The Personality, Skill Development Centre and the department of journalism and mass communication of DAV College on Saturday organised a programme to motivate students towards public speaking. As many as 50 students of different departments of the college participated in the event. Events like poetry, stand-up-comedy, and story-telling were also held in order to make students familiar with speaking.

Principal Dr SK Arora appreciated the initiative organised by the department. He said, “Education is not complete only by acquiring bookish knowledge, it is necessary to have practical knowledge to be successful in life. Today, students are able to display their art by participating in different events. All this will help students grow and gain confidence which would further prove beneficial for them in future.”

Dean of Personality and Skill Development Centre and Head of the department Prof Meenakshi Siddhu said, “Through poetry, story-telling, students will be able to refine their writing and pronunciation ability. While their acting capacity will be increased by stand-up comedy and street play. Students need to participate in all such events as it provide them the opportunity to explore their talent and excel in their chosen field or interest.”

The issue of ‘women empowerment’ was raised besides issues like corruption, equality were also discussed. The problem of gender discrimination in the society was highlighted in a better way. The demonstration of atrocities on women through a street play was also held.
