Team Cultural Secretary, summarizes the importance of Kritva in a single sentence: "In the process of learning how to manage it all, one must not forget, occasionally to just let go of it all".
Kritva, meaning " to do ", in Sanskrit, came true to its meaning, the 60 hour marathon of a fest left no time for boredom. Kritva consisted of star- studded performances, a plethora of cultural events and management games. An event like Kritva is an experience in itself for both the organizers, as well as the participants.
For most budding managers, a B-school is the last fun stop before they enter the big, bad corporate world. However, the Business schools today leave students gasping for extra-curricular time. This is where B-school fests have a major role to play.
