Durga Puja remains to be one of the most culturally rich festivals celebrated across India and Noida’s Sector 61 added a streak of technology to it. Every year the sector 61 has a new theme for the Puja, this year’s theme was electric mobility. In fact, the Durga idol immersion was to be carried out on electric vehicle. Anuj chakravarthy, secretary of Sector 61 told us that his idea was to send a greater message to the crowd than just the entertainment.Our robot completed their idea like a missing piece of puzzle.
Mitra was graced by the presence of high commissioner of Bangladesh, Mr.Syed Muazzem Ali. We met a rare mix of people at the event. Some of them were curious to have casual chats, some were really excited about Mitra taking their pictures while a few students were asking questions on Artificial Intelligence and bringing their expertise to the table.
