through the uniqueness of the geographical location, the design of monuments, cuisine, food
culture, costumes, traditions etc. represented Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh,
Punjab, New Delhi, Kolkata, Gujarat, Goa and Andhra Pradesh. The artistic looks and
creativeness of the students was marvelous and worth the sight.
‘World Heart Day’ is a campaign established to spread awareness about the health of heart
