Win over world
There was an unusual calm in the air early morning yet again. The team WOW was in campus once again for yet another round of activities. The seniors were geared up for the challenge, trying to maximize the opportunity. With the dawn of the day the hostel corridor was buzzing with activity. A series of team building exercises were planned to get the best out of students. While most eluded sleep, few were still drowsy.
A special team was put in place for the activity. Operation “Win over world” (WOW) was planned to make us realize the value of “team work”, to inculcate “team spirit” and of course have lots of fun.
The activity panned across two days, with the first day involved the PGDM 2015-17 batch and the 2nd day involved the PGDM 2016-18 batch. The brain behind the activities had come with different purposes. While the first day’s activities were planned on giving lessons on corporate values, the second day was more of a bonding activity. Different games required different traits from the students. While some demanded physical strength, others required tactic. Every individual was seen putting in his/her best.
The activities required team work, adaptability, planning, mutual-trust and communication. Each task touched upon different attributes of management. The activities required high degree of communication amongst team players, honing problem-solving skills, creativity and instilling faith among the teams. Tug of war in the rain was the highlight of the day. As the day progressed, the involvement reached a crescendo and so did the fun and frolic. There were emotions, smiles, high fives, punches in the air and a few disappointments. Still there was enough friendliness in the air to make students feel lively. Quite a few individuals stood out with their enthusiasm and that lifted everyone’s spirits. There were tired faces at the end, but each one of us indeed had learning and memories to take back, few that will be etched forever!
The WOW again had a lot in store for everyone. The days were fun and the purpose of it all seemed justified. The IMI unit was much more passionate and a sense of belonging was felt. As it is, everyone will eagerly wait for the next installment of WOW.
