A three-day Inter-collegiate Youth Festival began on a grand note on Gulbarga University campus here on Wednesday.

Hundreds of students from different colleges affiliated to the university took out a procession on the campus playing drums and other traditional instruments and reached Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Auditorium where the event was formally inaugurated by Narasimhalu Vadavati, renowned clarinet player.

In his inaugural address, Pt. Vadavati urged students to dream big and work hard to realise it. He narrated how he could make a difference in the field of music despite having thousands of hurdles, including acute poverty. “You should not become complacent with minor achievements. Dream big and work hard to realise your goals. I was born and brought up in a poverty-ridden family. I did not have proper footwear. But, I did not give up my struggle,” he said.

He urged the young learning community to read the biographies of great personalities and get inspired by them to make a difference and contribute to society in a positive way.

Pt. Vadavati then stole the show with his mesmerising clarinet performance.

University’s (Acting) Vice-Chancellor Parimala Ambekar, Syndicate member Vijaya Bhaskar, Academic Council member C.S. Basavaraj, Registrar (Evaluation) Sanjiv Kumar, Students Welfare Committee president K. Siddappa, Kannada Department head H.T. Pote, and others were present.
