This was followed by a number of other programs, organised by the students, which included various events like Room Decoration, Fashion show, Musical instrument playing, Singing and Dancing, Drama and what not.
A series of competitions were also conducted to enthral the audience, and encourage the students to take part in healthy competitive activities to showcase their inner hidden talents.
