Counter Strike, a gaming event, saw the maximum participation of 40 students. The dance event on the second day was quite a crowd-puller. Blending Culture was
the theme and students amalgamated more than two forms in a single performance. “It was truly a visual delight. All the performances were filled with energy and enthusiasm. As a member of the audience, I enjoyed them a lot,” said Pradeep, a student.

Since Child Education was the theme for the fest, a special event was organised for the kids of Gurukula Vidyapeetha, an orphanage in Kengeri. “Our aim is to abolish child labour and uplift the condition of the underprivileged kids in the society. Every participant in this fest had contributed Re 1 towards the orphanage,” said Suhrit Majumder, a student co-ordinator.
