Fun times had arrived at the Apollo College of Physiotherapy at Jubilee Hills. From the 13th of July, the annual week had started with various competitions being held through out the coming week in the campus. These competitions were held twice a day between 8:30 A.M to 10:00 A.M in the morning and from 4:00 P.M to 5:30 P.M in the evening. The management did not want the academics to be affected and hence decided on these timings. Students, for a change, were seen arriving early to the college either as participants or to cheer for their batch mates and friends. They’d wait until the day to get over for the next round of competitions.

The various competitions that were conducted in the week were Flower Arrangement, Ad Zap, Mehendi Applying, Tattoo Art, Rangoli, Painting etc. They were organized by the senior most batch and monitored by the faculty. Volunteers were appointed from every batch and the judges were invited from outside the college to avoid favouritism. The judgment was based on various factors and the results will be declared and prizes distributed on the  9th and 10th of August, when Apollo College of Physiotherapy will be celebrating 10 years, during an event which will be a whole world unto itself!

There was excitement and surprise on the campus during the week long events, as the hidden talents blossomed out of many a  student. The students were enthusiastic and creative and at the same time,caring and responsible, because through these competitions, the students are expressing their feelings for world peace and harmony.

The Flower Arrangement saw participants expressing themselves through flowers. One of the bouquets was made of only orange flowers, indicating the colour of humanity. The participant requested people to joins hands and be one for the sake of humanity. Another arrangement was dedicated to the soldiers who serve our country unconditionally; the flowers were delicately arranged in the shape of an Indian map in colours of its flag. Another interesting bouquet was made in the shape of a boat, dedicated to the president of Australia, requesting him to show humanity towards the Indian students and bringing about peace.

The rangolis spoke out beautifully through colours. The rangolis conveyed strong messages. A rangoli that depicted a peacock, gave out the message of preserving, and admiring nature. Another rangoli participant Anusha Sinha (name changed) whose theme was ‘Girl Child’ said, “Being a girl child I realize the difficulties in a girls life, I am lucky enough to escape most of them but my heart comes out for other girl children in our country who continue to suffer.”

The mehendi designs were applied in various styles. Arabic, Indian and Marvadi were some of them. These designs were judged based upon neatness, and creativity.  A few students even added glitter to the designs to give that special touch. As the participants got an opportunity to show their talent, the volunteers got free mehendi put on their hands! In Tattoo Art, delicate designs were painted on the arms of students who were interested. The tattoos that were put on were temporary of course, the college wouldn’t be able to deal with angry parents otherwise! Ad Zap saw a side of medical students that isn’t usually associated with them. Each team had 4 members and 20 minutes to market a product and the results were hilarious and smart. One of the judges commented, “I didn’t know medical students were good salesmen too !”

Over all, the competitions were organised very smoothly and the students were amazed to find hidden talents among each other, things they didn’t know their best friend could do so well! This amalgam of fun and studies had given the Apollo College of Physiotherapy students a nice break and refreshed their minds before the upcoming exams.
