CHENNAI: As part of its celebration to mark 10 years of autonomy, MOP Vaishnav College for Women launched its maiden edition of Shringar — an arts and culture festival — on Saturday. “As the Margazhi season has begun, we thought of celebrating the same in our college,” said Lalitha Balakrishnan, principal of MOP.

Film director Sharada Ramanathan inaugurated the festival and congratulated everyone for their effort.

The three-day festival features many popular classical musicians and dancers such as vocalists Vasudha Ravi and Ragini Sri, and dancers like Aarabhi Badri.

“I am extremely happy to get this opportunity to perform in my alma mater,” said bharathanatyam dancer Sukanya Kumar.

“Each ministry in the college was given one responsibility. We had put in a lot of effort, and finally everything seems to have come out well,” said Ananya Desikan, public affairs minister of MOP.

The festival will end today.
