Abu Dhabi, Feb 9(DW): Abu Dhabi Karnataka Sangha, one of the leading associations of Kannadigas in the capital city of UAE held its annual ’Winter Picnic’ at Al Watba Park, Al Ain Road here on Friday February 7.

Cool weather added energy and set the right mood for the picnic. Buses carried Kannadigas to Al Watba Park where the picnic began with delicious breakfast bringing back memories of hometown.

Abu Dhabi Karnataka Sangha President and recipient of Karnataka Rajyotsava Award Sarvotham Shetty welcomed the picnic crowd and announced various activities of the day. The crowd was divided into eight groups named after colours.

Varieties of games like passing the ball, rope vest, dog and bone, dodge ball, advertisement game, Kannada song and dance, mimicry, weighing watermelon, guessing chocolates, measuring the rope, bingo and queen’s demand kept the gathering engaged throughout the day. Each and every one took active participation in the games.

A Kannada quiz prepared by Mangala Shetty was an excellent effort to remind Kannadigas of their rich heritage, literature, history and unforgettable achievements of people of yesteryear. Games were also conducted for children.

The advertisement game was quite thrilling and challenging with lots of imagination. This event brought out the hidden talents of the crowd. Peppy music made the event complete. The popular game ’queen’s  demand’ was enjoyed by everybody. Games were conducted by Sarvotham Shetty along with the assistance of the managing committee members. A delicious lunch prepared on the spot was served to all.
