In the 1980’s, apart from events such as Indian Classical Music, Indian Light Music, Western Group and Western Solo music competitions, Quiz, Music Quiz, and Debate, there were also several writing events such as Creative Writing. This event had prose (short story) and poetry for the first stage followed by one’s attempts at a stream of one-liners to cartoons, and doodles.
