On Sunday, 13th November 2016, a corner of Bhavan’s campus came alive with the colours of nature and the sounds of music. The corner in question was the Abhyudaya office or more specifically its outer walls. The colours of nature were the vivid hues of the red and orange shades of the sun, and the greens, blues, yellows and browns of the birds and butterflies; trees and grass!
This was a special day-long event, designed and facilitated by the Abhyudaya team, to help the mentors and their mentees bond over a stint of creative activity. Each pair was allotted a square piece of wall, chalk and colours to fill up the space with their imagination.
Close by, the sound system belted out popular numbers to pep up the atmosphere. Work done, the budding artists feasted on Samosa pav and made way for the next batch.
