to the attended visitors and other stall peers.

Spoken-Tutorial CDs for Linux/Python/Latex and stickers were
distributed to the visitors.

Yogesh explained on how to participate in a open source community to
get help and to contribute.
He emphasized the importance of doing the final year project by own
and doing it as a contribution for
any open source application.

Choosing the best stalls for prizes was so tough as everyone showed
their best enthusiasm.
