The day 2 of the fest included activities like creative writing, funk from junk, painting, dance trance etc. The participants interested in photography competition were asked to capture emotions within the campus and hence, we witnessed a number of participants running around the campus to click emotions. The fest was concluded with colourful performances and the prize distribution ceremony where, Andrew Cecil and Mauvin Sequiera won gold medals for Picture perfect (a photography event), Deepthi Kamath, Malini and Indu P.S won gold medals for funk from junk (a model making competition) and a team of five students namely Andrew, Indu, Artha, Radhika and Deepthi won gold medals for make a break (a mad ad event).
