Mixing education with fun and competitiveness, Brainware University in collaboration with Brainware Group of Institutions organized Ad-Lib, the Intra College Open Extempore Competition on the 3rd of November, 2017. 75 participants who enrolled for the competition were divided into three batches of 25 each as they battled their wits out for the ultimate prize of a trophy, certificate and prize money. President of the Brainware Communication Club Smt. Anandita Das opened the competition with her encouraging words and the strength of 75 was cut down to 30 after the 1st round. The 2nd round saw Sri Satyabrata Podder of the ME Department and Dr. Arpita Basak of the MBA Department join Mrs. Das in the judges panel as the strength was further cut down, to the final 15, who would now battle it out for the coveted trophy. In view of their creativity and innovative thought process, the committee decided to hand out two more awards along with the customary 1st, 2nd and 3rd, which were the Critics’ Choice Awards, one each for a male and a female. The grand final saw the Principal of BGI, Prof. (Dr) Subhasish Banerjee and Dr. Shyamal Goswami of the ME Department take over the reins at the judges table. After an intense and brainstorming 45 minutes of oratory Pragna Debnath of the BCA Department, Nidhi Jaiswal of the ECE Department and Akashdeep Lama of the MCA Department were adjudged 3rd, 2nd and 1st respectively.
