    The participating classes spanned the department's undergraduate and postgraduate classes, with each year of a course functioning as a separate team. A total of eight teams participated in Throwball, and the Volleyball matches included a total of six teams. Teams from the courses of PSEco, PSEng, MSW CCP, and MSW HRDM showed great enthusiasm and participated in both the events. The matches took place every day on the aforementioned dates before class hours and during lunch breaks, between 6 am to 9 am and 1 pm to 2 pm respectively, on the campus volleyball and throwball courts. A knockout system was created for the participating teams and matches were held accordingly, as per schedule, barring a few being rescheduled due to the weather.

    The six-day event concluded on the 14th of May, with Throwball being won by 4PSEco, 6PSEco as the runners-up, and Volleyball being won by 4PSEco, followed by 6PSEco as well. The overall winner of the tournament was the 4PSEco team.

Sayonara: MA Applied Sociology 2022 Graduating Batch Farewell

    The preparation for the farewell was planned two weeks ago by the 1st year post-graduate students of the MA Applied Sociology department. They made several groups like dancing, singing, games, etc. The whole class came together to bring forth a grand celebration for the seniors. The farewell theme was ‘Oscars,’ and all the seniors came dressed as Bollywood stars from various movies. And all the seniors made a grand entrance on hit Bollywood songs. Harshada and Sanskriti hosted the event, and the HOD of the Sociology department, Dr Victor Paul Sir, inaugurated the event with an inspiring speech followed by showing the seniors some of their memory snippets which the seniors themselves recorded, and the video was edited by Swagata Ganguly of 1st year MA sociology department. Their reactions were priceless as all of them were filled with a rush of nostalgia. The event was then followed by Sounandini’s solo performance. After that, they played a game wherein they had to name their favourite place inside the campus and talk about the most memorable memory of their entire campus life.
