Wheels to roll in from Jan. 23

Make sure you are at Sumant Moolgaonkar Stadium next Thursday to hear Grammy-winning instrumentalist Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt play the veena.

He will be performing at the 27th edition of Wheels-2014, an inter-school and college cultural extravaganza organised by Graduate Engineering Trainee (GET) Club — an association of young engineers employed at Tata Motors.

The three-day event will kick off on January 23.

The highlight of this year’s event is a marathon — Run for Greener Tomorrow. As many as 1,000 residents will join the run, which will be held on January 19.

“The objective of the fest is to provide a common platform to school and college students where they can exhibit their creativity. It also provides an opportunity to the graduate trainees to hone their teamwork skills,” said Sanjay Verma, general manager (HR) of Tata Motors, while addressing a news meet at Telco Club on Thursday evening. The automobile company is one of the major sponsors of the fest.

He added that this year’s theme was Indianness.

Wheels-2014 has come up with new contests like pot painting, clay art and spellathon. Rangmanch — a skit and painting competition on any social issue — will be held. The fest will also host a robot workshop, which will test the technical skills of the young minds. Soccer buffs will also have something to look forward to in Futsal, a football tie.

Home girl and playback singer Shilpa Rao will bring the curtains down on January 25 at Sumant Moolgaonkar Stadium.
