KALAUTSAV 2016-17 (MY/DP)

“KALAUTSAV”, The annual festival of FS, where students show case their artistic talent (Dance, Drama, Music, Visual Arts) which they have gained through their dedication and hard work. The event held on 25th March 2017, Saturday between 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm. We focused upon their Drama skills & helped students polish the same throughout the year. Students were highly exited about their performance. Students performed different forms of Drama, such as One act play, Monologue, Mime, Street play, UV Drama performance & Anchoring. It was indeed a good experience to work with the up coming young generation. I must say that these young learners are really talented, creative, curious, and enthusiastic. I hope, in future we will be able to provide a super talented drama artists to the world.
