Dasara Celebration by SDMites

The Mysore Dasara is Big. For SDMites, it is special with rich experience. The festival changes the monotonous way of life, makes it a bit more colourful with many exciting things to look forward to. It is this spirit that makes the festival so special. The essence of spirituality was in the air. SDMites organized Saraswati Pooja for all the faculty members and the students on campus. Right from decorating the place to worship in a grand manner befitting the occasion to providing prasadam, the students and staff members managed effectively with devotion. The best part of the whole evening was the devotional Carnatic rendered by Dr. N.R. Parasuraman, our Director. The faculty, staff and students participated in Aarti and the entire function was enjoyed by all. This was followed by Durga Puja celebration. Bengalis love food. Also, Bengalis love feeding others. After the Durga Puja, a perfect occasion for the Bengalis to treat the whole college to a Bengali style feast. At the end of the feast the whole college was burping with contentment and licking their fingers. We only hope that the piousness of the occasion is rewarded by the continued blessings of Maa Saraswati and Maa Durga on the students who are here on campus to learn.
