellow students performed a piece of this beautiful folk dance as well. Rabindranath‘s akela chalo was also remembered through the students from his hometown Bengal, a state made by Ganges – Brahmaputra delta system, the largest such formation in the world, shaded by the gigantic Himalayans in the North. This region also has rich heritage in North Indian classical Music.

The Maharashtrian “Koli” dance brought the audience energy level to a peak. Koli is the dance form of the fisher folk of Maharashtra. The dance incorporates elements that this community is most familiar with - sea and fishing.  Next came the melodious rhythm of Tamil thivazhte, which is patriotic Tamil song portraying the well-being of Tamil culture.

Apart from the nationals we also on boarded Germans and Koreans who whole heartedly joined the celebration and entertained us with their Music, Dance and Quiz. Some fun facts about Germany was also contributed by the German students.  Koreans stunned the audience with their special “Jimki Kamal “performance and danced to the rhythm of Korean Hit songs. Finally the student community came together dancing to the beat of “Garba”. Rajagiri was glowing with light, happiness and joy the whole night and spread even more love through Ladoos and snacks.
