Splendid – would be the apt word to describe the first day of Agnitraya4.0. As various teams faced off each other in a variety of arts and sports events; the ambience in the campus was electric. In an auspicious start to the 3-day event, the inaugural lamp was lighted in the presence of a 300 plus audience including Chief Guest, Mr. Amit Verma, IFS and Director of Jim Corbett National Park, Guest of Honour Mr. Ashish Gupta, MD of Ashish Builders and Developers, faculty, students of IIM Kashipur, contestants from other institutes and school children from various schools in Kashipur who were in for a tour of the campus as part of Agnitraya 4.0.
Glitz and glamour ruled cultural events as talents reached their fore with Dance performances and Fashion Show. SRCC, Delhi emerged the winners in both the Solo Dance and Dance off contests. BITS Ghaziabad was crowned the fashionistas of the evening.
A fusion of fiery passion and sportsman spirit guided the teams in various sports events. A slightly proud host won the qualifiers of Carrom, Chess, Frisbee and Volleyball second match. St Xaviers’, Jaipur and IIM Kashipur won the qualifiers of Basketball and Volleyball first match.
A train of comedy by the “Chain Jokers” winded up the major events and was the highlight of the day. The best part is that it is a 24*7 live campus and there are several interesting games going on till Day 2 events start.
And last but not the least, it was a homecoming day for several alumni who proudly seeked their roots and returned to their alma mater for a three-day visit.
