Lakshya-2015, the Intramural Sports Meet Takes off at HBS
The Two-Day Annual Intramural Sports Meet of Hyderabad Business School (HBS), GITAM University, “Lakshya-2015”, was inaugurated on 4 September 2015 at HBS Campus. The torch lit by Prof. S.S. Prasada Rao, Dean & Director, HBS, and Prof. N. Siva Prasad, Director-GITAM School of Technology, and carried around the grounds by relay runners, formally marked the inaugural of this annual sports celebration.
Speaking on this occasion, Prof. Prasada Rao explained the importance of games to the management discipline itself. They teach one to face challenges, accept hurdles and receive victories with grace. He stressed on the necessity to keep oneself fit physically and mentally at all times. It is wholehearted participation rather than winning which is emphasised at HBS.
Prof. Siva Prasad said that physical appearance has its own appeal in life and career. Persons with good physique command more attention and respect. He also explained how GITAM University is providing all facilities for students to practice a variety of indoor and outdoor sports and games. Sri D.V.V. S.R. Varma, Resident Director, GITAM University, Hyderabad Campus, said that it is through games that we learn how and when to exercise our freedom, to submit to authority or to chart our own territory.
Dr. S. Suman Babu, Convenor of Lakshya-2015, said that this year’s sports meet facilitates matches between the first year and second year MBA students of HBS in indoor games such as Chess, Carroms and Table Tennis, and outdoor games such as Basket Ball, Football, Volleyball, Badminton, Throw Ball and Cricket, for both men and women. Student coordinators, Anirudh and Vennela Purnima, explained the schedule to the participants.
