ENTHUSIA: Sports build character and have contributed to racial and social integration, even to the development of lingo, as sports terms and expressions slide into everyday usage. India, the 2nd most populous nation in the world managed to bag a mere 6 medals in the 2012 Olympics, while China bagged a total of 88!
So we see that the need for encouragement in sport is very essential in India. Thus, Enthusia, the Annual National-level Sports Fest of V.J.T.I. serves as a platform for students to showcase their talents in the field of sports. According to some of the reviews of participants from other colleges, Enthusia is one of the best and most well organized festivals in the state!
ENTHUSIA’s inter-college events will be held on 9th to 16th January 2014.
Inter-department events will be held on 17th to 29th January 2014.
