Iskcon fest for students begins

HUBLI: Rasa Fest – a five-day inter-collegiate festival for students of Hubli-Dharwad, organized by Iskcon, began here on Monday. The fest aims to give exposure to budding artistes, which will help nurture their creativity besides familiarizing them with the beauty of Indian culture.
The fest was inaugurated by philosopher and astrologer Sri Sri Shyamrao Ramrao Jumnalkar in the presence of Raghavendra S Katti, chairman, MAA Group of colleges and ISKCON Hubli-Dharwad president Rajiv Lochan Dasa.
Shyamrao said that in the world of tough competition it is very important for students to have peace of mind and concentration and programmes like Rasa fest will help in this regard.
Raghavendra Katti said, “In earlier yugas, the lord appeared to kill physical demons like Ravana but in Kali yuga the lord has appeared as ISKCON to kill the demon in everyone’s mind.”
Rajiv Lochan pointed out that there were many educational institutions for making a living but not for making a life. ISKCON is trying to fulfill that gap, which is very important in today’s society. Vedic quiz, vocal music and elocution were held.
