The panelists included various scholars who had immense theoretical as well as practical knowledge about the subject. Very informative, interesting and thought-provoking were some of the feedbacks students gave. 

The panel discussion was followed by an interactive session in which the students could vent out their opinion and ask their queries. This was followed by a cultural programme in which students showcased their dancing and singing skills to various tunes, lightening the atmosphere among the audience.

The most awaited and exciting part of Sambandh 2013 was the prize distribution ceremony. At the end of which the overall class trophies were announced. This was secured by the first year EPS students.

But definitely Sambandh achieved its objective of kindling the spirit of togetherness among students and also enlightening the students in the academic forefront.
