GUWAHATI, Dec 15 � The Nehru Park at Pan Bazar here on Friday came alive with a carnival with a difference with the youths enjoying a variety of engaging moments. It was a mix of education, entertainment and amusement for those who took part in the �US Experience�.
Two popular bands performed at a venue specially set up for the occasion. Empirical Tribe and Rangdap, two award winning groups, performed a number of songs in the place, which also saw information being passed out to students and youths about educational opportunities in the US.
A Visa corner was specially set up on the premises for the benefit of students, tourists and business visitors, sources said.
The American Library, Kolkata had a presence in the venue and offered information about its services available.
Rachel Sunden, Deputy Director of American Center, Kolkata, told The Assam Tribune that the event highlighted Guwahati�s emergence as an area of interest on several counts. The academic, cultural and business value of the place are recognised by a major event like this.
Throughout the two-day event, the American Centre has sought to bring a little taste of America to Guwahati. She hoped that more collaborations between the American Center and partners here will take place in the days ahead.
In January, a dance company from the US will be performing in Guwahati, Sunden added.
