First prize: Niladri Adhikary

In an universe unknown, we traverse the earth, to know whatever little is to be known.

World is neither  friendly nor hostile, We just need to find our warmth and live our own life.” 

                                                                                                                                           – Prashanth UC

Second prize: Sharat Kolke

Is it a sunrise or sunset, moon rise or moon set ? 

I care the least, as a mountain I stand.

As water I will never cease to flow.” 

                                                  – Prashanth UC

Third prize: Manjunath Bhat

In the mountains I roam, in the meadows I graze.

I put fellow trekkers at ease, this momentary rest, I pray  should never cease ” 

– Prashanth UC
