Day 3: Events leading in and out.. January 25, 2010Posted by sangharsh2010 in Uncategorized.
There certainly was a lot of action today..
From the dewy hours of the chilly morning, starting from the hockey match in SAI complex, which IIMB clinched with a 2-0 win against IIMA, through to the volley ball matching starting right about now, between IIMB and IIML.. a host of excitement has happened.
In the early matches between IIMA and IIML, which saw quite a few turns of the wheel, we saw IIML getting a lead of 2-1 after the singles round with the likes of Vishal playing strong for IIML and Anil of IIMA winning his singles. Anil’s win was not in vain however when, IIMA went on to win both doubles and clinch the title with a 3-2 win over IIM lucknow.

Kavash opened the event on a good note for IIMB by winning against Deepak of IIMA in three close games with a score of 3-0.. The Scores of the first two individual games were 13-11, 14-12. Shantanu added on to the IIMB tally by clinching another close match by getting a 3-2 win against IIMA putting IIMB ahead by 2-0 in badminton. IIMB seemed to be on a roll as it continued to win the doubles 13-11, 11-6, 11-6 thanks to kavash and ashok.. And the drama continued in the IIMb Vs IIML matches when IIMB came back from a loss of 0-2 to win a 3-2 victory over IIML in a dramatic turn of events..
Finally the scores stand at IIMB beat IIMA 3-0, IIMB wins against IIML 3-2, IIML scores a 3-0 victory against IIMA..
The story goes along the same lines as in badminton, only the sport and the players are different. IIMB wins 7-5, 7-5 against IIML and VV proves again why he is one of the star players of IIM Bangalore.
Coming to everybody’s favourite sport, we did see IIML shining after posting a 6-wicket victory over IIMA while chasing a target of 155.
IIMA turned tables on IIML by getting a lead of 2-0 after winning both the singles.
Ishan bhanu from IIMB swam his way to a photofinish at breaststroke and butterfly. IIMA also showed the swimming prowess of its student Karthikeyan who won both 100 and 50m freestyle. In the other swimming events, IIMB won 50X4 freestyle, with Anand Biswas winning the 50m backstroke..
IIM repeats its TT success by posting a narrow 3-2 win over IIMA.
On a parting note:
As we write this piece, we are planning to rush to the badminton court to see VV of IIM Bangalore play his last game of badminton for IIMB right now.. Just the thought makes us feel sad! Kudos to VV!!
Day 3: Girls’ basketball- Clueless on Court January 25, 2010Posted by sangharsh2010 in Uncategorized.
The girls’ basketball match was one of the most anticipated events and it lived up to expectations – from one side at least. Like they say, a score is worth more than a thousand words, and the final score at today’s match was 35-1. Right from the word go, the IIMA girls had no clue what had hit them. Within a few minutes, the only goal for the girls from A was to clear the half court line; in the second half of the match, that further changed to just getting hold of the ball.
From a match that began with almost no spectators thanks to an exciting boys’ volleyball match, the girls’ basketball game soon saw more than its fair share of the junta. And they had enough and more to cheer about, because while the IIMA girls were busy trying to get their hands on the ball, the IIMB girls went on what can only be called a complete rampage. They passed, they collected rebounds, they got their shots in.
All in all, there’s nothing that can be said to describe the match. In Barney’s words, it was legen… wait for it… dary!!
Day 3: The Scoreboard January 25, 2010Posted by sangharsh2010 in Uncategorized.
Along with the glimpse into the various sports, we now bring the answer to the question that is sure to be plaguing many minds. The scoreboard tally..
As evident, IIMB leads the scores with a century and followed by IIMA which is at a score of 70. The lucknow contigent is at a distant 11..
But there are still events left, tides to be turned and fortunes to be reversed..
The forecast?? Just wait and watch!!
Volley Marathon January 25, 2010Posted by sangharsh2010 in Uncategorized.

It sure was!! With the bands of IIMA and IIMB sharing the same stage to put up one of the most exciting performaces in IIMB, the spectators soon forgot all about the day-end scoreline. The show highlighted the underlying thought prevalent in the minds of the students – they’ll give it all and fight till the end for the honour of their college, but when it comes to having a good time, boundaries cease to exist. And that was what the show was all about.
The show started with a bang with the IIMB band presenting a fantastic version of Kandisa. With the spectators’ attention now firmly on the stage, the 2 bands then enthralled the audience with some evergreen numbers such as One last breath, Hotel California, Pretender, Toss the feathers, Sound of Muzac, Smoke on the water, Wake up Sid and some Floydian melodies.
THe show ended at around 1 AM in the night, but that was when the party started.
And for some pics… here they are!

The first cricket match at Sangharsh was a tan lovers delight. The locals scored a challenging 167/9 in 25 overs, thanks to classy knocks by Shini, Tshering and Raghu. The IIML team however succumbed to 104 in 18 overs, though not before putting up a fight. The highlight of the IIML team was Abhinav, who, in scalping 5 wickets in about two overs almost managed to get the IIMB team in deep <censored>. The locals, however, prevailed.
Make sure you dont miss the IIMA vs IIML tie tomorrow morning at 10.
