ILLU 2007.

The festival of light as they call it ...
Today I was witnessing the very sight of it .
IIT Kharagpur has a tradition called ILU meaning illumination in short ,
wherein each hostel prepares a scenary out of diyas (oil-lamps)

Size of the scenary is not limited ,
judges come and decide the winner based on the quality.

To give an idea ,
one hostel has on an average 60,000 lamps lit up to create the scenary
and to decorate the whole building.
Oh ! thats too much no , the next interesting fact is we have 18 such halls .
Make a wild guess on

.....the number of lamps lit up !
.....oil in each lamp X no. of lamps!

..... No. of chicks to watch :D

  1. Its really shameful that these very educated people from IITs are not understanding the values of money, power etc... i think billions of rupees will be wasted on the stupid festival like Diwali n Pollution Free wid stupidness !!!!!

    Also because of Dewali celebration around 15 lahks persons are suffering from Asthama and every year there is addition of 15 % asthama patients to the existing number because of Air pollution.

    Isn't it shameful????
    Shame on india n indian ...
