The purpose of the cell as well as its activities over the years was explained to the newly inducted members. This was followed by an interactive session with the new student members who had all their queries answered and clarified.

Creative Expressions and Fund Raiser
The annual event ‘Creative Expressions: …Towards a Gender Just World’ became inter collegiate from this year, with student participation from other colleges. This competition is held every year to bring out students’ perceptions of a gender just world through visual art as well as other creative events like essay writing, poetry and photography. The theme for this year was Body Image. Students were provided with a number of mediums to paint on, such as ceramics, fabrics, canvas bags and handmade folders. The handcrafted items made by the students as part of the ‘Creative Expressions Competition’ were put up for sale to raise funds for the GIC. A bake sale, pani puri stall and games were part of the fundraiser as well.
