The Character Day celebration in New Delhi on September 13th was loved and enjoyed by all!
The Safecity team of Hansraj College came up with the most interesting way of celebrating oneself -Poetry and Music. They hosted The Open Mic at Shake Shook in Kamla Nagar, New Delhi. More than 12 youth registered for the event.
The event began with a brief introduction of Safecity and its work and went on to the discussion of Character, the theme for the open mic. Without any delay, we jumped to the poems, ghazals, shayaris and guitar notes.
We began with a poetry on ‘Discovery of Your Own Soul‘ by Arpit Bhalla and then a beautiful poem ‘Insaan tu apni umeedo ka mareez hai‘ by another brilliant poet Aayush Khar. Safecity Volunteer Outreach Officer, Aarushee Shukla, shared her wonderful experience of her journey with Safecity and how it has transformed her into a young confident woman.
We had various other pretty poems by Akansha, Abhishek and Simran, Shayaris by Saurabh Rawat and a soulful ghazal by Aekansh.
Even our campus ambassador from Hansraj recited a poem on ‘Existential Crisis‘ and one of the volunteers, Ayushmita, talked about Dissent.
We concluded the session by clicking pictures, sipping shakes and enjoying the wonderful Thank-you presents made by our volunteer, Manvi.
