XLRI, the premier private B School in India organized Kshitij 2013, the annual flagship event of CII -Yi student committee of XLRI. Kshitij has evolved as a unique platform that to children from tier-2 and tier-3 schools in and around Jamshedpur to showcase their extra-curricular talents across many areas. In its 6th year now, Kshitij has become an event that school children across Jamshedpur look forward to. The event brings together children from all strata of the society and gives them equal opportunity to nurture talent whilst encouraging the quest for knowledge and creativity together. A teacher of a Government vernacular medium school that participated in the fest remarked, “Our schools are always neglected in School fests of renowned city schools but through KSHITIJ we are able to show that our students are equally talented!
Held at XLRI campus on 2nd October, Kshitij 2013 witnessed participation of about 600 students from 25 schools. The children performed magnificently in group events such as Dancing and Street-Plays displaying team spirit and brilliant coordination. They smartly faced Quiz Master Suraj Menon, a national level Quiz Master and a second year student of XLRI at quiz competitions. XLRI students also ideated a unique Picture Story competition to let the creative juices of the students flow freely. The event involved writing a story based on a picture that was shown to the students testing their imagination skills along with writing proficiency. The children amazed judges and spectators alike in the Talent Show with performances like sand art painting, music composition, etc.
Prairna KumarLead of CII Yi XLRI and Head of KSHITIJ organizing committee commented on the occasion, “This year, Kshitij was bigger than ever and the children loved spending their day on the XLRI campus. We had set up a ‘Wish Board’ for the students to write what they want, and it was overwhelming to see how many of them wanted to come to XLRI every day and join the institute when they grow up. This shows that the unique opportunity that these children receive, not only encourages them to nurture their talent further, but also helps them become more ambitious in life.
At the end of the day, the winners received their prizes from the Chief Guest, Deepa Verma, Head of Talent Management, Tinplate Co. of India Limited, who is also an XL alumnus (PMIR Batch of 1984). “Tinplate Co. of India Limited sponsored Kshitij for the fifth year in a row this time, and every time we do that we feel this is the best use of our hard earned money. It is a refreshing change to see the energy-filled smiles of these children even after a whole day of activities. It is a noble initiative by CII Yi and XLRI to provide such a large scale platform to the children of Jamshedpur and have them and we will continue to support this great social endeavor”, she said while thanking the participants and the organizing team.
As a part of the celebration of Joy of Giving Week, XLRI students took special initiatives to ensure that every kid leaves the XLRI campus with a smile, by putting up all the wishes that the children had put on the wishing board on Helium balloons and gave them back to the children along with candy floss to rejoice. It was a sight to remember when all 600 children released their colorful balloons, with innocent wishes written on them, in the XLRI sky, as the Chief Guests popped confetti on them. The underlying message to the children through this event was that each one of them is special and talented in their own way. It is only about recognizing the talent, believing in oneself and working hard to achieve one’s goals.
