Go Green. That's the theme the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Chennai, has chosen this year for its three-day inter-college fest ‘Spectrum ‘11' that began on Wednesday.

Old CDs, plastic bottles, polythene bags, used papers and other ‘decorative' items have been put together to give a green backdrop for events taking place at the inner courtyard of the campus in Taramani, while the other corridors are more or less decorated with used materials in keeping with the theme. A cycle rally from the Institute to Elliots beach opened the events of Spectrum; this again sent across a green message to use eco-friendly modes of transport. The campus was buzzing with inter and intra-college events to showcase the creativity of students.

Chief guest and Director of Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development P. Michael Vetha Siromony said students should be assessed not only on their marks but also on their innate talents.
