This event was organized to provide a platform for the incoming batch to express themselves uniquely and engagingly. Through this competition, we aimed to foster confidence, public speaking skills, and innovative thinking among our freshers.

The competition consisted of three rounds, each designed to challenge participants in different aspects of communication.


The event witnessed enthusiastic participation from all first-year classes, showcasing a diverse range of talents and perspectives.
