Budding managers' successful venture


It was Surana College’s first inter-collegiate management fest. But Utkarsh 2010 turned out to be a successful venture.

Not only were requests for registration pouring in till the last minute, they also managed to include students of all streams in the management fest.

 It was like every individual had a role to play, much like their theme Chessboard.
The two-day event comprised of an array of events. With over 40 teams, from various parts of the State, the first day saw the preliminary rounds of various management related events like Best Manager, Entrepreneur, Human Resource, Marketing, Finance, and Quiz.

“The evening was fun as the Mad Ad teams from various colleges came forward and presented their gigs,” said Arundhathi, a student.

It was on the second day of the festival that the colleges became very competitive and  the tempo was set.

The stage was ready for the final rounds and the talented bunch of Surana students surely knew how to keep the energy of the crowd going.

“We didn’t want even a minute to be wasted on the stage and we needed the crowd to be upbeat throughout the programme. So, every time the stage was empty, we decided to do impromptu events,” said Sudhir, the student co-ordinator.

While many of the impromptu events had students showcasing their various talents, it was the bitter gourd juice-drinking competition that was most funny and innovative.

Many in the crowd roared and cheered as the participants came on stage to gulp the bitter gourd juice at one go.

The final round for the Best Manager saw the students sweat it out in front of the judges who were grilling them with questions.

This was followed by a dance programme by cultural teams of various colleges who then took to the stage.

 The most awaited event of the two-day fest was the dance and fashion show organised by the students themselves.

Be it the jatkas of the Munni Badnam song or the graceful contemporary dances, the dance moves were a delight to watch.

From the shrilling cheers to the never-ending hoots, Surana students were not short of enthusiasm even for a minute.

“This is the first time that the college has managed a fest like this and I think they did a great job,” said Prathibha, from another college.

The fest culminated with a valedictory ceremony.

Even though Christ University was the overall winner of the fest, in their own way each of the participants, returned home feeling like a winner.
