Social Conclave 1.0
The first edition of Social Conclave, organised by NMIMS in collaboration with the United Nations was a power-packed three daylong event, with incisive panel discussions, keynotes, field visits and Q&As. We participated in the agenda “Gender Biased Sex Selection”. Although we couldn’t surpass the competition, the conclave was an epitome of incredible human experience for us. We took the constant criticisms in our stride, and it only motivated us to burn the midnight oil but to ensure that we leave with a sizeable impact in the society that will change India for the good.
Eclectic Visits BITS Pilani
Tired faces, travelling since two days, we reached Bits Pilani, Rajasthan and while we were getting our ID cards we were greeted with almost 20000 people in one single campus. Yes that's how huge Oasis is.
This fest never stops. From going in for quizzes at 2AM to getting up at 8 AM for the JAM, Oasis'2018 is an experience of a lifetime. It's more than a college festival. We Participated in all quizzing events and Turncoat and JAM in Literary Events, and Kumar Prakarsh, IIIT Pune made history when he made it to the finals of JAM, when he became the first non- BITSian to qualify for the JAM finals in the last 7 years of Oasis. Kartik Ramaswamy, the renowned JAM master praised this lad when he finished 4th in the Top 8. On Day 2, the Quizzing trio of Rakshit Ranjan, Kumar Prakarsh and Reetik Ranjan (BITS Pilani) finished 3rd in The Music Quiz, Oasis and also made it to the finals of The General Quiz.
It was once in a lifetime experience to witness a college fest that never stops(literally), exploring the campus as late as 3 AM in the morning and witnessing one of the best performances by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Abhishek Upmanyu.
Oasis'18 will be etched in our memories.
Social Conclave 2.0
Social Conclave 2k19, organised by NMIMS, Mumbai is definitely something to fall back and be nostalgic about. We participated in two domains, ‘Urban Sanitation’ and ‘Social Inclusion of Differently Abled People’ to name them. And although we couldn’t bring victory home, our delegates made their mark and had people’s eyes and ears to them with their innovative ideas and solutions with a definite urge to change the face of the current world.
We witnessed 3 days of chaos, hustling, values, friendship and life. All in all, 72 hours of exhilarating adrenaline rush !! We came home to the fact that losing sometimes is as important as its counterpart because it teaches you things you might miss blinded by your infamous win !
