Joshi (Pro Vice Chancellor, University of Delhi) and Dr. Nitin Malik (Registrar, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar University).

2 Cadets attended EBSB III from 21st September to 26th September 'EBSB program' - the sole purpose of this wonderful program was to identify and discover the idea of oneness which acts as the basic current and runs like a golden twine through the entire fabric of Indian life and offers a frame-work for understanding how modern cultural forms of both the states have emerged out of very different histories and traditions. The entire journey gave us an account of literature, theatre, film, modern and popular art, music, movies and food. In a series of engaging, erudite and specially designed events we got a chance to explore in detail the social divisions, customs, communications and daily life of both the states and which only compelled us to think in awe how wide-ranging are the cultures that persist in the different regions of India. These kind of programs truly helps us to understand the continuities and fissures within Indian culture. But all throughout, what comes to the forefront is the extra-ordinary richness and diversity of our Indian culture as a whole.
This was organized from 30th August 2020 to 27th September 2020 to spread the awareness about health and fitness. The entire program was motivating and fun and was under the flagship initiative of the government of India’s Fit India Movement.
