Students were able to identify and correlate most of what they are studying in the class. They had a better awareness and appreciation of the forces of nature along with the beauty of the port which is something we usually just take for granted. The efforts taken by M/s ADANI Ports for its maintenance and infrastructure were immensely heartening to see. The students showed a lot of enthusiasm in understanding each and every aspect of the port.
