Learning the ways and culture of different countries opens one's mind. It expands their knowledge by not limiting their opinions to one particular region. With "ISA Project Day 2019" and the effort taken to make it successful, the students had gained a new perspective. They not only understood the different aspects of our country, but also came to know about the various facets of many other nations.
