Gaining an edge

Or, at least that is the impression that one got at the inauguration of the three-day IT Education Mela-2002 at the Ernakulam Town Hall on Wednesday.

It was the girls who stole the show. They were all there at all important places. Opening the doors, singing the prayer song beautifully and offering welcome bouquets to the dignitaries which included most of the MLAs from the district as well as officials from the district panchayat.

On the second day too, it was the girl students who were running after routine things like distributing lunch coupons and distributing tea and showing the people around at the IT Exhibition that is on at the Town Hall as part of the IT Mela.

If the IT mission can give these students an edge over their male counterparts, IT mission would have achieved more than it bargained for.
