WGSHA digresses from continental norm, hosts Rajasthani food fest

The students of WelcomeGroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration (WGSHA)  hosted their second food fest of the semester, “ Padharo Mari Dhani”  at Chhaya, Fortune Valley Inn on the 3rd and 4th of November.  


For the first time, a Rajasthani theme was in play, a far stretch from the usual continental themes. The food festival was characterised by an array of authentic Rajasthani dishes and a vibrant, colourful decor. To add to the effect, all the participating students donned traditional Rajasthani attire. || Photograph courtesy: Ishveena Paliwal

“The good thing about the food here is that it contains everything. You can taste everything from spicy, to savoury, to sweet and there is nothing I do not like about it,” said Aryan Mandari, an attendee. || Photograph courtesy: Tamanna Wadehra


The event was inspired by the concept of a chowkidhani, traditional Rajasthani villages, completed with street games, live music and a mehendi (henna) station. The head of the event, Anish Hissaria said, “Our aim is to not only serve good food, but to serve an entire experience.” || Photograph courtesy: Tamanna Wadehra
