POORNACHANDRA KUMARCadets from 17 Directorates of National Cadet Corps (NCC) showcased the ‘cultural diversity’ of the country as they propagated their State’s culture and traditions at the National Integration Awareness Programme (NIAP) organised at BVB’s Sri Venkateswara Vidyalaya here on Wednesday.

Equipped with colourful props and costumes, the cadets recreated scenes of Jammu and Kashmir vendors selling wares in Shikaras (wooden boats), Kerala’s classical dance form Mohiniyattam, traditional festivals of Andhra Pradesh, ethno-cultural variations in the North-Eastern belt and much more.

“This programme is part of National Integration Camp (NIC) organised by the NCC every year. Through this camp we aim to bridge the cultural divide and infuse a sense of unity among the cadets surpassing religious, cultural, regional and linguistic barriers,” said Colonel K.J.M. Roy, Group Commander of NCC Tirupati.

Besides cultural programmes, the camp also comprised a wide gamut of activities like field visits, trekking, debates and games. “As a confidence building measure, we have also arranged guest lectures on personality development, career counselling and stress management along with basic introductory sessions of yoga and self defence,” said Colonel Anand Mehrotra, Commanding Officer of 5 Andhra Girls Battalion (Tirupati).

The camp began at Old Vedic College Campus on January 7 and will continue till January 18.

Cadets have already visited all the prominent places such as Lord Balaji Temple, Regional Science Centre, S.V. Zoological Park and Chandragiri Fort.
