             After two years Maharaja Krishnakumarsinhji Bhavnagar University organised a Youth Festival on 18/19/20/21 September 2022, hosted by Takshila Institute. As we were not able to do it in the previous two years due to Covid Pandemic. It was started by Kalayatra on 18th September. The route was from Victoria Park Water Tank to the University Amphi Theatre. 

The Name of Youth Festival was given this time


      As we are celebrating 75 years of the independence of India as AZADI KA AMRIT MAHOTSAV, in a similar way, the name of Youth Festival, AMRUT RANG was also very given for that purpose to celebrate 75 years of independence.

          Almost 44 colleges of BHAVNAGAR University had participated in this Youth Festival. As a part of KALAPRADRSHAN, Kalayatra is being organised so citizens come to know about it. Now it has been widened due to the technical tools. Live telecast of Kalayatra and other events was going on the Youtube channel of MKBU and also on the channel of host institution Taxshila. Around 1 lakh people watched Kalayatra both online or offline way. Themes were mostly based on current scenarios, issues and its Solutions.  and  Here is a glimpse of Kala Yatra.

           Youth festivals provide us a platform to reach our destination in whichever activity we like. This time Gujarati Film director, Abhishek Jain has chosen four singers for their singing journey. All the winners will represent Bhavnagar University in the West Zone Youth Festival. So there also they will get a chance to look forward to their field.

      After the opening ceremony, all events started side by side. In those days main events were organised. Including , Music, Folk Dance, Fine arts, Theatre events and Literature. In this Youth festival there were five places where these events were organised and accordingly they have given one particular name.

1. Atal Auditorium:- Vinodbhai Amlani Natyamanch

2. Old Court Hall:- Shree Rajesh Vaishnav Surmanch

3. External Department:- Shree T. K. Gohil Kalamanch

4. Amphi Theatre:- Shree Mahendrabhai Meghani Mukhyamanch

5. English Department:- Shree Harindra Dave Sahitya Manch

               It was the second Youth Festival for me but When I was in First year of BA, I didn't attend these events so I must say that it was my first for me. I have attended most of the events and tried to get something or learn something out of this. When we are students of language and literature, all these fields which are included in the Youth festival are one way or the other and have a kind of connection with literature as well. Almost all are part of language and literature. There were lots of new things as well as repetition of old things. Both things go parallel

Around 32 events were organised this year. Click here for the event information and participation of various institutions in it.

પૃથ્વીના માનવી તમે રે તારો તો…

માને તો મનાવી લેજો જી…

રામ તમે સીતાજીને તોલે ન આવો

મારી મેના રે બોલેને બગલો..

Sugam Geet:-

ઓગાળી દઈએ આકાશને…

લીલીછમ લાગણીનો છોડ…

તારી તે પ્રીતમાં પાગલ થઈ ગઈ…

Western Solo Song:-

Western Group Song:-

During the Skit performances, there were certain problems aroused among students from the audience. So to handle the situation the managing trusti of Host institution Takshashila played a song "Har Har Shambhu" and told to on mobile flash light to create the moment memorable.

        My experience of this Youth Festival is very much important as well as informative. After entering the Department of English, MKBU, I have acquired a vision to look beyond things. So this time I have started to explore ideas, it can be connected to study, literature or real life events and its outcome. I and students of the department of English have attended most of the events. So we were going here or there to find out if there is something new or unique, if not then why that old thing has been repeated. I want to connect several literary works 

                 During this Youth Festival, it was decided to do live streaming of all the events which were organised in Amphi Theatre and Atal Auditorium. All the Theatrical events were performed in Atal Auditorium. But during the events, live telecast of theatrical events except Mime, were prevented as it was said that scripts of all the events were not given to the authority before, so it may create disputes, as we all see before starting any movie, there is a presentation of certificate which is given by censor board. Like these events, debate competition streaming was not telecasted due to this reason. 

        I participated in Cartoon Making but couldn't secure anything but have got experience and learnt a lot. With this learning will try to give my best next year. On the closing ceremony we got space to present a song, so I sang a Gujarati Lagna Geet "મોર તારી સોનાની ચાંચ". The stage matters a lot for me. So feeling very happy for that performance.

Closing ceremony -

                       The Closing Ceremony of the Youth Festival brings too much joy among students as well as institutions. It declares the outcome of participants’ hard work. Before the result announcement, the formal ceremony was there.

           This time management committee had provided Rikshaw in the University area to help students and others to reach the event place. It  became helpful to all.
