On Saturday, Sellur K. Raju, Minister for Cooperation, was the chief guest. The day started with a general quiz followed by students dancing in pairs to the latest film songs. It had a packed auditorium with students enjoying the foot tapping numbers as group singing and light music were also part of the schedule.
Other events included T-shirt designing, vegetable carving and face painting. There was also a fashion parade and different types of western dances.
After shedding their inhibitions and exorcising their ghosts and demons, the students who participated in the maximum events were pitted against each other in both men and women attire and the winners were declared as Mr and Miss Vyuha, thus marking the culminating of the three-day event. A blood donation camp was organised as part of the event.
The event brought out the best in various participants from colleges all over Tamil Nadu. The talent was there for everyone to see as each participant showcased his or her repertoire in various events on and off stage.
