On 26th of July, 2018 the students of AIL headed to the Multi Purpose Hall for the first Thursday activity of the academic session :  The AD-MAD Competition.

The rules of the competitions were simple, all the participating groups had 5 minutes to enact a small skit in which they advertised a certain product. The students made use of various props, music, slogans and jingles to promote their products, much to the amusement of the audience. All the participants put up jocular performances which filled the air with merriment and levity.

As the performances drew to a close, the judges deliberated among themselves and two teams from the first year were declared as winners of the competition.
