ORGANISERS: M.Sc. (Previous)
Every year, February is a much awaited month, as it brings with itself Spardha, our Annual Departmental Sports Day. It is a day when the students and staff all come together out into the field and indulge in a variety of games and races. Following tradition, this year too Spardha was organized on 7th February, Friday. It was a sunny winter morning and everyone was in their athletic forms, setting the perfect environment for a Sports Day. Loud music blared through the speakers, which further added to the enthusiasm of everyone!
The day started with the usual putting up of the banner, marking race tracks on the ground with chalk powder, and the Departmental group photograph. Following all this, the races commenced! Our juniors did a commendable job in organizing a plethora of races, like 200m race, lemon race, sack race, slow cycling race and 3 legged race. There were also games like dog and the bone, and blindfolded sponge water race, which were really enjoyed by everyone!
This was followed by light refreshment, and the event resumed with Cricket for girls and boys, which is always the center of attraction of our event. Mixed with cheering, music and a lot of excitement, the sport ended with respective winning teams, out of which Vishal was declared the Man of the Match, and Mansi was the Woman of the Match! After a wholesome lunch, we had tug of war, musical chairs for the staff, and finally the Prize Distribution Ceremony. The winners were awarded by our respected Professors and their photographs were clicked, and the ones who did not win were definitely rewarded with memories of a lifetime!
The day ended on a positive note with a friendly Badminton match amongst the students. At around 5:30 pm, we unwillingly stopped playing and started wrapping up. We would like to thank Abhishek Glass Industrial Corporation for sponsoring the event. We are also very grateful to our faculty, staff and other students for their exuberant participation, due to which the event was a grand success! Last but not the least, we are immensely thankful to Arpit Tyagi, Ritu Mann and the other organizers for their immense hard work in organizing the event successfully.
