There was buzz downhill for three days, people rushed up and down the hill more than usual, students got a chance to teach their Gurus and Gurus got a chance to show their other side. Yes, we are talking about Chakravyuh’2013, an event organized by Sportscom, where the students from PGP 16, PGP 17, Forex and the Faculty and Staff teams battled it out to establish their supremacy.
The primary idea behind Chakravyuh was to get the best out of the students enthusiastic about sports and also involve our Faculty and Staff members. Our Forex students have always participated in Kozhikode Football League and this was just the platform they needed to play some competitive football upfront as well as other outdoor sports. They did not disappoint anyone. The event hosted three outdoor games: Basketball, Volleyball and Football
The tournament began with the inaugural Volleyball match between PGP 16 and PGP 17. A well fought contest which was won by PGP-16. The first match of football between Forex and PGP 17 ended up as a one sided affair, where Forex thrashed PGP 17 with their perfect blend of skills and support from fellow Forex students, especially the girls who were roaring and cheering “Go Forex Go !”.
The next day witnessed some brilliant display of skills by Faculty and Staff teams in Basketball as well as Volleyball. Unfortunately, they ended up second best. They lost to PGP 17 in Basketball while to Forex in Volleyball. But the fight and the hunger they displayed was applauded by everyone present.
The third day marked the dominance of PGP 16. Brilliant play was put up by both the teams of Forex and Faculty+staff in Basketball and Football respectively. Both the teams fought rigorously but luck was not on their side and PGP 16 went on to steal the show.
The Basketball final was played between PGP 16 and PGP 17 in the presence of PGP chairperson Prof. C. Raju who was there to support the students. Though PGP 17 attacked and defended brilliantly and was fighting neck to neck but it was PGP 16 with their experienced unit and fine displays of skills which was able to emerge victorious.
The Volleyball final was between PGP 16 and Forex. The players of PGP 16 were too hot to be handled by the Forex team in the first set. While Forex team bounced back in the second set, the last set was completely dominated by PGP 16 and they won the match 25-13, 22-25, 25-14.
The much awaited Football final was also between PGP 16 and Forex. The occasion for the grand finale was set and a good audience had gathered to watch the teams fight it out in the arena. The Forex team was craving for revenge for the loss in Volleyball final. As usual their team was supported by a good number of FOREX students who were singing songs and shouting slogans. PGP-16 also had a good support of students of PGP-16 and PGP-17. It was fascinating to see faculties and alumni turning up to witness the mega event. The match had well built attacks from the Forex that was countered clinically by the strong defensive wall of PGP 16. The latter’s attacks were also very impressive. Quite unexpectedly PGP-16 proved too difficult to beat and ended up as winner with the score line reading 2-0.
After winning all the finals of Basketball, Volleyball and Football, PGP 16 was the undoubted winner of Chakravyuh 2013. Chakravyuh has set the stage for upcoming outpour of zeal and rivalries to be seen in KFL and Sangram. Yes, The Game is truly on!
