Principal Dr. Neerja Dhingra while presenting her views about this event said that Mrs. Sushma Paul Berlia (Chairperson, Apeejay Education) is always a source of inspiration for us and she herself being a successful business woman inspires and motivates us to practice such teaching methodologies that are fun and educative at the same time. After attending the event, Dr. Dhingra said that the event should have been named Ecotainment as the students had lot of fun in the programme but they learnt about the principles and theories of Economics as well.

The event opened with the recitation of poem titled – Ishq-e- Economics by Riya and Manya (Bsc Economics Semester 5th). The poem expressed that even the soft emotions as love and affection can be expressed using the jargons of Economics. This was followed by Kashm-a-kash, in which several scenes/photographs from the national and international cinema were shown to the students and questions were asked on the basis of the same.

Also, the students- Shreya Agarwal, Lakshita Joshi, Aditya Bhasin, Chirag Relan, Vanshika Arora, Purnima Narsingh and Kavya dramatised a street play that was centralised on the basic issues that are prevalent in Punjab and overall India.
