INDIAN MEET
By Aparna Chauhan

La Trobe University is a home to students from all over the world. Not only the studies but also its natural ambience and multicultural outlook give it edge over others. Students leave their homes and come here with a positive attitude. In order to take this to next step a social gathering was held in the name of ‘Meet n Greet’ on 6th August 2009.

The event was marked by overwhelming volunteering and participation by students and witnessed a large turnout for the evening. The event was hosted by La Trobe University Indian Students Club (LTU ISC) President, Mr. Abhishek Awasthi, who is currently pursuing a Master of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics course. The event started with a small speech by Mr. Murli Thandani who stated about multi cultural integrity and socially active life of students in La Trobe. Then there were series of games like breaking the ice, quizzes in which people were divided into groups on the basis of the month they are born. This enhanced the quest among attending students and allowed them to interact more with people around them. The enthusiasm was clearly visible on the faces as the event turned over from its one part to another and so on. There were also small speeches by ex students who clarified doubts & misconceptions about student life and made them realize the importance & essence of being a ‘La Trobe student’. Many students came forward with their queries regarding living in Melbourne and coping here away from their families and country. Their questions were answered with sheer pleasure.

To add to the zeal there were dance performances, a duet by Deepti and Shahid and a solo by Aparna Chauhan. A comedy play by Tanu and Varun spiced the evening and enjoyed all the cultural performances. The dances made the atmosphere more vibrant. There were voluntary performances too which made the triumph many folds sweeter. The spicy Indian food at the end made it even more wonderful. Plenty of gifts like calling cards, movie tickets, USB sticks, food vouchers, etc. added cheer to the student faces as they got so many things beyond their expectations.

People got to know each other and made lots of friends. They made a mini India away from India and felt like home. All the faces were so pleased and happy. The aim of the event was happily achieved. Thank you La Trobe and thank you LTU ISC.

Meet and Greet … PARTY TIME !

We have been putting in a lot of efforts to get this event organized for you all.
