Rangoli '11, the three-week festival organised by UST Global at Technopark, here, got off to a musical start on Thursday with the Maratha Light Infantry Regimental Centre Brass Band performing for the Technopark employees.

The first-of-its-kind performance at the atrium of Bhavani building inside Technopark was enjoyed by dozens of employees of UST and other companies. The Maratha Light Infantry Regimental Centre (MLIRC) Brass Band is one of the oldest bands of the Indian Army.

The performance was organised by the NCC Directorate (Kerala & Lakshadweep), in association with UST Global, a press note issued here said.

Brigadier C. Sandeepkumar, Deputy Director-General, NCC (Kerala & Lakshadweep), introduced the band to the audience.  

As in previous years, UST Global is all set to engage Technopark in some high impact, socially relevant and environment-friendly activities such as the ‘Car health check-up' for Technopark employees initiated by UST's ‘Color Quartz' team, ‘Traffic Management Session' by ‘Color Gold' team and ‘Green Certification Drive' by ‘Color Green' team. 

“There could not have been a better way to kick-start the most awaited celebration of the season ‘Rangoli ‘11' than this world-class performance by the MLIRC Brass Band.

At this year's edition of Rangoli, we look forward to engaging Technopark in a positive way and live up to our mission of transforming lives by involving every individual in various ‘Colors' activities aimed at educating and sensitising people to various aspects of life,” the press note quoted Alexander Varghese, Country Head, UST Global, as saying.
