Curtains came down on the two-day Vignanotsav held on the premises of Vignan Global Zen School at Palakaluru.

The two-day festival witnessed keen competition among students of different schools in Guntur, Krishna, Khammam and Prakasam districts in academic, cultural and technical events.

Srivastava of Bhashyam School bagged the first prize and was adjudged Mr. Vignanostav, while I. Navya, of Vignan Public School, LIC Colony stood first in the girls category.

The winners in the regional competitions will lock horns at the grand finale to be held at Nizampet in Hyderabad on January 28.

At the valedictory function, founder of Bhagavadgita Foundation and playback singer L.V Gangadhar regaled the audience with his witty one-liners and satirical comments on the rapid deterioration of Telugu language and blamed the films.

He said that India in essence was the embodiment of Gita and asked the students to feel proud of their country, cradle of many a religion and language.

Municipal Commissioner K. Sudhakar expressed his concern over the alarming rise of depression related problems among students and blamed the present education system with its overrated stress on marks.

Chairman of Vignan Group of Educational Institutions, Lavu Rathiah said that he was proud of the students of the Vignan Schools who have shouldered the responsibility of organising such a massive event and learning a whole lot of skills, which could not be taught in a class room.

Executive Director Paturi Koteswara Rao, Zonal Manager G. Koornanath and Principal Srinivas were present.
