Neha Das, Nov 27, 2012, DHNS:

COLLEGE FEST

Marking 50 years of excellence of leadership in International Business Education and Research, Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) organised its annual fest ‘Quo Vadis 2012’.

The three-day management and cultural fest held from November 23–25 witnessed scintillating performances, informative knowledge sessions, entertaining theatre shows, and many more fun-filled activities.

The City’s Lt. Governor Tejendra Khanna, as chief guest on the occasion encouraged students to follow the path of ethics in business environment. He also emphasised the role of international business in the current global economic scenario.

The fest kick-started with a performance by the Bhatts - comprising Grammy award winner Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt; Canadian Grammy nominee Salil Bhatt and Limca book world record holder Satvik Bhatt. The splendid performance captivated the audiences and built the momentum for the fest.

Enumerating on Quo Vadis, Surajit Mitra, Director IIFT, said, “IIFT has been a leader since 50 years in international business education and research. However, the institute does not restrict itself to classroom teaching or oratory world of knowledge and instead extends its boundaries to plethora of management and cultural activities.

Quo Vadis is our sincere effort to provide a platform to the students for their overall development by breaking the cocoon of conventional classroom teaching.”

With intent to give the students a chance to share a common platform with eminent industry stalwarts, a series of guest lecturers were also organised. Some of the renowned corporate honchos who were a part of the knowledge summit were Sachin Bhatia, Sales Director at Accenture, Ajay Singh, Deputy General Manager Electronics at Bharti Walmart India, Vijay Sehgal, Vice President at Sales and Marketing at Reliance Communications, etc. amongst many others.

The second day of fest was marked by a magical performance by Rishi Inc., a group of music lovers who firmly believe that music is the universal language of mankind. They seemed to have lived up to their belief as they held the mood of the audiences by bringing out serenity, purity and authenticity of the motherland through their divine music.

The curtains of the fest were drawn with a heart-warming performance by the man with a golden voice – Lucky Ali. His performance reflected a subtle manifestation of emotions expressed in an energetic and harmonious manner. The audiences danced to the tunes of his never to be forgotten and enticing songs like Shaam savere, Ek pal ka jeena, Na tum jano na hum.

Held annually in November, Quo Vadis is the flagship management and cultural festival of IIFT and has been instituted with an intent to pave a common platform for students from various walks of life.
