Yesterday, we had a meeting with the 30 odd housing estates / co-operatives of New Town. We talked about a possibility of holding a Winter Festival in Rabindra Tirtha by the residents of New Town. There was a great response and an Organising Committee was formed to take this forward. It was decided that the Festival may be held between 26th-30th Dec 2012 (5days) where the basic thrust would be to have entertaining group performances drawn from all units - instead of the usual 'within the campus' cultural groups. There was even a talk of staging an one act play by drawing from different areas of New Town. There was a suggestion of having a children section (quiz, sit-and-draw etc) on the lawns of Rabindra Tirtha in the afternoon.
