"We have worked hard for more than a week to complete this project. We had to travel more than 100 km back and forth from the campus to a temple in Alor Star to build this wooden veena," David said.
Suresh, who is a third-year finance student, said a fund-raising campaign was initiated five months ago for the project. "We managed to raise RM 29,000."
Indian fine art experts R Karunagaran and S Sarawana were the designers.
