The faculty-mentored 5 students who took part in the competition.
1.Yashoda ( sem-4)
Every student had different ideas to look at the topic. They all had different explanations and perception. It was such a diverse topic to draw. Among them, Mr. Abhishek (sem-2) won the 4th position making the whole college proud. When we asked him what was the first thought that came to his mind after knowing the topic, he says “Nowadays humans are creating or buying a lot of types of machinery for warfare, that is declining the human mortality rate to a near end, but at least insects can withstand that warfare kind of things and they survive, they survive in a happy place. So this was the concept my drawing was focused on”. The maturity of the students at such a tender age is so wonderful to imagine. He also received prize money of Rs 1500. The other students also received a participation certificate. The students were very happy to be a part of the celebration.
We are thankful to all the students who participated and represented us there.
We hope to see many more achievements by students in the coming time.
