Gurugram, Nov. 23-26, 2021 : To mark Constitution Day 2021, Apeejay Stya University recently held a painting competition for its students. A total of 40 students across various departments—from Design to Law and Education—participated in the event that was held virtually. Organised by the National Service Scheme (NSS), the theme for the competition was ‘India of My Dreams’.

The participants were allowed to either paint manually or use the digital medium. The paintings were reflections of their vision for the country—from a casteless society to women’s safety, and food and education for all. Ankita Dagar, a first-year student of Bachelor of Education (B.Ed), was announced the winner. “There are so many people in our country who are battling malnutrition and poverty. That is what I highlighted in my painting. I also stressed the safety of women. Even if a woman raises her voice against any abuse, people tend to point fingers at her. The country of my dreams is also the one that is No. 1 in technology,” she said.
