”Prachandara Parishe”, as the name suggests, was indeed gearing up to be an exhibition of talents. A unique opportunity to share the art and craft skills of members and children was
arranged through an exhibition/competition, aptly Called “Kalaa Mogasaale “. The members themselves voted for the best exhibit in various categories and the exhibit with highest votes was selected the winner. Various competitions based on Glorious Kannada language were children of various age groups and adults. For the first time, House based skit competitions with a mix of children and adults was organised. The skit competition was enjoyed and well appreciated by participants and members alike.
