Creativity is contagious, pass it on.

Albert Einstein said “Creativity is Contagious, pass it on”. Since there is a lack of official platforms to show case our youth’s creativity, we organized an Art exhibition and competition at our university in which students of various institutions participated to show their hidden talent.
After seeing their creative work, I was pleasantly surprised that the students, who haven’t study arts, can be so good at painting, calligraphy and sketching. Students pursuing their degrees in computer science, mass communication/journalism, engineering, business administration and law were exceptional at their creativity through art. Just have a look.

Beautiful paintings, calligraphy and sketching by undergraduate students are very delightful.
I have much more beautiful work to share, but through this blog post I just want to say that we should promote youth’s creativity and should praise them for their strengths. The problem is that, very talented students here don’t get the appreciation they deserve. It should be the responsibility of Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage to hunt out the talent and promote it at every possible level.
