“Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy, called guts.”
The Sports committee of SCMHRD organised the much awaited annual “War of Divisions” from 26-Sept-18. It was a 10 days long affair. The objective was to develop in the students the sporting spirit and help them showcase their mettle beyond academic rigours. Sports helps us to build a winning attitude, work in teams, and make strategies on and off the field and learn to believe in a way of life-where you never give up or give in and you always play to win.
Various sporting events, both indoor and outdoor were organised during the course of 10 day event and we are pleased to say that we received participation in huge numbers in different events, from both our 2017-19 and 2018-20 batch.
The games organized were divided into indoor and outdoor games and included Cricket, Volley-ball, football and basketball, Tug of War, Chess, Carrom and Table -Tennis
Keeping the interests of the female participants in mind, events like Throw ball and Basketball were conducted which attracted a lot of crowd cheering for the teams participating
The spectacle of the event, Tug of war, added as an extra spice to the tournament and it pitted two teams against each other in a test of strength: teams pull on opposite ends of a rope, with the goal being to bring the rope a certain distance in one direction against the force of the opposing team’s pull. We got overwhelming participation from both the men’s and women’s division, juniors and seniors were equally excited for this game. The judges for the event were eminent and experienced sports persons having represented Symbiosis University team in their respective events. They judged all the sports events of the day with their fair and unbiased decisions. They helped keep the decorum of the games and oversee the proceedings of the match smoothly with their expertise.
Overall, it was a memorable experience and a welcome break for the students of SCMHRD, away from the hectic academic schedules and stress of a student in an MBA life. It highlighted the importance of the sports, team work, performing under pressure situations, competitive and sporting spirit to our budding future managers.
