Though the high spirited annual Spring Fest of St. Joseph College, Jakhama came to an end on March 14, the two-day festival left the students of this college of Nagaland with some unforgettable memories.

Born in Nalbari, his first brush with music came from listening to songs played on the radio. Recounting his initial days, he said, “My father brought me a ‘Philips walkman’ and I was stuck to it all through the day and night, which resulted in the constant drain of batteries. I would continuously run to and fro to shops to get the new batteries.” He collected his first guitar from his cousin’s garage and began to strumming it.  Facebook image “We studied about Shelly, Keats, Byron, and Wordsworth in our schools and fell in love with their poems. Those inspired me a lot,” said Dutta, when asked about the…
