Colour, pageantry and traditional entertainment showcased the strength of diversity on the third annual International Day at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology. Hosted by the Student Affairs Office (SAO) and organised entirely by the students on Tuesday, the International Day was an occasion for students, faculty and staff to become part of an afternoon that brought forth the rich cultural diversity of the sustainable campus. The Wind Tower area was abuzz with a burst of entertainment as eight diverse dance groups representing regions including the US, Africa, the Indian sub-continent and the UAE swayed to the tunes of traditional and modern music. From the UAE’s Ayyalah to the African drums and the Syrian Arada, Palestinian and Jordanian Dabke as well as music and dance from South Asia, every form of traditional rhythm was presented with enthusiastic particiation from students. Sumptuous cuisine from various countries was on offer for food-lovers as stalls became a beehive of activity. Faculty and students tested their abilities in traditional Emirati rope-making and basket-weaving techniques at the UAE stall while food was served with the customary touch of hospitality. Answers to randomly selected questions brought prizes to visitors at the Ireland stall while country stalls representing the Americas, continental Europe, Africa and Asia offered interesting information on ancient sites and places of interest to tourism. Fazil Abdul Rahiman, president of the Student Government Association (SGA), said: “Traditional attire, stalls decked in rich colours and the cuisine reflected the diverse ambience of the campus on the third annual International Day. “Though it was an afternoon that brought out the diversity, it was also an occasion for coming together to celebrate each other’s traditions. Students expressed their gratitude to the faculty and management of Masdar Institute for the support and encouragement.” From: gulftoday
