All the NSS candidates woke up at 6:00AM. After this they began the day by burning fire wood so as to get warm bathing water. This task was found to be challenging by many of the students as it is an activity seldom performed in the city. After this the students had a sumptuous breakfast. The students then went campaigning door to door to spread awareness about women’s rights. This included educating the women folk about their rights and various schemes specially designed for the empowerment of women. During this activity leaflets providing information were also distributed. This was followed by lunch.
