On a cold chilly, afternoon, the IIT Delhi Center came alive with excited laughter and zealous joy, as they were gearing up for the Republic Day celebrations.
The festivities began with a speech by the Principal of Kendriya Vidyalaya, which was followed by a talk by our Executive Director Ms Dilruba Kalsi.
The stage performances included a solo dance performance along with an interesting Republic day rap, by one of the students. The highlight of the function was the lively dance performance by our Adult Literacy Program women.
The audience was enthralled by their graceful movements. It was a memorable evening for one and all.
