The event comprised of two team based activities. The first activity i.e. ‘Pin the Balloon’ primarily focussed on the role of non-verbal communication in teamwork. The activity required each team member to pass on a message to the other member solely through his/her body language & gestures. This message had to be conveyed starting from one end of the team to another and on the basis of the message received by the last team member, a particular type & colour of balloon was to be pinned & burst in the minimum possible time. The unique feature of this activity was that the team members could not communicate verbally to each other.

The second activity, namely - ‘Crossing the Explosive Stretch’, highlighted the importance of coordination amongst team members, out-of-the-box thinking and time management for effective team functioning. As part of this activity, team members had to cross an explosive stretch together by stepping on the footmats which was the only safe zone provided to them. The activity was quite challenging as stringent rules had to be followed by the team members while crossing the given stretch in shortest possible time. A panel comprising of two faculty members namely- Dr. Neha Shukla and Dr. Neelam Dhall judged the team performances. Based on evaluation of team performances in both the activities, winners were declared. Cash prizes worth Rs. 2500/-, Rs.1500/- and Rs. 1000/- were awarded to the first, second and third teams.
