Getting their adrenaline going

Wide variety

The students of Cambridge Institute of Technology put together ‘Chiguru 2014- Revolutionize and Adrenalize’, a two-day cultural and sports fest recently.

With more than 30 events, students from over 25 engineering colleges and 15 degree colleges, there was a lot to do at the fest. 

The students worked for a month-and-a-half to make it a  fun-filled fest.

Elated that their hardwork was being appreciated, Anu Franklin, an MBA student, who was actively involved said, “A lot of hardwork went into the fest and the feedback that we got has been encouraging.

The co-ordination among students to organise the fest was good. There was a lot of learning that took place. We also realised the challenges involved.

” Describing the fest as a ‘colourful’ one, Sangeetha Ganesh, an MBA student said, “Compared to last year, this time the fest was bigger.

There were students from different colleges who came specially for the fest. Initially, we were nervous as to whether we’d be able to pull off an event of such a large scale. But this has been a confidence booster.”

According to the participants, the highlight of the fest was definitely the fashion show, which attracted a large crowd.

 “The students have been creative with their costumes,” said Anand Kumar, a student. Many students even tried their hand at the eating competition ‘Man vs Food’.
 “It was so much fun to see students trying to stuff themselves with food,” said Nitish, another student.  

Some events like ‘galli cricket,’ he added were also unique to the fest. “There were five to a team for the match. But what we found was that more boys were participating in the game. The girls preferred to play basketball.”  
 Gururaja Karajagi, chairman, Academy of Creative Teaching and the chief guest for the fest, told the students to have a creative mind and unique talent.

Faculty member of Cambridge Institute of Technology, Raghu M said that organising the fest gave the students an idea of what all is involved in organising an event.
 “It was a good exposure for the students. At the same time, they had fun, which is equally important,” he pointed out.
