Following tradition, Hindu College of Delhi is hosting the Northeast Festival, “NEtym 2014” on 29th March, 2014 to celebrate the diverse culture India possesses in the Northeast region.
NEtym will exhibit this region of India with their diverse social alignments and group identities which produces a high degree of fluidity and flexibility in their domain through its various events and programs around the College Campus. It also aims to forge a sense of Unity and shared belongingness of composite culture amongst the people who hail from different parts of the country. It encompasses everything from history to culture; the region’s handicrafts, food, clothing, literature, contemporary developments and will emphasize on its problems and difficulties through seminars and discussions. The Northeast Cell of Hindu College is still a young child in Delhi University, yet its growth is something remarkable. Established in 2011, it is a society which caters to the needs of the students hailing from the North Eastern region of India. Early last year in 2013 it organized a festival entitled NEtym, which ideally rejoiced the Northeast region of our country, a geographical entity blessed with rare and breathtaking beauty.
NEtym 2013 was a comprehensive enterprise that saw a footfall of students around 5000 people from all over from the city of Delhi and media coverage mediated through Press Trust of India to several media houses.
