Its barely been a week into the new term but the buzz is back here at IMNU.After getting the end term marks the "shaken and stirred"(pun inteneded) students have more or less settled down and are ready for a new innings.New term,new subjects....its a start from the scratch again!!!
Meanwhile...one of the premiere football tournaments "COPA" which had been postponed due to rains last month saw the finals being played today...Two of the best football teams of IMNU the CZARS clashed against the PIRATES.
Czars defeated the Stallions to reach the finals.Pirates on the other hand defaeted Phoneix on their road to the finals.The final match was a closely contested one as both the teams held their nerves till full-time without letting the other team score a goal.This led to penalty shootouts wherin the Pirates scored four out of four shots and the Czars could only convert two goals out of the four shots.
Thus PIRATES were crowned the COPA 2009 CHAMPIONS....first time in the history of IMNU the same section,PIRATES have won the first two major sports tournaments of the year SLAMDUNK and COPA....

Donating blood is like extending a helping hand to someone who is in dire need of his life. As they say ‘Raktadan – Jeevandan’ .
We can save someone’s life by simply donating our blood, which is completely harmless to us. Our blood gets replaced itself in a period of 3 months, so we can donate 1 unit of blood every 3 months.
To help those who need blood to sustain or survive, Rotaract Club of Nirma Institute organized a blood donation camp at the instiute campus on 3rd and 4th September.
“Your 1 unit of blood can save someone’s life.” The coordinators appealed to everyone to take part in this venture.
It was in collaboration with the non profit making organisation ,PRATHMA

FUN AND LEARN
Last week saw the yuva coordinators in action again.
A task which was a real need of the times when "Cleanliness begins at home."
Our unstoppables took this present day demand in notice and worked upon it by spreading awareness among such people who do not have any clue about all this.
Mr. Devendra Parekh, from Environmental Sanitation Institute(ESI) was present on the occasion for guiding everyone,the labor workers and the students as well.
GUIDING THEM THROUGH
More than 60 construction workers including women and children were given information and insight about the day to day hygiene. Various experiments were performed to make people realize about the importance of cleanliness.
THE TOKEN FOR SAFAI ANDOLAN
At the end, soaps were distributed to the construction workers as a token to start the "SAFAAI AANDOLAN" in their life.
YUVA was definitely able to bring some awareness among them.
Its been quiet a while since COPA and SLAMDUNK began.However the rains here at IMNU have been pouring since the past few days making it impossible to play Football.Basketball though also moving behind schedule had managed to stage the CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS on 31st August.
A breif update on the SLAMDUNK... Stallions defeated Czars and reached the semifinals to clash with the Titans.The Pirates meanwhiloe defeated the Bisons and were the first team to qualify for the inaugural championship finals.The Stallions defeated the Titans and qualified for the finals too.The stage was set for the formidable Stallions to clash against the underdogs Pirates.The best thing about basketball matches has been that all sections come out in full support of their teams along with banners,their very own anthems and flags.This really pumps up the players and playing under the flood lights is awsum!!
So here we were all set for the finals...there had been a lot of bakar on IP on who would be the winner but now it was time to fight it out on the courts.The game started with the Stallions scoring the first points.Throughout the first quarter the ball kept hitting the basket and and the board bit no more points were scored in the remaining of the quarter.Till the end of the first quarter,both teams were level on a scoreline of 2-2
In the second quarter the Pirates got their game together and started playing to their ability and showed why they were in the finals....at the end of this quarter Pirates were leading by 6 points.
The third quarter saw the Stallions bounce back into the game with 2 back to back shots.Another quarter of exciting basketball came to an end with Pirates still leading with a slender two point lead.
The final quarter...herein both the teams put in all their efforts to swing the match in their favour.....after some nail bitting moments..the final whistle was blown and PIRATES emerged as the SLAMDUNK 2009 CHAMPIONS.
Special thanks to the SportsComm for making this event a success!!!
