Hues of patriotism



Patriotic strokes — Pic. by K. Pichumani

IT IS the spirit of adventure that inspires youngsters to try out different things and take on challenges.

Treading unexplored grounds, 10 students of the Velammal Matriculation Higher Secondary School, attempted to create a world record with a non-stop sketching session on August 14. The theme they chose was in keeping with the spirit of Freedom — `India's Glory and Greatness'. The marathon session, which started at 8 a.m. on August 12 on the school campus, concluded at 6 p.m. on August 14.

The 58-hour session coincided with the 58th year of the country's Independence. Now, that's patriotic fervour, isn't it?
