This year SRM AP celebrates Republic Day in the most unconventional way that has enabled the females of the district to come together and rejoice the occasion. Words went out a week ago to the women hailing from the adjoining villages-Nidamarru, Kurugallu, Neerukonda, Pedhaparimi that SRM AP will be hosting Republic Day themed Rangoli competition on 25th January, 2020 which will be open to all the women living in the district, students, faculty, and staff.
On 25th January, registration for the competition began early in the morning and was closed by 8 a.m. Close to 60 contestants participated, and each were given 5*5 feet of space in the atrium area to make rangoli. Cheered by ample spectators including students and inhabitants of the nearby villages, the participants transformed the floor of the atrium into picturesque blocks of art.
Close to dusk, the winners were declared and Ms. Manimanjari from Ravella village bagged the 1st prize by making a rangoli that pledges to save the environment and the society this republic day. Mrs. Bharati and Ms. Malleswari from Mangalagiri received the prize money for being the runner up and 1st runner up respectively.
