From the start of the session starting from 1st January of 2021, the students of the MBA second batch of Tech and Innovation, have been studying online with few possibilities to interact with each other in-person and develop a bond of friendship. The students knew each other by their voices rather than their faces and their personalities. There was always a sense of hope and excitement in the back of our minds that one day, all of the students of MBA Tech and Innovation would gather under the same roof and interact.
The desire for all of the students to meet up was incubated with initiation from Prof. Krishna Khanal (MBA Program Director), Mr. Gaurab Raj Pandey (MBA Tech & Innovation Program Coordinator) and a team consisting of the members from the second batch of Tech and Innovation came into existence with the objective of executing a fruitful gathering program. After almost a month of planning and discussion, the team finalized a comprehensive program called the भेट घाट Event. The objective of the event was to shape a friendly environment for the students to open up and get to know each other, focusing on a networking modality among students from various professional backgrounds, all while having fun and at the same time gaining some insights about King’s College.
The event was set on a Saturday and keeping everyone’s schedule in mind, the event was timed to start from 2:30 pm. The event started with an opening speech from the students of the organizing committee. A lot of fun activities with prizes such as name wording, creating a flag, and Chinese whispers were conducted with the addition of musical chairs on the demand of the students. We enjoyed the games to the fullest. Alongside the fun activities, a barrage of insightful discussions was also held to enable the students to share their thoughts and with the college administration. Nonetheless, the program ended amazingly with a bunch of smiling faces who were well acquainted with one another.
The event was made possible because of the effort of five volunteering students and the actively participating students. Prof. Khanal and Mr. Pandey deserve much of the credit for initiating the program and facilitating the necessary logistics and arrangements for making the program run smoothly. The event was made to be fun, interactive, and constructive but it turned out to be a bigger success than we have ever fathomed. The efforts of the students of MBA Tech and Innovation; Santosh, Yukti, Subash, Jayesh, Priyanka, Aakanshya with the beautiful musical support from Palam made the program feel lively. With a high hope of doing a similar event again in the future with the students of King’s College, we would like to thank all of the individuals who actively participated in making the event successful.
