We are all set for the valedictory ceremony of MADHYASTHAM UPES FEST’21.

This COVID-19 situation has changed our way of living a lot and still, we are adopting this new normal. There was a time when we used to gather for fests and go through the ups and downs together. But now we held meetings on online platforms and sort all problems virtually. It proves that no matter what when there is a team working together no obstacles matter in front of their courage and dedication.

We would like to thank each of you who has contributed to this MADHYASTHAM UPES FEST’21 and raised it to a grand success. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our faculty coordinators and Prof.(Dr.) Vijay Kumar Singh, Dean, UPES School of Law for giving us their valuable time and having faith in us in organising such a big event via virtual mode.
