If the Sun never sets in the British Empire, it is primarily because the British were never tired of or backward in playing various games. A sportive institute generates adventurous pupils and winning a battle becomes their birthright. Even Napoleon admitted that the battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton. It’s not the will to win that matters, because everyone has that. It’s, rather, the will to prepare to win that matters.
With fervor in their feathers and ardor in their arsenal, eight elegant engineering institutes including VSSUT, CET, IGIT, GCE, PMEC, KIIT, ITER and NITJ joined NITR from 12-14 January 2018 to celebrate its first edition of the biggest sports extravaganza, VRIDDHI 2018 to make it a grand success after four years, coming to the fore with a new name, and make a mark on the audience and participants alike. Gaming events like cricket, football, badminton, basketball, volleyball had already abuzz the entire aura of NITR. Several athletic events of track and field along with power lifting, sports quiz and futsal were also part of the plan. However, less participation led to the cancellation of these events. VSSUT, Burla returned victorious in its crusade to conquer the crown in several games. The VSSUT gladiators proved to be efficacious in rupturing the adamant of adversities and titled their tympany of triumph in the scintillating sands of turbulent times.
Every game was played by its own rules and regulations. The participants of various categories had to play league matches in specific formats. The three days event witnessed unprecedented victories and defeats, elated fist-pumps, nail biting finishes and petty heart breaks as well. Both the categories of men and women perceived the 1st runners-up recognition bagged by VSSUT, Burla in both the formats of badminton, NITR being the warrior of the throne. Despite of sweat-tripping and blood-dripping performances, the basketball team, however, suffered from the laments of dark fortune. The VSSUT cricket team nailed the enthusiasm and excitement of the audience with an awesome game, but NITR hammered the final hit on the nail, leaving VSSUT team as the runners-up. The game of volleyball was also equally enthralling for team VSSUT, which knocked down the 2nd runners-up, NITR being at the top once again. Wow was the winning wand waved by the weavers of wish list who wooed wonderful goals in the finals and fascinated the fathom of the furiously favored fuchsia of football that facilitated the VSSUT team to traverse the track to triumph, quite toothsomely!
Team ViSSion congratulates all the participants who cutely killed the Chronos of cataclysms cruelly compiled and kept in front to captivate the charismatic caliber of the VSSUT team. The participants showed no mercy to malediction and raved the roar of their sportsmanship and team spirit on the grounds of a foreign institute. This is another step of struggle and honor beyond just academics; VSSUT still needs to unleash many of such crystal clear crackers in camouflage.
