                    “Organizers of the treasure event guessed it right”

The fest committee of our college organised ROAD TO ADHIKOSH, 2 days ago, which is a treasure hunt event, named after our college Fest- ‘ADHIKOSH’, which is expected to be held in February 2020. 

The treasure hunt kicked off and each team was handed their first clue. The clue is cryptic and once you break the code, it’ll lead you to some location in the campus. It has been only few months for us (1st year students), having been a part of this college and those clues led us to places where we’ve never been or heard of before. Hence, that was absolutely a perfect opportunity for newbies to explore the huge (60 acre to be precise) and beautiful campus, we have.

Our fest committee worked really hard to set and put the clues smartly and fairly, which justifies the title given to this article.

We were eager to know who won the event at last and what was the ‘treasure’ the team found. It was nothing but a puzzle, which solved into a beautiful picture of waterfall that is located right in our college. 

Each one of us have amazing memories of the event, regardless of whether we won or not.

Sports committee of NIBM organized a box cricket event amongst the senior and junior batch to promote the spirit of team work, leadership and sportsmanship. It was a fun event to destress and bond with our batchmates and seniors. It's just one of the many fun activities that are a part of life in NIBM.
