Wadhwa welcomed everybody especially remembering 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekanand and Golden Jubilee Year of Bharat Vikas Parishad. The chief guest Smt. Smriti Irani vindicated the significance of our ancient culture and role of Sanskrit language in it. She called it a language of the Universe and congratulated the parents and teachers of the students participating in the competition. The entrance passage was richly decorated by Rangoli of Swami Vivekanand made by local artists.

Both the competitions took place simultaneously in nicely decorated separate halls. Total 36 teams from different prants from all over India participated in the event. Mementos were given to all of them as soon as their performance was over.
