    Budding engineers of M S University’s Faculty of Technology and Engineering (FTE) will organize ‘Paramarsh‘ – the biggest non-technical event of west zone this year between September 14 and September 16.This year, Paramarsh is being organized by students with 19 new and unique events categorized in seven different categories. From ‘Your Day: The Oratorical Arena’, ‘Biz-O’-Neur: The Young Turks Hub’, ‘Auction House- Mock bidding’ to online events, the 2012 edition of Paramarsh promises to both hone skills of students and a fun-filled platform.

    Under the category of ‘The Oratorical Arena’, students have planned events like ‘Cat-as-trophe’ (a group discussion), ‘Block-n-tackle’ (debate), ‘The Showdown’ (paper presentation) and ‘The LexIcons’ (based on vocabulary).

    “Keeping in mind the increasing interest of students in techno-commercial exams, we have introduced new events like ‘The LexIcons’ to stress knowledge of English vocabulary. Through this we will offer the students an opportunity to improve their vocabulary. In this competition, other than the vocabulary with fun part, presence of mind, general knowledge and the vocabulary of students will be also checked. The participant will have to use his general yet unique knowledge of words to move ahead in this game,” says FTE student Ameya Dixit.

    These apart, there will be events like ‘The 22nd Yard’ which will introduce cricket in a new format, ‘Wall-E-Ball’ which is different from the normal volleyball as an opaque black cloth is kept instead of a net.

    “We will be organsing ‘Goonj’, a street play for social cause where students will give the call of social awakening on topics such as unemployment, corruption, female infanticide among others. Similarly, ‘9!- Mathematical treasure hunt’ will provide the participants opportunity to do a treasure hunt by solving clues based on application of basic maths,” adds Dixit.

    The three days’ extravaganza will also include ‘Smokin’ Aces- War Of the Bands’, ‘Biz-mantra- multi stage treasure hunt’, ‘The Prime suspect- crime scene investigation’, ‘Etch-a-sketch’ and ‘W3 hunt- the online treasure hunt’.
