Spinning tales isn’t an art mastered by all. Pierian Spring conducted a competition to determine the best makers of tales. A few random words were given to the participants and they were asked to form a story incorporating those words.
There were many interesting stories. Creativity was at it’s highest! After a lot of deliberation, the winners were chosen- they are:
- In First Place- Sharon Philip (16P1208- 1 PCME ‘I’)
- Coming in Second- Rakshit (16P2003- 1 PCMB ‘A’)
- A close Third- Prajwal B. M. (16P2013- 1 HEPP ‘N’)
Congratulations to all the winners!
We hope to see the same enthusiasm and similar spirit for the upcoming events too…

The Second event held by the SSA with both the First and Second years competing against each others, ‘Pick and Speak’ took place on the 16th of July, where we had over two rooms full of students ready to show case their talents. The event was over an hour long and began at 12.00
Pick and speak is the spotlight for those who voluntarily hold the mike and speak up to the topic and look up to the curious crowd. The stage was set and it was time for the speakers to highlight their perspectives on the picked topic and impress the audience. One by one, each having their points with timer set tried their best and indeed a few did steal the audience’s heart and were rewarded with a huge round of applause. From women rights to vegetarianism, all topics were covered and the speakers did express and put forth their views to the judges and students. This event allowed the students to open up and showcase their abilities and their knowledge on various topics. It also helped them to broaden their outlook in a wide range and discover their hidden self and reveal the unknown facts.

The documentary ERULIGARU directed by Dr. BYREGOWDA, which was arranged by Prerana club, the Language Association, gives a clear picture of the lifestyle, food, culture and traditions of the tribal community called “ERULIGARU.” This documentary showed how the tribal people are developing gradually and are becoming civilised. They have a simple lifestyle. From morning to evening they are engaged in one or the other activities. Important ones being agriculture, hunting, basket weaving etc where majority of them are uneducated. But due to the initiatives taken by the government, the literacy rate is gradually increasing. People are provided with basic amenities. Dr. BYREGOWDA is appreciable for spending more than five years amongst them and preparing an amazing documentary about the lifestyle of ” ERULIGAS.”
