PARAKRAM ’16, the national level Inter B-school tournament for MBA students was conducted from 11th October 2016 to 13th October 2016. Being a national level sports tournament, a lot of buzz was created in the campus through various innovative promotional activities like Flame Torch, Mascot, Countdown (in mess), Teams T-shirts etc. Promotion was also carried out using social media like Facebook, Instagram, Youtube etc. We also registered on competition sites like My College Fest, etc. for creating awareness about the event. Sportzzz Comm took the initiative to associate PARAKRAM '16 with "Chetana Foundation" for the noble cause of Save Girl Child. Sportzzz Comm celebrated Save Girl Child Day on 6th October 2016, encouraging the college fraternity to wear White clothes and Pink ribbon on this day. The staff members and students also supported and donated to the fund collection drive.All these efforts got overwhelming response as a total of 8 colleges participated and fought for the trophy of PARAKRAM. The event saw participation of around 210 students with a good crowd to support them. Matches were played from 7.00 am in the morning till 11.00 pm in the night. Almost all the teams had practiced before the tournament and this was reflected by their performance on the field. During the event, their participation was really commendable and some amazing sportsmanship and skills was displayed by all the teams. The tournament went down to the wire with both KJS and NICMAR having a chance to win the PARAKRAM. Eventually it was team NICMAR who held their nerves to win the PARAKRAM trophy.
The prize distribution ceremony was held late in the evening on 13th October 2016 at Sports Complex.
There was some great efforts from sub-committees like Mess Committee, Hostel Committee and Media Committee. The event was covered by Pratikriti -the photography club of IMNU. A special mention to all the volunteers who contributed immensely to make PARAKRAM '16 a grand success.
