All newbies were interested in knowing about mozilla and its products. An idea about mozilla products was given like Thunderbird, Persona, Firebug, Webmaker etc. Next session was taken by Mr. Meghraj Suthar, he gave a brief introduction about open source. Actually students were not aware of open source. Today they realized that how their freedom is different than actual freedom.

He also told them about various open source communities and how to contribute in those communities? Students were quite happy to see what they can do in open source and how they can customize any open source product according to there need.

I think you can clearly see happiness on their face, they were really excited :). Open source lovers.

Next session was taken by Mr. Osho Parth, describing in depth about open source and making session pretty interesting by asking them simple questions and rewarding every answer with some cool goodies.
