AmreetKaur, a student from Pinnacle Institute of Fashion Technology, says, “Amidst this chaos, I try to stay calm by picking up the brush and colours. Painting has a therapeutic effect on me.” She stood first in the competition held recently by her institute.

Pinnacle Institute recently held an online doodling competition for their students on the occasion of Buddha Purnima.The theme of the competition was Buddhism. As many as 50 students participated in the competition.

Pooja,a final-year student of fashion designing, said the lockdown should not bring life to a standstill. “Our institute is regularly organising competitions. Being a fashion designing student, my mind is always trying to innovate.Iloveplaying with colours and sheets,” says Pooja.

Khushi, a class X student from Government High School,Jawaddi, made a beautiful ‘thank you’ card for the frontline warriors, who are fighting COVID-19. “Our school gives us different assignments as a breather from the routine studies,” said Khushi.
