The 'North -East India' embracing the 8 states (Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Assam, Nagaland, Tripura, Meghalaya and Sikkim) well known for its diverse culture, blessed with abundant flora and fauna are referred to by many as NATURE'S ABODE and TRAVELLER'S PRIDE.
The aim of the North-east society is to uncover the diversity of our unique identity and culture and to assimilate every northeast students studying in Delhi University together as brothers and sisters under one umbrella.
Keeping this initiative in mind, the northeast society of BHARATI COLLEGE was established in December, 2018. It comprises of 80 plus students and a convener. The society aims to manifest the rich tradition of north - east India in order to grow closer to the mainland India. True to its culture and tradition, every year the society organizes various events where the students would get opportunity to showcase their talents and also the radiant cultures since its inception.
In 2018, the executive members were elected by the convenor. The society collaborated with the history department for the fest on 11th March 2019. Moreover, the 1st ever North- east ANNUAL FEST was held on 8th April, 2019 in which Professor Yaruingam Awungshi, Dept. of African Studies, Delhi University graced the occasion in the presence of Principal Mukti Sanyal and other well-wishers.
The new session kicked off in August 2019 followed by an orientation programme where new candidates were appointed as executive members. The society is also glad to inform that one of the members was elected as the ' finance minister ' of NESSDU (North East Students Society, Delhi University). It is the umbrella founding body which aims to spread the unique culture, to look into the grievances, to foster the students in their academics as well as in co- curricular activities of every North-east student studying in Delhi University.

In one of these competitions, the society secured 1st position in BAMBOO DANCE TROUPE at DDU NORTH-EAST FEST on 27th February, 2020. It was indeed a proud moment!
Due to various reasons, the main fest of the society was not able to hold on time but fortunately it was made possible on 4th of March, 2020 showcasing the exotic cuisines and vibrant tribal dances of North-east India. It was an all day long programme in which Senganglu Thaimei , Asst. Professor of Miranda House, English Dept. graced the occasion. She enlightened each one of us to breakdown the stereotypes of north east India and encouraged the students to be ‘beyond exotic’.
Many North-east students across Delhi University colleges came and participated in various activities like cultural dance, fashion show with their respective traditional dress and so on followed by the lively 'moonlight dance'. Thus, binding together the uniqueness of each culture together as one.

The society aims to manifest the rich tradition of NORTH -EAST INDIA in order to grow closer to the mainland INDIA.
We want the society to gain much more recognition from the college authorities so that there is enough opportunity to share the ethnicity of our culture and also to bring to light the situation of North East India as many mainland Indians are still not cognizant yet even though North-East is also very much part of India.
Moreover, we want to fight and stand against the racism where each north eastern individual encounters in their day to day college life.
LAST NOTE FOR FIRST YEARS WHO MAY LIKE TO BE PART OF SOCIETY
The Nort-heast society is mandatory for all North-east students to join as it is for their welfare. The society deals with the discriminations faced by the students within the college. Plus giving you (FRESHERS) more opportunities to outshine and exhibit your talents.
Note: The members of North-east society, Bharati College also participated in NESSDU SPORTS MEET on 7th and 12th March 2020.
The Society would like to thank the Principal, Bharati College and college authorities for giving us this opportunity to facilitate this lively society.
