QUEEN’S ROAD: To demonstrate how to “unravel the genius within,” Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) organised various management and cultural events as part of its four-day national inter-collegiate fest, Nityaksh 2015. The fest, planned by the college cultural committee ‘Rang,’ kicked off on Friday.

 As part of the management related competitions, teams presented sales pitches to market products in events like Arkarious (marketing), while others took part in finance and HR based events. The highlight though was Abhinayam Chanakyam, which tested the students on their political and marketing acumen. Said Ankit Purohit, president of NMIMS, “In the run up to the on-ground event, the teams were asked to form a political party and create a campaign plan. They had to prepare a manifesto and promote themselves on social media platforms. On the day of the event, after conducting an offline propaganda, the teams had to garner votes for their party.” LAN-based gaming events also formed part of the festival.

 On Sunday, around 20 colleges took part in events like dance (both solo and group), singing, drama and theatre and stand-up comedy. Talking about his experience, Adwaith Utthappa, a third year B Com student from Jain University whose team, Legion, performed in the group dance category, said, “We started preparations in the first week of January. It was fun to participate in the fest. We did not come here to win.”

To conclude the four-day extravaganza on a high note, the college will organise a DJ night on Monday at UB City. Performance by Coalition, an EDM ensemble, will be the highlight of the evening.
