IIM Lucknow's Varchasva 2011 concludes

3 activity filled days witnessed 16 sports events and 16 cultural events

IIM Lucknow's three day annual sports and cultural extravaganza Varchasva 2011 was held from 30th September 2011 – 2nd October 2011. A total of 32 competitive events (16 in Sports category and 16 in cultural category) were held interspersed with various cultural performances by popular artisans.

IIM Lucknow's Varchasva 2011 witnessed the participation from 28 different colleges including IIM Indore, MDI Gurgaon, S P Jain Institute Mumbai, IIFT Delhi, FMS Delhi, IMT Ghaziabad, IIM Ranchi, IIM Udaipur, IIM Rohtak, NMIMS Mumbai, IIT Kanpur and NIFT Rae Bareli. A total footfall of over 4000 students, 1200 registrations, 600 participants, all this made Varchasava one of the biggest student’s fest this year.

Inauguration of IIM Lucknow's Varchasva 2011 was by noted film maker and poet Mr. Muzaffar Ali. The inaugural ceremony was followed by an evening of classical music "Samavesh". Spell binding performances by Hindustani classical vocalist Ms. Madhumita Ray and Mohan Veena player Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt left every one enthralled.

Day two saw two exciting performances – “Hand shadowgraphy” performance by India’s Got Talent performers Amar Sen and Sabyasachi Sen followed by a mesmerizing Gotipua (Folk Dance from Odisha) performance by Vijay Sahoo and troupe. This was IIM Lucknow's Varchasva 2011's attempt to promote lesser known art forms of India. The fest climax on Day 3 was the performance by Bollywood Playback Singer Suraj Jagan.

The home team IIM Lucknow won most of the sporting honours – cricket, soccer, volleyball, badminton, swimming and squash competitions. Joint winners of the athletics event were IIM Lucknow and IMT Ghaziabad. A new sporting event “Futsal – quicker variant of soccer” which was introduced this year turned out to be very popular.

Among the cultural events, The Fashion Parade was won by the team from NIFT, Rae Bareilly who had showcased their designs with a theme of world culture. The English Music Band Competition was won by Chaotic Mantra and Indian Music Band Competition was won by Brahmastra from Pune. The stage play competition Antarnaad, was won by Babu Banarasi Das National Institute of Technology and Management, Lucknow (BBDNITM) which also won the street play competition.

IIM Lucknow dominated the Literary and Quiz Competitions with the teams winning first position in “Literary Gladiators” – a 16 hours gruelling quizzing event, JAM and word games. The RJ Hunt was won by Shantanu Tripathi, student of BBDNIT. The event was judged by RJ Prateek from 93.5 Red FM.

The exclusive website of the fest www.varchasva.in had recorded more than 1.5 lakh hits since its launch on 6th September 2011. A mid sized online campaign with over 1600 fans on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube was also being run for Varchasva 2011. A segment of Varchasva 2011 where competitions like Online quizzes, essay writing, cartoon and movie are being organised was launched on 20th September 2011.

Varchasva 2011 is an attempt to break away from the misconception that management does not gel with sports and culture. One can clearly see that the future leaders of the corporate world not only are competitive in the field of management but also are well aware about our rich cultural and traditional heritage and are equally competitive in a sporting event.

From a modest beginning in 1984, Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIML) has now grown into a fully integrated global management school. The guiding philosophy of the school, throughout, has been creation of knowledge, influencing management practices and integrate globally. The objectives of imparting education, combined with creation, dissemination and application of knowledge, are being met in an integrated form, to create a synergetic impact.
