The programme began with Matka-Phod, which created a euphoric atmosphere all over. The students cheered on enthusiastically seeing the human pyramid take shape. There was a loud cheer as the dahi handi was broken. The celebrations continued until midnight when Krishna-Janm was celebrated. Beautiful rangolis and colourful diyas lit up the ambience of the hostel common room. Sweets were offered to everyone present following the puja.
