Competitiveness Learners at IITB Celebrate Independence Day Differently

To the nature showering incessant blessings through rain on the business capital of India and its IIT, we prayed for a small window, so that the participants of our biathlon, who were eager to donate their sweat for a cause on such an auspicious day, can come out in larger numbers. The members of the core organizing team from the Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management (SJMSOM), IITB course “International Competitiveness” who had worked hard were pleasantly surprised, when they started the meeting at @ 5:10 AM and saw beautiful clear skies. The nature was really with us, as it allowed the diverse audience from school girls, who all completed the biathlon, to veteran professors and IIT alumni from leading marathon firm of India participated in great spirits. A glimpse of the energy is visible in the photo. Many of them were first timers for a biathlon, still they participated and completed in spirit. The activity is organized by the core team consisting of mostly the learners of the unique competitiveness course as a social responsibility towards a worthy cause. Several learners and the participants practice and explore next level challenges, such as triathlon, swimathon and beyond. The energetic alumni of the course are doing well and building capabilities to climb heights in personal and professional lives. We acknowledge support of all the volunteers, institute management and other key stakeholders.
