Group 1 winner was B Shirsha of Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan, Visakhapatnam. She adopted 'Indoor Gardening' theme to draw the picture.
"I would like to teach everyone indoor gardening as it is one of the easiest way to be close to nature and a great activity for relaxation. To counter pollution, everyone then would be able to do something at their home itself," Shrisha wrote.
