The year 2015 was a great year for CMS VATAVARAN. We successfully organized the 8th editionfrom October 9-13, 2015 at NDMC Convention Centre in New Delhi. More than 4000 people from all walks of life were part of the film festival and forum. Preceding the festival in October was a two-month long (August and September) campaign called “Water Festival’ which saw participation of 24 schools and 3 educational institutions in Delhi NCR.
