opportunities to the students from under-resourced schools and to give them a chance to participate
equally on a national level with all the resources needed.”
He said one of the major aim of the competition was to create a bridge between the students from
privileged and underprivileged class.

Such opportunities are an attempt to explore hidden talent of children, students, youngsters and local
artists for promoting and preserving the rich legacy of various art forms as well as refine the talent of students.
