It’s January, and the Cultural Committee of IIM R is preparing behind the misty curtains for the grand show, Infusion, the annual cultural and sports fest. Infusion 2014 will be held on the 18th and 19th of January 2014 in the campus. It is a national level annual event, with participation of institutions across India. IIM R is all set and ready to receive participants from various management institutes including top IIMs. The Silver Sponsor of the event is Punjab National Bank and the title sponsors are Foradian Fedena.
The events in Infusion range from War of bands to games like throwball and badminton. Other events include fashion show, Pro-nite, Street play etc. The fashion show will be a feast to all aesthetics lovers and fashion followers. The stage plays and street plays will unleash the dormant actors among us. There will be a comedy show to tickle the funny bones of all. There is plenty on the plate for game lovers as well. Games include Volleyball, Cricket, Footsal etc. There would be a tug of war to find the strongest teams. For indoor gamers, chess and caroms will be there.
The future managers prove their mettle in different management events. There is ‘Tatva’, the HR case study competition, ‘Marketing Ace’ for marketing wizards, ‘operazione’ for operations enthusiasts, ‘Clepsyddra’ for strategists, ‘Smart Beta’ for finance gurus and ‘Praudhyogiki’ for IT geeks. The various items span across days and nights of 18th and 19th.
Infusion is a strong reminder that there is another side to a B School life than academics and exams. It is the largest extra-curricular event conducted in the institute and these two days and nights are when we switch into the ‘super-talented’ mode and suddenly realise that the awesomeness of the campus has just reached it peak. Also, this is an opportunity for everyone to juxtapose themselves against the best ones of this country.
The previous version of Infusion was received with much enthusiasm. So far, 100+ colleges have sent their registrations for various events, as the countdown reaches 1 more day to go, and a lot many more are expected.
So it is infusion season, jump on the bandwagon, get into the spotlight, and let the overflowing cornucopia of talents mesmerize the crowd!
