In order to enliven the college environment and break the monotony of regular books and classes, the students promoted this mega event comprising of three activities/ tasks, giving opportunity for every student to get involved, participate and enjoy. The three activities that were a part of this event were –

- Search your company (Text Search)
The students were randomly divided into groups of six. Each group was then given a set of three activities which they were supposed to complete in a stipulated time line of 1 hour. The winners were decided on the basis of summated score of the group on all the three activities. The groups contested for first, second and third positions. Certificate as well as cash prizes were given to the winners, to encourage them and motivate them by Principal Dr.Mainish Mittal. The students of Kaizen club who were involved in designing and executing the events were given also given certificates to appreciate their contribution in the event. The contribution of Ravi Morya, Nupur Jadhav and Gauri Gautam ( all sem IV students) in planning and executing this event was noteworthy. The entire faculty team of Kaizen club including Prof Vaishali M, Prof Vikas Jain and Prof Naman Shrivastav were actively involved in executing the event.
