The Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art celebrated ‘lungi’ day on the 19th of December. If you’re thinking that this was just some boring day with girls wearing wrap-arounds, you’re wrong. We at JJ didn’t just wear plain lungis, some wore them nariyalpaaniwalla style while some came to college in a butcher’s getup. A few even tried to start a new trend by wearing a belt on their lungi. One guy donned a girl’s wrap-a-round skirt and walked as if he was wearing a kimono. To top it all, a guy who had forgotten to bring his lungi draped himself in newspapers!
The day ended with Nashik Dhol, a quintessential feature of J J during which you get tosee the whackiest and most outrageous dance acts, including one in which you hang on a window grill and monkey around!!!
