It was a houseful Pearl Utsav this year at Talkatora stadium where students from more than 20 colleges participated in various competitions and the stadium was jam-packed with more than 1500 audiences in the evening to listen to their favorite rock band ‘Euphoria’. The day became more special when the big announcement was made – the new campus of Pearl Academy at Mumbai!
Mr. Sharad Mehra, CEO, Pearl Academy, handed over the ‘Key to the Future’ (a symbolic key) to the new campus’s director Ms. Bulbul Choudhary at the stadium and wished her all the best.
Another exciting initiative that Pearl Academy exercised was Smart Bands (Radio frequency identification (RFID) wristbands). The fest was promoted on all the social media sites and students were seen wearing this Smart Band which had a chip, which when swiped on Facebook installations at the venue, sent automatic updates on their timeline about the fest.
The one day event turned out to be a day full of bustling activities, which saw more than 200 students from Delhi universities as well as other universities engage in activities – Khichak (photography competition), Nukkad Natak (drama contest), Spotlight (dance competition), A Walk to Remember (fashion show), Melody Arrest (singing competition), and Keep Calm and Design (T-shirt design contest). Winning students received cash prizes worth INR 60,000 and gift prizes worth INR 40,000.
