Close to 50 students from Carmel College, Nuvem, Goa set out for the Goa Arts and Literary Festival 2016 at International Centre, Donapaula, on 9th December. The much needed transport was provided (and sponsored) by Sister Aradhana by hiring 2 buses for the trip. Students were thrilled at the day-long exposure, meandering among the book exhibition, the art exhibition, the halls, the lawns and the North East pavilion. Of special mention was a session by singer Lou Majaw speaking on Bob Dylan, who won the Nobel Prize for literature this year. Lunch and a basic kit were provided by the organizers. The students were accompanied by Dr. Brian Mendonca of the Department of English, Carmel College.
