It’s time for the GC wars again – and the major battles shall be fought in this semester. On the social and cultural front, all big group events in the Dramatics, Entertainment and Fine Arts category are coming up in quick succession. The current standings show last year Golden GC winners RK to be leading by almost a hundred points ahead of Azad followed by LLR.
With 14 more events to go, there’s no saying how things would finally turn out. But we are surely looking forward to a lot of good competition and less of cancellations and postponement. Needless to say, a lot many night-outs are soon to find impassioned students who are dedicated to winning laurels for their respective halls. Here’s wishing the best to all the halls and hoping to see a lot of creativity, talent and might being showcased through the upcoming InterHall events.
With the dawn of the new semester it’s time again for sweaty practice sessions, strategy making and fierce battles in the playing arena. All but two events are to take place in this semester and like last year this year’s sports G.C is also heading towards a very exciting finish.
With golds in Athletics and Aquatics Nehru has its nose ahead. RK with gold in water polo is next, followed by Patel who bagged silver in athletics. But a look at the events to follow is enough to know that the battle is far from over.
With strong teams in volleyball, table tennis, badminton and basketball, RK has all the ammunition to blast its way to the top for the second time in succession. Patel will surely look to hit the top gear in this semester. They haven’t a lost a game in cricket for 2 years now and they can also score points in weightlifting, basketball, badminton and lawn tennis. They could be in with a really good chance if they are able to repeat their winning performance in football. Though Nehru has a handsome lead in its kitty, the road ahead is not all that smooth. They will have to steal points here and there and do well in events like football in which no particular team has an edge. Azad with Hockey and weightlifting and RP with Hockey, Tennis, Table tennis and basketball will make their presence felt but a disappointing first semester has almost made it impossible for them to win the GC.
There are many twists and turns in store in this race and who knows, a few points here and there might just do the trick!
The Tech GC got off to a rather slow start with just three of the eight planned inter-halls being held in the autumn semester. Of these, only two results are available, with the Chem Innovations judge presumably dragging his feet.
Techquiz results were mostly decided events outside the quiz itself – the initial winners Nehru were later disqualified when it turned out that one of the members of the team hadn’t registered for any subjects this semester. This follows several disqualifications Nehru has suffered in Soc&Cult events over the same issue. With this RK moves up to first place, and RP and LLR share second.
Product Design results were a repeat of the one in 2004 – Nehru placed first (all registered students this time!) with an adapter for multiple wireless protocols, RP second with a road-building machine, and Patel third with a variable-geometry lens.
With the vast majority of events yet to be held, the fate of the GC is still anybody’s guess.
