Students participate in painting and poetry competitions
People from all age groups gathered at the Gandhi Thidal to participate in the ‘Azhagai Vazhvom' function to harness their creative talent and try a hand at winning prizes.
Children from various schools in Puducherry participated in the event, where they could either be a part of the drawing competition or the poetry competition. There was also a lucky dip.
The event was organised to create awareness of the environment and the need to preserve nature.
The fact that people need to live life in the present and focus on positive thoughts was also stressed, a release said.
The program was inaugurated by the actor Nasser and Chief Minister N. Rangasamy distributed the prizes. The event was organised by Vidhya Niketan High School.
