In the evening, nukkad naataks (street plays) were enacted by students to convey important messages related to women empowerment. The audience witnessed some splendid performances by the two groups-‘Aayam’ and ‘Psychokeeda’. While Aayam addressed the issue of eve-teasing, Psychokeedas depicted the trials and tribulations faced by a woman in different phases of her life.
