Packed with arms and ammunitions of adroitness, students from 20 universities and 40 colleges declared to wage a five-day battle at Kuruksastra at SASTRA University on Wednesday.

The first missile of the war in art, music, and dance was fired by the light music troupe of SASTRA. The magnetism not only set the stage ablaze, but also ignited the audience and left every one present tapping feet, clapping, and dancing to the tune.

Visibly happy over the overwhelming response to the cultural extravaganza, S.Vaidhya Subramanian, Dean, SASTRA, said,

“If Kurukshetra was the greatest battle in Hindu mythology, Kuruksastra would be the greatest battle of students from institutions in southern India to exhibit their talent and prove their mastery.”

Literary events include three languages - Tamil, English and Hindi, whereas there is no limit for art, music and dance.

"In the short span of four years, Kuruksastra has evoked phenomenal response, and this year it has grown even bigger," Mr. Vaidhya Subramanian said. R.Sethuraman, Vice Chancellor, C.Suresh Kumar, District Revenue Officer, and Ajay Yadav, assistant collector (trainee), participated. K.Baskaran, Collector, inaugurated the festival.
