As a student of a university we are trained to become good and responsible citizens of our country. We are exposed to certain activities, which not only help make us a refined individual but also inculcate to us to value cultures and traditions. In the university where I am currently studying,we have these annual event called "HUGYAWAN FESTIVAL". Hugyawan means "anything that attracts attention". And this is exactly the participating contingents from the different colleges and campuses of the whole spectrum of the university. It is done every afternoon of December 3. This is the highlight of the annual Founders Day Celebration of our academe. Donning colorful and flamboyant costumes, exciting flawless choreography and dancing to the beat of pulsing music and with the recent them that pays tribute to the Festivals of the World, people are sure to catch attention. Not only attention, but this also promote that we should love and value our own culture and traditions. Hugyawan taught me to value and love my own culture and traditions. How about you, do you value and love your own culture and traditions? More photos of Hugyawan at my blog www.blogcharm.com/hugyawan or www.karolejoseph.blogspot.com

We study world literature and there we discuss India as one of the countries that are very rich in culture and traditions. I hope I could visit India! Probably 10 years from now.
