TALENT SEARCH IN ENGG STUDENTS
“Everyone has talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.”-Erica Jong
A Talent Hunt Competition was organized by the Departments of Civil, Mechanical and Electronics & Communication Engineering for their students to motivate them to come forward and showcase their hidden talents.
Students exhibited their talent through dances, poetry, mono-acting and singing competitions. It was a joyful and overwhelming moment to witness them performing various items.
Following were the winners of the competition:
Feter Tacheng & Lishi Paki
Department of Civil Engineering’s JOHN SMEATON CLUB organized “DUMB CHARADES”
It is a guessing game where one team decides the word or phrase which is given to other team. Only actions has to be done and
the player has to convey the answer only through actions.
It is rightly said actions speak louder
than words. Participants enthusiastically exhibited their gesturing abilities with their tongue-tied.
The following teams were declared as winners on the basis of displaying best gestures, teamwork, innovative thinking etc. and were awarded cerificates :
1. YAWAR YAQOOB BANDAY (CE-8)
2. HANSPAL SINGH (CE-8)
3. MOHD. OMAR (CE-8)
