Speaking on the occasion, the governor said: “Just reading a lot of books at one point in your lives is not enough. Learning is an on-going task and we must ensure that every day that we live is better than the last. That can only happen if we read as reading is a must to improve not just our learning curve, but to become better human beings and to learn through a fun experience.

That is why such festivals are a must for our nation.” The day commenced with a session on "Learning through Role Play and Drama" by Atif Badar. One of the highlights of the day was the launch event "Chutki ke Rang, Bachon ke Sang," featuring the National Book Foundation's unveiling of five books in collaboration with ITA and Room to Read.

Educational sessions included an engaging theatre workshop by Abuzar Malik, offering participants a hands-on experience in the art of performance and storytelling. Film screenings by SOC Films unfolded thought-provoking narratives, providing a cinematic journey. WWF representatives led climate and water conservation discussions, enhancing the critical need for environmental awareness.
