Black Belters are on the game


The Annual Inter Faculty Freshers’ Tournament is one of the most important event for the freshers. All  the freshers from each and every faculty are gathered in order to make their faculty honoured, by winning the Freshers’ Championship. While some students engaged several sports events, every fresher made an effort to do at least one sports event. At the same time, each and every student came to support their faculty by keeping their academics away for a moment. Not only the freshers, but also seniors came and cheered for their faculty and give their maximum support to freshers. Though the Freshers’ Tournament was started on 2nd of March, there was a pause of it. But re-starting of the tournament created pleasure and hope in the hearts of freshers.
