Zoom into the campus central of Kamala Nehru College on the 13th of September and you shall witness some adroit minds at work, some creative juices overflowing accompanied by a lot of numerical analysis floating in the air. In a situation like this let worry not overpower, for you are at the enthralling Commerce Fest of the college, named Commxcelsior to my extreme fascination.

As grand as it might seem, what is veiled behind the making of this fest is also pure grandeur. With an anticipated participation of more than 600 students from across the universities (as enumerated last year), this fest is soaring high to make a mark of its own. Their sponsors range from Haldirams and tupper ware to 104 FM and an array of others. If caught amidst a rare spurt of boredom, it shall be very short lived as you’d find yourself surrounded by the most quirky stalls of hair braiding, tattoos, tarot card reading and accessories along with some delectable food delights of Subway and others to satiate your hunger pangs.

Commxcelsior will be organizing five commerce centric activities to test the businessperson in you.  Commencing at 10.30am with AD-MAD, which is an advertisement making competition, you could awaken your creative as well as marketing geniuses to grab prizes worth Rs 13,500 in a team of three. Simultaneously set to be conducted are some presentations depicting a Business plan on the theme of Social Entrepreneurship. This activity invites participation from teams of 2 members each, who will compete for prizes worth more than Rs 15000. Next is the most highlighted happening, a mock stock exchange taking place at 2 pm, called ‘Bulls and Bears’ that shall put your dexterous skills of sale, purchase and investment to check. Each team can have two members for this activity, and strive for cash prices worth Rs 15000. The same will be held alongside a Commerce Quiz, which shall be played with a partner where the team can gloriously display knowledge of the subject in text and in practice. Prizes up for take here are worth Rs 9000.The final activity shall be a group discussion at 2.30 pm that seeks participation from those willing to discuss Commerce related agendas, with a bait of Rs 6,500.

“It will be an enriching experience for all those who believe in thinking out of the box and conquering the world with their knowledge” says Upasana, the General Secretary of the Commerce society. So if you want some stimulating fun along with some gripping exchange of ideas, this is the event that you should definitely not give a skip. Pin it up for the 13th of September, as lots of frolic awaits you in the environs of Kamala Nehru College.
