Hyderabad: For the 300 trainee civil servants of the 93rd foundation course at Dr MCR HRD Institute of Telangana, the Sunday was special as they could take a break from rigorous training, keep training sessions aside and take part in food-cum-recreation event. They set up food stalls and came up with a variety of dishes including ‘Dum ki Biryani’ and ‘paan’ from Hyderabad, ‘sev tamatar ki sabzi’ from Gujarat, ‘puranpoli’ and ‘Mumbai’s vada pav’ from Maharashtra, ‘churma’ from Haryana, and ‘pudina lassi’ from Punjab.

While one stall even advertised itself as “Sikkim to Chennai via Lucknow,” another offered nail art, hair braiding and mehendi. There was even a poker stall for enthusiasts in that arena. The stall where one could shoot an air rifle at a target proved to be the most popular one among the guests. All the trainee civil servants, officers, faculty, and staff of the institute visited the stalls and relished the food items and sportingly tried their hand at all the games on display.
