The students of various departments of the college had set up as many as 38 stalls of flowers, bed sheets, towels, furniture, handmade accessories, paintings and photography, poetry books, jewellery, games and artwork, weather articles, pottery, shoes and food items, which were decorated with colourful banners and balloons.
The Art Department displayed clutches, cushions, handbags, painted pottery, wall pictures and T-shirts designed by students. Students of the Home Management Department displayed bed covers made by them. The HDFS Department presented hand-painted scarves, flower arrangement and handicrafts.
Principal Samia Kalsoom said that events like funfairs provide a refreshing break from the tedious studies and monotonous day-to-day routines.
