The participating students came up with original creations in various categories like Short film making (Dilli Dekho), Word Games, Best Dress Design (Make-over for Indian politician), Fabric painting on T-Shirt (Changing India as theme) & Light Camera Reaction (Photo feature). The judges were surprised by the level of creativity and innovation exhibited by the students.
