When they were asked to show their work, Vijesh Meena (19 yr) very enthusiastically opened up his folder to showcase all creative files. Tara Meena (13 yr.) projected a beautiful building with national flag waving at top.

After the program completion some of them will get chance to work with Eden Studio itself, based on there project work.
