The Courtyard at Elante Mall, the region’s favourite destination for shopping, food and fun, virtually turned into a Global Village on Sunday as Elante hosted Chandigarh’s biggest international cultural extravaganza replete with breathtaking performances, mouth-watering cuisines and vibrant stalls from 25 countries across the globe.
Organised by the Chandigarhchapter of AIESEC (French acronym for the International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences), the multicultural Global Village event transported visitors to a virtual one-day world tour with vibrant stalls showcasing awe-inspiring artifacts and performers from 25 countries regaling the audience with their spellbinding musical and dance performances.
The World Dance Performance and the Ethnic Fashion Show organised by the students to showcase the cultural wealth of their respective countries came as icing on the cake. Prodded on by the performers, many visitors joined them on the stage, doing every bit to match their dance steps.
The AIESEC volunteers also engaged the visitors in a “Language Game” by asking them to say things in different languages. They also asked the audience questions about different countries.
Stating that it was a proud moment for Elante to host such a prestigious event, Mr Anil Malhotra, Executive Director, Nexus Malls, said, “We are happy to give such a distinctive international exposure to our visitors. We had hosted this event last year as well, and the response we have got is absolutely overwhelming.”
