Successful maiden effort

Over 50 colleges recently participated in Sindhi College’s maiden IT fest ‘Sintron’, which proved to be quite a success.

 Participants of the rangoli-making competition.

Students participated in a variety of events like coding and debugging, CS gaming, online painting, ‘rangoli’ making, IT quiz, poster designing, web designing, photography presentation, debate, music mixing, spell bee, morphing and the much awaited IT treasure hunt.

The fest was inaugurated by the chairmen Prakash Narang and Jagadish Ahuja, who insisted that one must always be ready to adopt and adapt to new opportunities. They also observed that the real fun lies in participation while winning determines the best one.

Kristu Jayanti College (KJC) won the overall championship trophy. Ajith, a student of KJC, participated in the coding and debugging event and won the second prize. With great excitement, he says, “I really enjoyed the fest – the atmosphere was full of life and the hospitality we received was great. Our team of 15 students from the college won most of the prizes and so, we all had a blast.” 

For others, it was an excellent opportunity to understand their individual shortcomings.
“It was a good platform to showcase our skills and we learnt to be more creative and innovative in the areas we were lacking. There was tough competition from the other colleges. But we emerged winners in the end and had a really memorable time,” says Daniel, another participant from KJC.

The BCA volunteers of the college did a good job with the way they designed and organised this extravaganza.

 “It was something new that we came up with and we learnt how to practically implement what we study in our curriculum. We had to go into the minor details of many of the subjects related to the events. Personally, I gained a lot of knowledge from the IT treasure hunt. We also learnt event management skills through the fest,” shares Sahil Kulkarni, a volunteer of Sindhi College.
