Dawn of a Brand New Day
The Gymkhana Awards function and the Final Year Farewell was held on Tuesday, 18th April. The outgoing G.Secs and the VP presented their reports and passed on the torch to the new guardians of the flame. Deepak Rathee, the new VP, introduced his new team. Out of the 6 G.Secs., for whom the elections were just a formality by virtue of their being uncontested, the G.Secs. Soc-Cult, Arijit Gautam and Sidharth Singh could not make it to the function. The G.Secs. who were present were those for Sports and Games, Gaurav Taneja and Indrajit Mal and for Technology, Aniket and Shuvo Banerjee. The new undersecretaries are:
Badminton: Debashish Sarangi, Hockey: Vikash Kumar, Aquatics: Sushil Tiwari, Gymnastics: Diwakar Kumar, Literary: Nikhil Agarwal, Basketball: Nimisha Saxena, Athletics: Prashant Rajoria, Entertainment: Mrinal Kumar Mishra, Indoor Games: Anuj Gupta, Tennis: Bipin Kumar Dubey, Fine Arts: Amit Kumar, Photography: Manish Kumar, Journal: Arka Halder, Cricket: Tokala Praneeth Kr. Raja, Football: Parived Parashar, TFS: Nitin Garg, Dramatics: Tanuj Dora, Volley: Rajesh Kumar, Web: Shekhar Anand.
Apart from this Institute Blues, Order of Merit, and Honourable Mentions were given out to outgoing students for distinguished performances in Sports, Soc-Cult and Technology, what struck the eye was the fact that the Smt. Chandiramani, Bhandarkar and Prof. G S Sanyal cups for best outgoing student in Soc-Cult, Sports & Technology respectively, as well as Ashutosh Mukherjee Cup for the best voluntary contribution to Gymkhana were not given this year. The reason being quoted is that the outgoing batch didn’t have anyone eligible for any of these awards.
Apart from the above, Alumni Cup for Sports was jointly awarded to Amritanshu and Prashant Thakur whereas Alumni Cup for Soc-Cult was awarded to Kumar Puneet. Amongst the Hall awards, B.C. Roy Hall received the Gardening Cup and the other cups and the General Championships were given away to the respective winners. (See pages 6-8 for details)
The Scholars’ Avenue team congratulates all the award winners and the new officebearers of the Gymkhana and wishes all of them the very best in their future endeavors.
