Then the group discussions started. These group discussions were continuing until 12pm with the guidance of all community medicine lectures. After lunch, at 1pm we continued our group discussion. At 2pm Dr. Sawri Rajan gave a lecture on Water supply, Environmental Sanitation & Nutrition. Around 3pm, we continued with the group discussion.
