On the hunt for the best

On the hunt for the best

Revelation 2013

Revelation 2013’, the annual management festival of Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, was recently conducted on the college’s campus.

 This is touted to be one of the best management festivals in the City and the participants who came for it certainly had a lot of expectations.

The fest lived up to this title, though — with a slew of events related to management, it proved to be the perfect forum for budding managers to showcase their talent and prove their mettle in a competitive environment.

All the events in ‘Revelation 2013’ were centred around a different and interesting theme — ‘recrudescence’, which refers to the revival of something which has previously been destroyed. The assumption was that true to the Mayan prediction, the world had ended on December 21 of last year — cities were destroyed, continents wiped out and billions dead in the blink of the eye.

In the aftermath of this annihilation, the few countries and people which did survive have a tough task ahead of them — the rebuilding process. Keeping this situation in mind, the participants of the fest had to engage in a battle of wits with each other, to prove they could actually ‘restore the world to its former glory’.

There were many events held as part of the fest, which focussed on different aspects of their course material. From ‘Sellocalypse’, the marketing event to ‘Bretton Woods Reloaded’, the finance competition, students had ample fronts on which to prove their mettle.

There were also ‘Efficens Procurato’, based on operations; ‘Resourection’, an HR event; ‘Primus Electus’, or the hunt for the best manager and ‘Quizzosseum’, the business quiz. The themes and titles of the different events spoke volumes of the creativity of the organisers of ‘Revelation 2013’, as well as the time and effort that had gone into putting the entire fest together. Some of the colleges that participated included Christ College, St Joseph’s College of Commerce and IBS, Bangalore, among others.

With cash prizes of Rs 10,000 up for grabs, there was a lot of competition between the students.
This was especially the case for ‘Primus Electus’, since the hunt for the best manager is one of the main events at all management fests. Eventually, this prize was won by Timmy Thomas, from St Joseph’s College of Business Management. His college also won the best college trophy.
