Informing about the second day’s program, Dr. Arunesh Parashar described about the quiz program and other main lectures to be delivered.

At the conclusion of the program, Dr. Chinmay Pandya, the Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University, said that many aspects of the revolution of freedom struggle from 1857 to 1942 have been remained untouched. There is still a lot of research to be done on this at large scale. If we go by record, we discover many such evidences which show us that there were many women who took part in the freedom struggle along with men. To see, know and understand such freedom spots, should be a matter of pride for us.
