The function started with the lighting of lamp by the chief guest and thereafter participants presented their different views.

“Learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge, and knowledge makes us great”, he added.
He hoped that Tiny Aspirants will play an important role in enhancing and sustaining the quality of education as their endeavour can bring fresh innovation in the system and can go a long way in providing the young generation a platform, expressing their talents, wisdom and vision.
