A scene near counters and stalls, during Mardi Gras (1983)

Cultural Events , Student Activities

In the photograph students (possibly attendees or participants), who are accompanied by a nun, can be seen taking a pause near the stalls and counters that were possibly outside the Open Air Theatre in the campus, during Mardi Gras ‘83. The photograph shows the food counters behind the students, such as the ‘Kwality Ice-Creams’ stall. There is also a ‘zorb ball’, or a geodesic dome in the background.
Similar scenes with stalls and counters can be seen today at ‘Saarang,’ the cultural festival at IIT Madras, where students take a break from the events to catch a bite or relax with their friends.
