This helped students to learn more about their country and to develop a sense of pride in their heritage and unfolded as a voyage of discovery, inviting young minds to delve into the essence of Bharat – the nation that breathes within their hearts.
Organized to test our basic knowledge of India, the competition had us reach for a special book published by Bharat Vikas Parishad, which became our guiding star on this knowledge-enhancing odyssey. Designed to gauge fundamental knowledge about India, the competition guided participants toward a designated resource – a special publication by Bharat Vikas Parishad – that illuminated their path on this enlightening expedition.

With a mere half-hour on the clock, they put their acquired knowledge to the ultimate test. Each question was akin to a puzzle piece, contributing to a comprehensive image of India’s multifaceted culture, history, and geography.
