Celebration of Deepavali!
November 11, 2015 was ‘Deepavali/Diwali’, a festival of great importance for many people of our host country, India. Participating in the mood of the celebration, some of the faculty members and students of BCA made a ‘Rangoli’, a traditional Indian pattern and design made on floors usually using color powders. Made right in front of the entrance to the academic block, it sure did attract many admirers and curious questioners.

Workshop for Tibetan Department Third Year Students
A four day workshop on ‘Poetry’ was given to the 3rd year students of the Tibetan Department beginning from November 14, 2015. The workshop was given by Professor TashiTsering of Central University of Tibetan Higher Studies, Varanasi.
The movie for this Saturday was “The way Home”. But due to some technical glitch, it could not download and instead of that, Dr. Pushkal screened “ Ferris Bueller’s day off”. Ferris Bueller has an uncanny skill at skipping classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck out before graduation, Ferrari calls in sick, borrows a ferrari and embarks on a one day journey through the streets of Chicago. On Ferris’ trail,however, is his high school principal, Rooney, determined to catch him in the act. Though the movie “The Way Home” was much awaited for, “Ferris Bueller’s day off” did a great job entertaining the audience.
