As history would have it, there is an undeniable imprint of China in Calcutta, be it the food or the famous China Town area that visitors flock to or the Chinese festivals that are celebrated with great enthusiasm in this city. To mark the advent of the Chinese new year, Dalhousie Institute Presents Chinese New Year Celebrations in association with The Telegraph had the halls of DI decked up in hues of red, keeping with Chinese traditions, symbolising good fortune and joy.
The guests at the club witnessed an amazing performance by a group called India Hong De. The performances included Hok-San drumming, Double Lions Dance, Tai Chi and other forms of Chinese art. Besides these attractions, the club had three extra kitchens that served Chinese delicacies like sui mai, sausages, fried rice, red meat bao, pork and chicken shyafaley.
“A small number with a big impact, sums up the Chinese community in our multi-cultural club. The enthusiastic crowd ensured that almost nothing was left of the baos, sui mai, fried chicken, fried rice and chinese sausages laid out by members of the community. The high-energy dance display of lions and dragons is a must-have at this annual function. As an inclusive club, we celebrate all cultures and religions with equal fervour and effort,” said Jayajit Biswas, president, DI.
