This was the most remarkable feature of the festival. This event is a collective effort of the faculty, students and the admin staff.  The carnival is open for parents, outsiders and boys under 10 years of age. The doors of the carnival opened at 1:00pm and with in an hour it was flooded.  Visitors came in droves dressed in the hues of spring lending colour and energy to the event. The main attractions of the carnival were mouth watering food delicacies, games and rides.   The food stalls were laden with great rural and urban recipes, variations of grilled kababs, jelebi, rasgullas, gulabjamun and vegetarian food. The event would have been incomplete without the traditional biryani, haleem and halwa puri.  The thoughtfully prepared nutrient dense food packed with spicy flavours reflected the country’s cultural diversity. The thrilling rides included chin chin rickshaw, camel ride, train and buggy. The carnival had a great surprise to offer, the DESI CIRCUS. The circus performers included dwarf clowns, acrobats and jugglers to name a few.  Amazing and entertaining feats were performed by stunt artists. Within no time guests filled the pulse pounding arena. The circus was so astounding; one had to see it to believe it.
By 4:00 pm the carnival was jam packed where visitors basked in the delights of the fair. As the sun descended it was time to wind up, guests were seen heading home reluctantly. This year the number of visitors was two fold compared to the previous years.
The students and the management have decided to donate the proceeds of the carnival to the victims of the Thar drought.
