Celebrating Bathukamma

Women of Kalleda celebrating the festival

RDF believes in preserving the traditions and culture of the region by ensuring that the students partake in festivities and more importantly understand the essence of the festival. Many festivals are celebrated by performing pooja and/or conducting games for villagers. The ‘Bathukamma’ festival is one such festival, it is celebrated a couple of days before the biggest festival Dassera (which commemorates Lord Ram defeating Ravan). For the Bathukamma festival, RDF VAPV Junior College provided all the required facilities for women and girls of Kalleda village to play safely and recollect the importance of Bathukamma festival and its background. Sound systems were provided for songs to be played about the festival and a protected area was provided for the girls since most wear expensive jewelry, a protected area allows the girls to celebrate the festival in a safe environment. Adding to this, drinking water facilities was also provided for all the villagers. All these amenities ensured that the girls not only had a great time but also continued the traditions of the region.
